April Showers Challenge - May Flowers

Hello everyone :)
Today I have one of the last April Showers Challenge posts for you all! I'll be finishing this challenge off this week and hopefully be moving onto a new challenge soon, I have lots of new things lined up for you all so keep an eye out ;p
Anyway, this challenge was May Flowers and I've been thinking about it for some time. I didn't want to try and recreate a flower on my nails as I know it would look awful :P So I've been looking around for something cute and fun and this is what I decided to do!!
Pretty dotting tool flowers! :D
I used three coats of China Glaze Octa Gone wild for the base of the nails, I then used a dotting tool to create the flower shapes using Revlon Lunar and then added a center dot with OPI Rumples Wiggin'.
I'm so pleased with how these turned out, I thought they'd be a horrible splodgy mess but they look very cute :) These are so easy to create with a dotting tool and you can use different colour combinations! I really wanted to use a holo base as the sun has just come out here in the UK so I wanted something flashy :P
I'm also really happy with how my pictures came out. I've never had much success capturing holo polishes with my camera but they came out great today!

Have you tried making flowers with a dotting tool before? what are your favourite holo polishes at the moment? Let me know in the comments :)
Thanks for reading :)

  1. LOVE this! The holo is gorgeous and the flowers are perfect! :)

  2. Your flowers are so cute! I love how they turned out :O)

  3. This looks so great! I tried to freehand black and white flowers and my DH kindly told me they looked like little flies... Clearly, I need a dotting tool. Yours look so cute over the holo, too.

    1. Thank you :) Haha little flies :P Dotting tools have helped me out so much with my nail art and they're so cheap from ebay :)
