Cath Kidston Inspired Nail Art

This week I decided to try quite a detailed nail art look based on a Cath Kidston style flower print. Below is the look I created and if you want to find out how I achieved this keep reading...

What will you need?

You will need a variety of different coloured nail varnishes depending on the colour flowers and base you want. I used varnishes in baby and pale blue, purple, green, mint, dark pink and light pink. You will also need a nail art tool (alternatively a hair grip or cocktail stick would work fine) and a piece of paper to blob the nail varnish onto in order to easily pick up the varnish to apply to the nails.

Step by Step Guide...

Step 1: After applying the blue base coat and waiting for it to fully dry I took the dark pink nail varnish and created rough rose shapes. I added two of these to each nail.

Step: Next I added the purple flower shapes, roughly adding an odd circle shape to achieve this. I added two or three to each nail.

Step 3: Next using the mint colour I added lines coming out of the flowers in order to create leaves. I also added a dot of the pale blue in the centre of the purple flowers.

Step 4: Using a paler pink nail varnish I roughly added this over the top of the dark pink roses, mainly in the centre and around the edges.

Step 5: After completing step 4 I was not happy with the leaves as I didn't think they stood out enough. Therefore I went over the top of the mint colour I previously applied with a brighter green colour. 

Finished Look: Once you have completed all steps wait for your nails to dry and add a top coat over the top to prevent chipping.

Hope you like this look as much as I do and good luck creating this look yourselves!!
