British Nail Bloggers - Purple Week

Recently the British Nail Bloggers have been running Colour Me Crazy themed weeks and this week is purple!

Fortunately for me I was already wearing a stunning purple so it was easy to add some simple purple nail art.

The base mani is the very lovely Lizzie by piCture pOlish – but more on this polish to come shortly on the blog.

For the nail art I decided to do this sort of half flower shape that I’ve seen in my hours of trawling through Google images, and I was amazed to discover that it is a lot easier than it looks! My flowers may not be as refined or elaborate as some but I did them in five minutes with very little issue, so these are a perfect way to spice up a mani as well as looking quite impressive!

I used a short, square tip nail art brush with China Glaze Jungle Queen from the On Safari collection and drew three, rough triangle-like shapes started at the edge of my nail. I then used a Barry M nail art pen in black to neaten up the edges, making them a bit more petal shaped and with the flicky tips. The white was using a Models Own nail art striper.

I will definitely be trying this technique again with different colours and maybe a load of glitter! I’d also love to see if any of you have tried it for the first time.
