Mani Monday – Flowers

Hello to another Mani Monday post! This is a really simple bit of nail art where you can play around with the colours to create a whole host of different looks.

For my base colour on all but one of my nails I used Essie’s Meet Me at Sunset, a vibrant, deep orangey red that looks amazing on the hands or feet – I would love a lipstick in this shade!

On the nail with no colour, I used a very fine nail art brush (I got mine in an ebay set) to paint a bright yellow half-moon shape above my cuticles. I used Ciate’s Big Yellow Taxi and needed two layers.

I then used the same nail brush (after giving it a quick clean) to paint on petals using the Essie shade.

I sealed the look with my Calvin Klein Splendid Glaze top coat et voila! A fun, summery look that I think anyone could do. x

About hannahhotcakes

My name is Hannah. I live near Bath in a lovely village in the Cotswolds with my husband Ian, the love of my life for the past 10 years, in our dream cottage. I have landed my dream job as a primary school teacher and I can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing. I am a self-confessed foodie and I love to cook, bake, and eat out as much as possible. Here are some things I love: My friends and family, travelling, fresh flowers, good books, having breakfast on my balcony, horror films, Christmas, tea, Las Vegas, lie-ins, red wine, Liverpool FC, music, sausage dogs, Spain, rare steak, fashion, cheese, American TV series and camping. And here are my pet hates: People dressed as animals, whistling, being rushed, being made to wait, girls who act stupid to impress a man, spiders, sunburn and rocket (it comes with EVERYTHING!)
