I really love doing floral nails, I just don’t do them often enough! For these nails I wanted to revisit a style I did months ago that included stamping as part of the design.
I started out with 3 coats of Sonia Kashuk – Love Story, a pink leaning coral with a crelly type formula. Love this polish – even more so because I picked it up on clearance at Target for aroung $1.50. I really like the Sonia Kashuk line of polishes!
I allowed Love Story to dry completely and then stamped all of my nails with Sally Hansen – White On and Born Pretty Store plate BP-XL003. I just love quatrefoil and think that it was a perfect backdrop for this mani!
Using a small detail brush I began painting on the floral details. I didn’t have anything specific in mind so I have some pretty random flowers on my nails – but I tried to tie them together using a Lily of the Valley type flower.
Once I was done with the floral design, and they were all relatively dry, I put a coat of Butter London – Stratford Honey on top to add sparkle. I topped with Seche Vite, allowed that to dry and then topped with NYC – Matte Me Crazy.
- Essie – Grow Stronger Base Coat
- Sonia Kashuk – Love Story
- Sally Hansen – White On
- Zoya – Spencer
- OPI – Don’t Talk Bach to Me
- Butter London – Stratford Honey
- Seche Vite – Dry Fast Top Coat
- NYC – Matte Me Crazy
Whew! I used a lot of different polishes! Other than my inability to always stamp straight, I ended up being super happy with how these came out! 🙂
