Flower Power vs Fried Eggs

This is my attempt at a design by Stacie over at Kawaii Nail Art, I tried it first last week using a pin, then a Kirby grip pulled apart bit it wasn’t quite working. I bought a white nail art pen from Claire’s for about £4 and that seemed to work better. I also used a cocktail stick, I’m right handed so was dreading trying to do my right hand with my left but you know what I think that hand turned out better!

I’ve had a couple of compliments at work so it’s all good. I’m on my second day wearing this design and it’s only flaking slightly on my index fingers. My nails are growing too!

This is an ugly picture! lol

I’m really getting into this nail art malarkey now. If you haven’t checked Stacie out then please do, she’s really good. Another favourite is Leanne over at Do Not Refreeze.

Not bad for a first attempt, some do look like fried eggs though!
