Floral Collage Manicure

Recently I've noticed some accent nail design using ring and middle finger. I'm not a big fan of accent nails but I wanted to try out something that looked like a collage (with different flowers) and it was on accent nails only. If you haven't guessed it yet then yes for today's manicure I did flower accent nails.

Tutorial:

I applied White on White by China Glaze on my index and middle finger; and 230 Portobello Pink by Rimmel London on remaining of my fingers. For the dry flowers I applied a clear slow drying top coat (on the area I wanted to apply the flower on), using a pointy end of the wooden stick (you should slightly wet the end by touching it on the area of your nail that has the clear polish on) I picked up the flower and placed it. Using the flat end of the wooden stick, I pressed down on the flower to make it stay; NOTE: if you have a hard time keeping the flower flat from one end then apply clear top coat under the petal and press on it. Once you are done apply a top coat. Final look with light flowers:

Final look with brighter flowers:
Image bellow (and end of my tutorial <= if you want to see it from different angles) shows the surface of my nail after applying top coat. Even though on my nails it seems like the flower might be sticking out but with a top coat it was flat.
I purchased the dried flowers from ebay for $2.00 (for 60 flowers). Just search for 'dried flowers nail art' and if you want it at the lowest price select 'Price + Shipping: lowest first.'
Hope you enjoyed my post for today. If you liked it or hated it let me know in the comment or reaction section below.
