NOTD : Autumn Floral

Here it is, as promised, a new NOTD ! Finally !

Ok, so I realise it's Summer and everything, but I didn't have any intention of creating an Autumn-appropriate manicure when I first started this design last night !

I didn't really have anything in mind in particular when I decided it was time to change my nails, so I just went over to my polishes and picked out a few colours that I've been wanting to use in manicures for a while, and decided to put them all together onto the same design.

At the moment I seem to be really into unrealistic floral patterns at the moment. I know there was a time a while ago where everyone was doing relatively life-like florals on their nail designs, but I don't think I'm patient enough or competent enough at drawing/painting with polish to actually doing anything remotely realistic !

So the colours I used for this design were OPI Alpine White for the base, fo the flowers I used a dotting tool to paint them on with OPI Steady as she Rose, OPI Jade is the New Black and Barry M Bright Purple. I then drew on three little dots on each flower with my Models Own Wah Nails nail art pens in black and white.

I guess I wasn't really thinking about the current season when I chose the colours for this design, but all the same, I love it ! The flowers are so simple to do and I find it always looks really quite clean in the end !

Hope you enjoyed this post, and enjoy the your day !


  1. These colours go together great, and I love the simple flowers :)
