Fresh n Flowery nail art

Hello Ladies,

Hope you are all doing good and hope this week is on its verge to bring a lot of joy to your life :) This week started off with a sad note for me though... Off lately, I have developed a new hobby - Gardening.. You must be wondering why must I be sad about it, right?? Well, I have made a separate area in my garden for plants used for food and skin care like coriander, fenugreek , curry leave, aloe etc.. I had to use to bricks to construct this area.. It all turned to be good - but I broke my nails on my right hand.. Not one but three!!! Can you believe it?? Huh!! :(:( *sob*

I have been posting nail art for the last few days and I am happy to announce that I am improving.. lol. I started writing this post to actually write a review and swatch Lakme's Purple it! nail polish, but just found that I have lost the pics :(:(:(:(

So, this lucky one is on my blog today!

I received my first package of my nail art tools from e-bay - a fifteen pcs nail art brush set... Yayy!!  I am still unsure on how to use these brushes.. Puja, may be you can help us with this.. lol...

I was very curious and restless in trying out something with these brushes.. I wanted to keep it simple - yet without polkas.. I have been dotting my nails a lot :) One of my colleagues actually asked out why don't I try something different :D

Instead of babbling on and on, I'll let you guys see my venture for yourself :)



I must say, this is one of the most easiest nail arts I have ever done..  This brings fresh summery feeling every time I look at it.


Products used

1. Envy nail paint in Alpine Snow Matte (white base)
2. Colorbar Amethyst (flowers)
3. An old Eyetex Dazzler nail polish in leaf green (leaves)
4. A long bristle brush ( for drawing leaves)
5. A dotting tool that came with the set.



sorry for the low quality pic - taken from my mobile cam indoors

 The entire set of brushes had cost me around $1 ( actually $0.99) which was 53 INR then :P

I had painted my nails with a white paint , then made leaf like strokes and added flowers to the leaves... Bingo!! You have your floral fresh nail art... I am super excited.. lol!!!





I hate having one shorter nail than the other.. I chopped all my nails again.. *sob*^.^*sob*



The brush made drawing leaves a easier job :) This should be a perfect nail art for short nails :P

One pic on my favorite background.. lol.. My coconut tree..



One last pic - taken indoors : On my computer table, with flash on :)



I really wish, hope and pray that you like this nail art as much as I do.. As usual - keep commenting and help me improve and show your love and support by following..

See you all in another swatch/review post tomorrow.. I will be posting brown nail paint for the first time in the history of addictedtonailpaints!!!!!


Cheers,

Amrin
