Ombre and Spring Daisy Nail Art

I think its safe to say that spring is here and summer is on it's way, so today I created a spring daisy nail art and to make it slightly different I added an pastel ombre base to the look. As always I have put together a step-by-step tutorial so if you want to find out how I created this look then please keep reading...

What will you need?

To create this look I used nail varnish in pastel peach, pastel lilac, pastel blue, yellow and white. You will also need a top coat, a dotting tool and finally a small make-up sponge.
The nail varnish shades I used were: Barry M 'Matt White', Collection 'Lemon Soda' and 'Dynasty', Kiko '372 - Nude', Rimmel 'Sweet as Sugar' and Seche Vite 'Dry Fast Top Coat'.

Step-By-Step Tutorial:

Step 1: To begin with I gave all my nails an opaque base using the white nail varnish.

Step 2: Once the base was dry completely, I went in with the 3 pastel shades (peach, lilac and blue) on a small make-up sponge and created the ombre effect. I applied several layers in order to make the colours stand out more and to create a seamless ombre effect on the nail. 

Step 3: Next its time to create the flowers. I began by creating the petals using the white nail varnish on a dotting tool and then added a yellow dot to create the centre of each daisy. 

Step 4: Once the above steps are all dry, I went in with a top coat on each nail to seal in the design. 

And there you have your spring daisy nails with a pastel ombre base!
