Nail Art: Pretty Petals

Hello, my Pretties!

Yesterday I shared with you my Pink Wednesday post, which you can see HERE, and today I decided to add a little oomph to the pretty pink polish.

Here is attempt number two at nail art! My first was an embarrassing attempt but I still shared that with all of you. If you missed it, you can laugh at it HERE.

Wet n Wild Wild Shine
Nail Color in Frosted Fuchsia
I actually polished my nails in the car. Yup, that's the steering wheel in the background! And no, I wasn't driving at the time. I was parked outside my daughter's elementary school waiting for school to let out.

Here are the materials used.
4 Shades of nail polish, an orange stick,
and a sheet of paper.
The orange stick was used to create the design. You could also use a toothpick, a pen, or even a pencil. You know, if you don't have a dotting tool. I don't. The sheet of paper was so that I could pour out a little nail polish onto it and dip my orange stick into it. It just makes things easier. For me, anyway.

Nail polishes used.
Here is a closer look at the nail polishes I used.

Wet n Wild Wild Shine Nail Color in Frosted Fuchsia
L.A. Girl Matte Nail Color in Baby Pink
Wet n Wild Megalast Nail Color in (insert name here) The label rubbed off...
Ulta Nail Lacquer in Limelight

Aww...
Here is the finished look! I only did this on my thumb nail on my left hand. For obvious reasons...I am a righty and there is more work space on my thumb nail! Remember guys, I'm new at this nail art stuff.

I first polished the entire nail with Frosted Fuchsia. Next, I put a "round" spot of yellow to be the center of my flower. After that, I dotted Baby Pink dots all around the yellow center. And lastly, I used Limelight to draw on a stem and a tiny little leaf. The end.

I know it's not much, but for me, it's pretty cool. I will keep practicing and trying out new things. Who knows, maybe the next nail art post will be even better. Let's hope so!

Luv & Luk,
--L.

  2. @D.Sadie, thank you! I'm a newbie so the polite words motivate me to keep trying!

    @Dinorah♥, thank you very much :) I only have 2 of these L.A. Girl polishes and I got mine at the mall from a kiosk that was selling Konad nail art stamping kits (which I also purchased). Maybe you can try cherryculture.com I think I've seen them on there. Hope that helps :)

  4. @Hunter87, thank you very much!! Actually this is the only Ulta nail polish I have but I like it. All it takes is 2 coats, has a glossy finish. That's good enough for me :) I should have bought others :)

    @Vintage Makeup, LOL, I've never had a comment with the word EEEP in it! LOL, thank you so very much, sweetie :)

  5. Hey doll!!!
    For a "so called" newbie, thats a pretty good design! Its super cute and it really does look like a flower. Good Job!!!!

    Oh and you're so right, you dont need a real dotting tool, i actually used a bobby pin the other day and it came out fine. Or u can use an orange stick like you did, a toothpick. You should def keep doing more designs because you're obviously good at it :))

  6. @kellabella83, I'm blushing! LOL, thank you so much! I'm so interested in nail art but I'm terrified of it too. Reading such sweet comments like yours make me feel so much better and motivate me to keep trying. Thank you so much! XXOO :)

  8. @Amber, thank you so much, sweets! I'm the same way. I cheated with this nail art post. I only did the thumb nail. LOL. If I would have kept going, I would have taken it all off. Baby steps. LOL. But you should keep trying. It takes practice. Polishing my nails was always a disaster but I kept at it and now I can do a good job just painting them. Now I have to work on decorating them LOL :)
