Flowers

Hi everyone!!  Happy Sunday!

I wanted to share with you today a manicure I did for a competition on Instagram.  There are many nail enthusiasts on there and competitions are all the craze now.  Cyberchick (follow her for her cute manis) hosted a flower competition and I decided to give flowers a try.

I was already wearing my Kim-pletely in Love/Space Queen combo and I thought it would be cool to do red and gold.  I used my always reliable bobby pin as my dotting tool.  I started by adding gold dots on the nail (I used Beauty UK Aztec).  For the red, I used Tapping Tips Paint it Red.  I used the bobby pin to place dots around the gold dots, creating the look of a flower.  Here is the result:

I was pleasantly surprised at how this turned out, especially because it was my first time trying it.  And guess what?  I won third place!  Woohoo!!

What do you guys think of this mani?  Have you ever done flower nail art?
