This is my first time using dried flowers. And it was not as hard as I thought
it would be. You do have to be patient when working with dried flowers as they
are delicate and somewhat fragile, otherwise you will risk ruining them. I have

Base and Color
First I applied a base coat to my nails. Then I painted my thumb and ringfinger
as accent nails with two coats of BK Fashion Nail Polish - 21 (ID: 1062) from
Born Pretty Store and the others with 2 coats of Bourjois - 28 Rose Lounge.
|BM-310 and Max Factor - Angel Nails|
And at this point, when the polish was dry I applied Top Coat. Next step
was to add delicate shimmery stamping to pointer, middle and pinky. I did
this with Bundle Monster BM-310 using Max Factor - 882 Angel Nails.

the center was so I could cut right in the middle. To adhere the flowers
to my nails I used Nail Foil Adhesive. I applied the glue and waited a
few minutes for it to become tacky. I used a manicure stick to press
down the flowers and added adhesive to where it was needed.
When the flowers was pressed down I applied french tips with the
After that it was time to seal it in with 2 coats of Top Coat over it.
