Flower Nail-Art Tutorial


Hello every one! For this blog post I am going to show you how to make this beautiful Flower nail-art.
You are going to need:
1. A very light nail polish with a skin colour or very light pink for the base of your french manicure.
2. Black nail polish
3.White nail polish
4. A nail polish in a colour of your choice for the flower
5. Top coat (optional)
6. And a thin and long brush for nail-art (similar to these ones)

The first thing that you want to do is to apply your base colour.
You want to apply two coats of this and wait for it to dry completely.
The next thing is to make your french manicure. If you are not confident in your skills you can use stencils for this part. It makes everything a lot easier but if you have done this before you can try and draw the line yourself. What I do is that i slide the brush along the nail and try to keep the line as straight as I can. Don't worry if it doesn't look good the first time... practise makes perfect.

Then comes the tricky part where you have to draw the petals of your flower. You want to draw four little petals using the thin brush and  don't worry if they don't look perfect because we are going to outline them later and fix everything that we've messed up.
I would recommend that you use a more pigmented colour for this (unlike I did) because you want it to be visible on the black.
Next we are going to outline our flower. You can use the same brush just clean it with some nail polish remover and you are good to go. You want to outline your flowers very carefully because this is how your flower is going to look at the end so take your time with this step. Next you want to make a little dot in the centre of the flower. For this step you can use a dotting tool if you have or a tooth pick.
The last part id my favourite because you get to decorate the flower as you like. For mine I put some little lines in each petal coming from the centre and I put some small white dots. To make the nail design look a little bit more finished I added some line coming out of the flower with the black and put some dots here and there. You can make yours like mine or you can make different designs or get really creative and switch it up. 

If you try this out yourself I will be very happy to see your attempts. You can tag me on your photos on any social media and I will be looking through your creations. 

XoXo Moni :)

Eleven Things | Liebster Award

I didn't even know what a Liebster award is but apparently I was nominated by Maria (check her blog here) (Thank you very much for nominating me) and this is what I am going to do today.
So basically a Liebster award is an award that bloggers give to other fellow bloggers and the main reason is to promote new bloggers who are just starting out and are not that big in the blogging world.So long story short - you get nominated and you have to answer 11 questions that the person who nominated you had asked and then you nominate 11 other bloggers, who have under 200 followers and you ask then 11 random questions and then they all do the same.
These are the questions that Maria asked:

 1. Favorite YouTuber?
Ohh thats a hard one...I have so many...If I have to choose only one I would choose Hannah Maggs. If you haven't seen her chanel please do. Hannah and her husband Steff make the most amazing vlogs - the filmig, the editing... it's all amazing (check their channel here)
2. What is your zodiac sign?

3. What is/are your favorite TV show?
F.R.I.E.N.D.S all the way. I have watched every single episode of the show a million times and I still laugh on every single one of them.

I really like Maybelline mainly because of their nail poolishes but I also like Rimmel and Bourjois

5. What is your favorite movie?
A favourite movie (except for Harry Potter because that's obvious) of mine is My sister's keeper. If you haven't seen it you just have to. It's so emotional that I cry everytime I see it.

A nude.. :)

7. Summer or winter?
Oh god I like both.. I will say winter only because Christmas is in December :D

I love England and my dream is to live there someday. Strange as it may sound I like the weather. I also love the accent and the buildings and just everything!
