Nail Art: Van Gogh Inspired Sunflower Nail Look!

 BarryM Gelly in Greenberry [L] + Guava [R]

 China Glaze Sun-Kissed, Essie Fear or Desire, Essie The More The Merrier

Hey Beauties and Nail Art Lovers! The summer is almost over and I decided to create a slightly crazy in terms of colours nail look. It started of as just alternated colour polkadots, but I thought it wasn't adventurous enough, so I decided to cover the polkadots and add some neon yellow flowers. The result is slightly messy and so it kind of reminds me of that legendary Sunflower painting by Van Gogh...

So here is how I created it: Firstly I always protect my nails by applying one coat of OPI Nail Envy [the original] as a base, then I applied two coats of BarryM Gelly Hi-Shine in Greenberry and Guava alternating the nails. After rectifying the polkadot situation I then dotted [using my Cheeky dotting tools] a neon yellow flower shape using China Glaze in Sun-Kissed, which is a shimmery acid yellow. Next I applied one offsetting dot into the centre of the flower, choosing Essie Fear or Desire, which is a cream bright orange. And finally to add some foliage I applied double green leave detail to each flower, using Essie The More The Merrier, which is a cream pea green. To tone it slightly down you can just do the sunflowers on one accent nail, that would safe you a lot of time!
