Hello there! Here is my first attempt at putting dried flowers on my nails. The color is China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise, which is absolutely gorgeous. It's a neon turquoise with some pearly shimmer. Without topcoat, it has a satin finish. I used one coat of Seche Vite on all nails except my thumbs, on which I used about three coats to smooth out the roughness from the flowers. I got the dried flowers from Born Pretty Store, and have seen some at Sally Beauty Supply as well. I put a drop of topcoat on each thumb, picked up the flowers with tweezers and secured them to my nails. I pressed down gently, and then applied a few layers of Seche Vite to smooth things out.
Oooh, and the bonus foot! My toesies are wearing OPI's Flashbulb Fuchsia. And excuse the chip on my index finger, plznthx.

I really love this manicure, and it was very easy to do. I am a beginner at nail art, and I think this turned out great.
