Flower Power and tutorial

Hi Ladies
Just thought I'd share with you my tootsies!
Now you must feel priviledged as I never show my toes to anyone! 
But I decided it was time to brave the world and show them off, 
in celebration for this revelation I decided to paint them a nice lilac colour (Barry M Berry I/C to be precise) and top them off with some pinky flowers. 
I learnt this technique from a friend but I don't have to right tools to do as good a job as her, so please bear with me!
Step 1:

paint the nail with Barry M Berry I/C

Step 2:

Dot Pink "splodges" with a dotting tool (or the end of a make up brush) 
onto nail to create base for flower Barry M Raspberry was used for this

Step 3:

Dot lighter pink around the edges of the dots to create the "highlight" effect on the flower and the petals. 
I used Barry M Pale Pink for this

And there you go!

One set of perfectly (nearly) polished feet!



  1. These looks really pretty! I'm going to try this on my nail at some point - I have all the colours too :)

  2. Hi Sophie, When you do let me know and i will link you in my post.

  3. That is so cute! Thank you for stopping by my blog and sharing some photo tips :D
