Pink, Red and White Mini Dotted Flowers (52 Week Challenge)

The two challenge prompts for last week’s 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge were: red and pink, or skittles. I chose to create some pink, red and white mini dotted flowers.

My design is entirely inspired (copied!) from one done by Nail That Design.

I used all Nella Milano polishes for this design. The pink base is Pinkifield; the white flowers are made with Chantilly Cream; the red leaves are done with The Rubinator; and finally, the tiny dotted centres are Raven Wing.

My leaves and dots are a little sloppy. It was really hot yesterday when I painted these, and my polish was drying really quickly. Rather than take my time, replenishing the dabs of polish on my dotting mat more frequently, I tried to finish the job more hastily. The result is that my dots aren’t very even and some of the leaves aren’t really even leaf shaped!

I couldn’t fit in as many dots in the centre of my flowers as Nail That Design did. I don’t know how she did it in fairness. Despite that, and the poor leaves, the overall effect is what I was looking for and the manicure looks great.

Thanks Milena. Yours is such a lovely design that I had to copy it 😀 I meant to tag you on my Instagram post … I remember looking you up … but forgot, so I’ve just remedied that.
