Black Flowers Hand Painted

Hello Sweeties!

Today my mum and aunt (yes, they are twins) are celebrating their birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I wish I could be there, but we will celebrate on the weekend. I wanted to do a special manicure anyway and so I came up with this hand painted flower design. I included a little picture tutorial below.
The background is the glitterbomb gradient manicure that I showed you yesterday. 
-With a fine nail art brush I painted on four lines like you would for a spider web.
-Then I outlined my nails and drew curved lines on each side of every straight line to connect two of them to a petal shape. 
-Now I painted tiny lines in the center of each petal and filled in the gaps between the petals.

-To finish this manicure I used a toothpick and picked out white and pink glitter hexes of essence - lovely, maybe and placed them in the center of each flower. 
-Last but not least I added a layer of Seche Vite to bring my manicure together and blur the lines a bit.

The black I used for this manicure is essence - the black cat. I used a drop of polish thinner to make it more liquid and easier to apply with the nail art brush, and mixed them well on a little plastic palette.

I am totally in love with these flowers. It took a little time to make them, but they are worth the effort.

I hope you like them too! If you give them a try, I'd love to see your manicure.
