Beautiful Blue with Pretty Petal Gems

Good evening lovelies

Usually I am so glad when it gets to Wednesday because it usually means the worst part of the week at work is over, however as I am currently on holiday I kind of wish time would slow down! We had another lovely day and tonight we are off to the Jamie Oliver restaurant... :-).

These beautiful nails are actually from the weekend but they lasted so well and I just could not bring myself to remove all the little gems. I got lots of compliments about these nails while we were in the city yesterday.

I started with a nice simple base of Essie Bikini So Teeny. The perfect periwinkle blue with just a very subtle hint of silver micro glitter.

Then using an orange stick (and lots of patience) I added each flower centre and flower petal individually. I wanted each nail to be different so I changed not only the position of each flower but also the colour.

These nails were a little labour of love but I was so pleased with the results and they looked lovely with my favourite navy dress when we went out for the evening.

Do you like this kind of nail art look or is it a little fussy for your tastes? It made such a nice change from my usual stamped manicures - I am glad I put in the extra effort on this one :-)
