Flowery Nails with Avon Nailwear Pro +

I'm sick of the grey skies, constant rain and all round mugginess.  So over the weekend I got inspired to play around with some polish and my dotting tools to see what I could create.  From left to right I used Avon's Sea Breeze, Viva Pink and Lemon Sugar.  All bright shades, perfect!


And this is what I came up with!  I applied two coats of Sea Breeze onto my nails and then started off making little random dots with Lemon Sugar.  I could have stopped there but no, I was on a mission.  I can't keep plants alive to save my life and so I wanted flowers on my nails dang it.  I did some more dots around the yellow ones with Viva Pink, leaving some of the yellow dots plain and voila, a garden on my nails!

Easy peasy lemon squeezy.  This is something I'll be playing around with in the future for sure and if you've no dotting tools, just use a toothpick or the end of a dried up ballpoint pen.

Do you like my garden ladies?
