Manicure Monday 9th June – Daisy Nails Tutorial

Today’s nails are daisy inspired thanks to this floral crown from Primark.
The base colour is Nails Inc Kensington Palace Gardens with Dior Spring Ball over the top to add shimmer.

I decided to paint 2 different daisy designs, both of which can be fairly simple to do.
The larger daisy design can be created by using a nail art pen. I added petals using the fine brush and then added them using the own end too, to make a thin petal effect. Then I added a yellow centre and once that was tacky I created the holy texture by pressing a toothpick into the tacky centre.

The dotted Daisy’s are made using the pen end of the white and yellow nail pen which is the easier version of the 2 especially on the non dominant hand!
