simple daisy nail art

Ciate Mini in Big Yellow Taxi
La Colors Energy Source

I couldn't resist popping on one of the new Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine nail polishes after I posted and swatched them yesterday! I settled on Guava which is a odd name for a blue polish but I'll roll with it. Barry m Gelly Hi Shine Nail Polish in Guava is a pretty summery lagoon blue with a slight murky green tone to it. I absolutely adore it, it reminds me of the summer and laying by the beach. I popped it on then decided to get a arty with my nail dotting tool's.

I decided on this really simple daisy design. All I did was use a large dotting tool and LA Colors Energy Source to create 3-4 little blobbed "flower" shapes all over the nail and then went in with Ciate Big Yellow taxi on a smaller nibbed dotting to create the centres. This is possibly one of the easiest nail art things I've ever attempted because it is literally all joined up dots. I was even able to do my left hand with relative ease! I picked by dotting tools up for less than a pound on ebay, while they did take a while to come they were only £1! You can't complain when something was that cheap including shipping. Surely they can't be making money on that!

Anyway, this is a great little nail art for someone who's advanced or a beginner. It's much more simple than it looks and the results are really effective and super cute! Perfect for this summery weather we are having in the UK at the moment!
