Tutorial using Born Pretty Store Items

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
put together a Step-By-Step Picture Tutorial on how I achieved this manicure.

BK - 21 (ID: 1062) from Born Pretty Store and Bourjois - Rose Lounge

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.

Dried Flower Wheel (ID: 3809) from Born Pretty Store

Dried Flowers

To use a whole flower from the Dried Flower Wheel (ID: 3809)
from Born Pretty Store would have been a bit too big for my nails so
cut them carefully in half. I flipped the flower upside down to see where
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. used a manicure stick to press
down the flowers and added adhesive to where it was needed.

French Tips

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.

The BK Fashion Nail Polish - 21 (ID: 1062) is vibrant nail polish as it has
both Red and Silver shimmery particles. To get a smooth shiny surface apply
Top Coat. The Dried Flower Wheel (ID: 3809) has small flowers in various
colors, there's 3 of each. Photos taken in Natural Light if not otherwise noted.
