Where Did All The Flowers Go?

...They're on my nails! *yay* :-D

You already know this nailart from my last OotD photos, but I wanted to do an extra post on it to show you a more detailed pic. 
Actually, I planned to do a tutorial showing you in which order to apply the polishes, which brush & dotting tool I used, etc. 
But then it happened...*tension is rising* camera broke! It suddenly showed "card error" & from then on I couldn't take pictures anymore :-( 
My memory card is integrated in the camera, so I don't know if it's possible to repair it without costing a fortune. It's only 2 1/2 years so I didn't expect any issues, yet & I really need my cam! 
Hopefully, tomorrow I'll know more. At the worst, I need to buy a new cam. Geez, this is so sucky, first my modem, now my cam - as if I had a cash cow...

So all I can show you at the moment is a picture of my floral nailart:

I used one coat of Illamasqua "Boosh" as a base. It's important to use a polish that only needs one or two coats so that it dries quickly. If you don't wait until the base polish is dry, you'll mess up the design.
Then I used a fine nailart brush to apply small strokes of Orly "Pixy Stix", Illamasqua "Jo'Mina" & Orly "Gumdrop" that formed the flowers. The last step was to apply small dots of Misa "Happy Happy"as the center of the flowers & to highlight the design.
It took me about an hour to do this design, it's the most complicated nailart I did to date.


  1. wow das sieht ja super aus :)

  2. sooooooo cool!

  4. So pretty. Now you have me playing with my polishes :)

  5. Kurz und bündig, das Design gefällt mir richtig gut!
    Ich bin ansich nicht sonderlich scharf darauf aufwändige Nailart zu pinseln, aber die Farben der Blümchen auf dunkler Base sieht klasse aus und leicht verspielt. :)

  6. Die Naegel sehen super aus und vergiss das, was ich dir eben geschrieben habe. Wenn die Karte intrigiert ist, geht das logischweise nicht.Ich weiss aber,warum die Digi Cam nicht weg darf-sollte mal irgendwann meine Grosse kaputt gehen . Eine
    Cash Cow haette ich auch gerne...

  10. Your nail art is seriously so beautiful. You really should consider going into makeup/nail business. You would make a FORTUNE. I wish I had your skills! I can barely paint my nails the regular way. Lol.

  11. So sorry to hear about your camera! Those nails are super cute. I know you already won the Stylish Blogger award, but I decided to pass it on to you again. Haha!

  14. Das Nail Design sieht wunderschön aus ,unglaublich wie genau du auf "so wenig" Platz arbeiten kannst ,perfekt!

    LG :)

  15. Es macht immer so viel Spass hier reinzuschauen, Du hast immer etwas kreatives und hübsches zu zeigen. Bist Du Rechts- oder Linkshänderin? Wie bekommst Du das SO gut hin? Wahnsinn! Ich kann nicjt mal einfachen Lack auftragen :( Ehrlich gesagt habe ich auch nicht die Nägel dazu *seufz*

    Was Deinen Kommentar angeht, ja die Kater schleichen sich in fast jedes Bild rein! :) Na ja und meine Stirn is' halt 'n bisschen hoch lol! Meine Figur war mal besser, ich arbeite noch daran....und dieser Rock war der absolute Killer....supereng....konnte gar nicht aus dem Auto raus (oder rein) *gg*

  16. Pretty! Perfect for Spring!

  17. Sehr schön. Wenn ich das richtig verstanden habe, ist das also Freihand gemalt; das ist der Wahnsinn!
    Da hätte ich gar nicht das ruhige Händchen dafür, ich faile immer schon beim Stampen.
    Danke für das schöne Bild und ich hoffe, dass Deine Cam repariert werden kann.
    Liebe Grüße.
