Purple Flower Nails

I had high hopes for this design, but as always I really fail when it comes to doing little flicks with thin nail art brushes. They always end up to thick no matter how hard I try.

I started off by painting all nails in 2 coats of a very light grayish lilac shade as my background.

On all nails except the thumb and ring finger nail, I used a very thin nail art brush and painted 2 flicks coming from the one corner in a dark purple colour. I then added 2 more flicks in a lilac shade next to them. I finished off those nails by placing a rhinestone over the corner where all the flicks originated from.

On the remaining nails I used the same brush and dark purple shade to paint 3 round petals at the base of each nail.

I then used the lilac shade to fill in some little lines in the base of each petal that I had made. I then finished these nails off by placing 3 rhinestones to make the centre of the flower. I think I would have liked the overall design better if I had gone for the flower design on all nails instead of just the thumb and ring fingers.
