Dry Flower Twill Nail Art

I'm enjoying my first Essie polish from The Twill of It Fall 2013 collection. This baby I picked up at Trade Secrets Canada while on vacation. I'm pairing it with some gorgeous dried flowers from BornPrettyStore for a simple yet artistic look.


First let's talk about the Essie polish: It's green yet purple, one of those duo maybe even multichrome polishes that reflect light so that it appears a different color depending on the angle the light hits it. This polish applied smoothly, evenly and was opaque in two coats. 



How to apply dried flowers in nail art:
  1. I applied the first coat of the nail polish and allowed this to dry fully.
  2. Go ahead and cut your dried flowers into segments that will fit into your design. My nails are pretty small so I had to use this step. Some individual flowers maybe small enough to use on their own without trimming. These flowers are from BornPrettyStore. Use my coupon code BBEEJ61 for a 10% discount.
  3. Apply your second coat of polish and then a top coat to seal in your polish. Allow to dry fully.
  4. Apply a thin coat of top coat again on one nail only and then immediately place your dried flowers into position. 
  5. Tap down using a tweezer the dried flower so that it is flat against the nail bed. 
  6. Repeat on the rest of the nails and seal in the design with a top coat.
