31DC2013: Day Five - Blue Nails

Blue Nails for Day 5 of the 31 Day Challenge 2013.



I love nail art stamping but lately I have been enjoying trying my hand at free hand and other styles of nail art. This manicure is an attempt at free hand nail art.
For this manicure, I painted my nails with Barry M Gelly Blueberry. Then I used a small flat nail art brush and the nail Polish, Revlon Cupid (Pink) to paint 3-4 brush strokes in the shape of petals. Then I used a slightly smaller brush for some strokes of white - I used Sally Hansen Hard as Nails, White Tip. I added in some Blueberry again right at the edge. Lastly, dotted with Konad Yellow.



I was toying with the idea of doing one of those cloud manis for the Blue Nails look - but I sort of reversed that for these flowers at the tips of the nails. I think the flowers look rather sweet!
