My Tropical gradient flowers

Hi Friends
We are half way through the week and I hope your week has gone well so far?

I have a quick post for you today I did these flower nails the same day I did the silver flowers for the Finger Food’s Theme Buffet Challenge! flowers I posted the other day! click here to see.

I wasn't going to post this manicure as I wasn't sure if I liked them or not lol but seeming as my back kicked off again these past few days I thought I would share the manicure with you all.

The picture above is all the items I used for this manicure.
  • NYC polish in Pinstripe White.
  • Sally Hansen polish in Berry Juicy.
  • Barry M polish in Peach Melba.
  • Sally Hansen Dry Kwik Color Dryer clear.
  • Accurate nail art pens in Green. Orange. Yellow.
  • NYC clear top coat.
  • Make up sponge.
  • Color studs/beads.

I started with a White base coat then when dry I painted the 3 colors on to the Make up sponge using the Sally Hansen Berry Juicy the NYC white and the Barry M polish.I dabbed this onto each nail and re applied this about 3 times.I then took the Sally Hansen Kwik dry and blended the colors together.
When dry fully I then used the various nail art pens to create the flowers and stems and took my dotting tool and gently scraped the middle of each flower petal to get the effect similar to the pattern. 
I then applied the beads/studs to the center of each flower and applied the clear top coat.

Hope you liked my tropical flowers mani we all need some bright days hurry up summertime :)
