Mother's Day Flower nails

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mum's out there.I hope you are getting pampered and look after on this special day.

I have a Mother's Day nail mani today.
This is also for the Finger Food’s Theme Buffet Challenge/Mother's day!


Items I used.
  • Sinful Colors polish in Snow me white.
  • Saffron polish in Pearl Pink.
  • NYC top coat.
  • Black nail art pen.

I took the inspiration from my Daughter Kim's bedroom curtains.
Kim was the one who gave me the idea so I thought I would give it ago and do freehand painting these flowers onto nails!


I started off the mani with a white base coat to make the pink color pop more.then when dry I painted the Pink polish on each nail.
I carefully started to copy the flower pattern freehand onto each nail using the nail art pen in black.

I then applied the top coat and that is it :)



I really enjoyed doing this manicure and love the flower pattern.
Hope you liked them to.
Thanks for reading and if you haven't followed me yet I would love you to, and please check out the wonderful manis below!
Have a wonderful Day!

Animal print nails

Hey lovely friends how are we all? good I hope.

I have a mani to go with my new blog name logo! I was having a mess around trying different looks and I thought I would do the same pattern.



 Items I used are as follows...
  • Sally Hansen polish in Shocking nude.
  • Rimmel polish in Too cool to tango.
  • Filthy Gorgeous polish in Rosey Posey.
  • Catrice Million styles effect glitter top coat.
  • Black nail art pen.
  • INM out the door top coat.

I started with the Sally Hansen shocking nude on each nail 2 coats.
Then I dabbed a few random messy dots using the Rosey posey polish and I did the same using the Rimmel polish on the ring finger.
I outlined the spots using the nail art pen and applied the glitter topper over the ring finger and little finger. then once dry I applied the clear top coat.



This is a very simple design to do and I had fun doing this :)
Hope you liked my Animal print nails mani :)

Thanks for stopping by please follow my blog if you haven't already.
