NOTD: Mother's Day

I hope you all had a lovely Mother's Day. I spent mine at Dobbies testing out my new camera and eating cake with my family. A great day was had by all.

In celebration of the occasion, I painted a very feminine design on my nails which I am actually pretty pleased with.

For this look I didn't use a base coat, but instead started off with my matte topcoat from Essie. Sometimes I'll wear just this topcoat which I talked about in my last nail-related post.

After the base/topcoat I used some striping tape to create a smooth edge for the pearl white polish and then applied the white balls (part of a gift set)  - like a caviar manicure. Next I used my dotting tool to apply Miss Sporty Clubbing Colours Polish in Popcorn for the centre of the flower, followed by using a small paintbrush to create the petals using Barry M Speedy Quick Dry in Kiss Me Quick.

It was surprisingly easy and didn't take me that long to do at all, probably because I didn't need to wait for two or three coats of a base colour to dry before adding detail. I may try this technique again in future designs.

What did you get up to for Mother's Day and what do you think of bare nail art designs?
