Manic(ure) Monday: Daisy

Even though the smell is not worldshaking I really like the design of the Daisy Marc Jacobs perfume bottle. I've seen so many "Daisy" inspired items, from jewellery to cookies, but how could I not think of a Daisy nail art before? With a little inspiration, which I found on Instagram, I just created this manicure:






What I used:
Essie 1 Blanc
p2 Sweet Darling
Essence Quick Dry top coat

As you can see I started off with a layer of clear nail polish. Then I dabbed the flowers on my nails with the help of a nail art stick from Essence. I would recommend sticking to two colours and painting two sorts of flowers with them (like I did on my thumb and middle finger). Another colour combination that would look gorgeous is black and white but it will depend on how eye-catching you want your manicure to be. What I like about this colour combination is that you only see the flowers at second sight. Also I think the fact that the base coat isn't another colour but just a clear nail polish makes this manicure really grown up and yet playful and nifty. Oh and don't worry, painting dots with the nail art stick is really easy but most likely you'll need an assistant to paint your right hand.
Have you been experimenting with a nail art stick or with a flower manicure?

  6. Really cute design for your nails! I'm with you. I tried Marc Jacobs honey fragrance over the holidays and wasn't thrilled about it. Love his packaging, but not so much his formulas. I liked his very first perfume. It was delightful.
