Longwood Garden

Hello Daaaahlings! I’m officially back from the US, but I’ve got a few more posts from there 😉 During the last week of my trip, I went to Longwood Gardens, a large botanical garden with an amazing flower collection. In preparation for the trip, I created one of my favorite flower designs–water lilies. It’s a very feminine design and looks complicated, but it’s actually super-easy to create.

Take your favorite base color (I’m using Queen of West Web-erly by OPI) and three nail art stripers (I’m using white, sliver, and taupe-gold) and let’s begin 🙂

Apply a base coat to protect your nails and let it dry. Then, apply your base color.

Next, use the white (or another opaque color) striper to create the lily petals.

Then, take the shimmery color (silver) and draw thin straight rays between the petals. Take the third striper color (gold) and draw short lines inside the petals.

Wait until the design dries completely, then apply a top coat, and you’re done!

Here are more pictures of the design with the beautiful flowers from Longwood Gardens XOXO
