She typically does an amazing job on her own nails, but whenever she drops by to visit she likes me to do them for her... and I love to! :)
This time around I showed her the new tutorial created by Missy over at Gnarly Gnails which I've been dying to try! She loved the look so I recreated it on her super long, super strong nails.
The tutorial is for Floral Grunge nails. And I followed it almost exactly. The only difference was I stamped the flowers on and filled them in after doing the stripes instead of creating decals. (If you check out Missy's tutorial you'll see what I'm talking about).
I used Finger Paints Paper Mache as my base. Then using striping tape I sponged on China Glaze Liquid Leather leaving space for the stamped roses. The roses were stamped using konad special black polish and RA-116. Then I used a small nail art brush and China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy to fill in the design. I topped it off with a coat of Out the Door Fast Drying Top Coat.
