Floral Nail Art

Hello and Good Morning to all the lovely ladies out there! I did these very cute( I think :)) floral nails for The Crumpet's Amateur nail art contest for the month of April. The theme for this month is FLOWERS. This is the third time, that I am participating in this contest, starting from february :) and may be my last time as according to the rules, only a blog with less than 100 likes or followers can participate in this contest. I have 99 likes on my facebook page now and I can still enter:). This is also my entry to Tiptop nails South Africa 's Nail Art Contest, where the theme was Inspired by Nature.

I used..

Firstly, apply a base coat and one or two coats of your base color and let them dry completely.
Using a big dotting tool and black nail paint, start creating some random flowers as shown,

 Using a smaller dotting tool and the selected colors( I used blue, red and orange), create a small flower inside the black flower as shown. The idea is to get a black outline for the colorful flowers:).
 Add yellow dot in the middle of each flower.
 Using a toothpick and black nail paint start creating leaves randomly.
 Now add small green leaves inside the black ones as shown.
Finally apply a top coat and done :)!!

So, what do you think about these nails? Do let me know by commenting below and don't forget to join me for more updates:)!!
