Cool Flower Nail Art

This nail art is so cool, even if I do say so myself. And the bonus part is that it’s so easy to recreate (Although a lot of patients is needed.)  In my opinion it looks better if you use contrasting colours like something dark and something light. I think my nails would have looked better if I had used a lighter coloured blue.

What you need
  • Two shades of nail varnish, I used Technic Black and Rebel nail varnish in shade 2
  • A top coat, I used Leighton Denny Crystal Finish
  • Nail Varnish remover
  • Cotton pads                     
  • A pencil
  • Cocktail sticks
  • Nail file
  • Nail clippers

Step 1

Get rid of any old nail varnish that could still be on your nails.

Step 2

Use the nail file and nail clippers to trim and shape your nails the way that you want to, I like my nails to be square with rounded edges.

Step 3

Paint your nails with the base colour you picked out. I used this turquoise colour because, to be honest I’d never seen it in my nail varnish collection before and I thought that it looked pretty. 


Step 4

Now for the fun part! Once your nails have dried, use the pencil to create 5 dots in a circle using the second colour that you picked out. Do this on one nail.

Step 5

Use one of the cocktail sticks to drag the dots towards the centre of the circle. Then repeat this and step 5 for all your other nails.

Step 6

Wait until all your nails are completely dry then use a top coat to conceal your awesome flower design.

And then you’re done! Hope your nails turned out great. Bye! Bye! XX

My List of 5 Film Recomendations

In Time
I found this film so cool. It's sort of like a SiFi new world kind of film. Basically the world is split into different sections based on how ‘rich’ you are. The world no longer operates with money; instead they pay for things with time. It quite hard to explain but as soon as you’re completely out of time you die. I really, really, really, enjoyed this film and I highly recommend watching it!

The Proposal
Wow I think this might be one of my most favourite films of all time. What happens is Ryan Reynold's character is forced to marry Sandra Bullock's character. It's so funny and a great film and I JUST LOVE IT!!!

Crazy Stupid Love
This film is amazing and it’s so heart-warming. There are loads of films set out in this way where there are different story lines, then at the end of the film they all come together, but I think that this one is definitely one of the best. The ending is so cool and I don't know about anyone else, but for me I didn't see it coming.

Magic Mike
You see Channing Tatum topless... do I need to say any more. Haha, I'm joking, obviously that is the first attraction to the film but behind that there is a really good story that grabs your attention.

Notting Hill
This I think might be my favourite film out of all of these. It’s about an average boy who meets a famous Hollywood star and falls in love with her. Some of the films in this list I admit are cheesy but this one definitely isn't. I can't praise this film enough and if you get a chance to watch it you definitely should.

Bye! Bye! XX
