A Double Shot of Flowers

I'm in the process of swatching Pretty Bitch's July collection and running a Nail Art Contest in the Pretty Bitch fan group in between my Bar studies. This quick macro is a snippet of my polish work that I wanted to share. 

The theme for tomorrow's nail art is floral so I wanted to give the girls a quickie demo of an easy nail art design that anyone of any level can complete. I painted over the swatch of Jaclyn's July limited edition I had on (currently unnamed) and grabbed a dotting tool. 

First, I put dots of Pheromone on my nail for the centers. Then I switched to a larger end and dotted 5 dots of Double Shot around each center. To add some sparkle I dabbed Fucking Yeah, Baby! into the centers. The combination is a really warm and comfy floral mani. 

I do have some tips from what I learned: 
  • Use a slightly smaller dot head than you think you will need  for the petals or your dots will blob like mine instead of looking like individual petals
  • Paint one petal on each flower first, then add a second to all, etc- This way each petal has some time to dry and and the petals don't run into each other
