Daisy Nails


I am an avid follower of Vic's blog at www.hashtaggollygosh.com and she recently posted about her camo and daisy nails. Needless to say I saw them and fell in love! I wanted to recreate them entirely, however I'm so snowed under with MA work right now, that I don't really have much time to dedicate to blogging/YouTube and beauty or fashion stuff generally, which is making me a bit sad to be honest. So I had blue nail polish on from the weekend and decided to put daisy's on top of that to save some time. All I did was apply more of Barry M's Cobalt Blue to the tips of my nails where I had nail wear, then added some daisy's using a dotting tool and white and yellow polishes, both by Rimmel, then the Barry M top and base coat. You could also use a kirby grip or a toothpick and any polishes of your choice. I'm happy with the results and I can only improve on my nail art as I'm still an amateur!

Would you rock daisy nails for summer? I can see me putting daisy's on coral polish for a boho look in the summer. Would be pretty for festival season! (Not that I can go to any this year, annoyingly!) Also, please let me know what you think of the new blog layout!

    1. Thanks Jade!! Definitely give them a whirl, looking at my nails is making me smile since I put them on. So cute! I really love the contrast of the daisies with the blue, but I feel like I need to give coral a whirl too. I think this nail art will feature on my nails a fair bit throughout this summer :)

  4. Beautiful nails. How long did they take?
    I wish I could grow mine long enough to paint on flowers!

    1. I swear they took next to now time as I already had the blue polish on from a few days before. I just placed dots around the nail at random and that's it. It could work on shorter nails too. Mine aren't that long to compare with others!
