The same nail contest that I have been talking about had a theme day of “Flower”. Again, a million ideas popped in to my head but I wanted to do something slightly different than I had done before. I remembered seeing a few different dandelion nail designs before so I Googled it and my favorite one was by madmanis.blogspot.com.
I began with a base coat and two coats of Revlon “Hazy”. Once dry, I used Milani striper polish in black to draw the stems of the dandelions. I looked through all of my brushes and decided they weren’t thin enough to create the dandelion affect. I cut a hair off a brush and dipped the tip in white acrylic paint (You can see the tiny white hair in the first pic between my fingers) and drew the little dandelion petals which gave an amazing wispy look. I topped it with Essie “Matte About You” which is my favorite matte nail top coat.
