Nails - grunge floral

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend so far? I had an evening to myself last night so spent it having a lovely bubble bath and cosying up in my onesie with a film, wine and my nail art pens!

I had tried this design out on paper [have since got some new nail wheels to practice on!] originally. I was after some sort of grungey watercolour floral design. It came out pretty well on paper so I decided to apply it to my nails last night.


I started off by using Models Own Black Magic for the base. I painted the floral design on using a fine paintbrush. I used a selection of colours, mainly Models Own Raspberry Crush and Beth's Blue. The green and pink were ones from my nail art pen collection.

I really like this's really pretty, and wasn't that hard to do :) Plus, as I'm a bit of a floral freak, it matches a lot of the clothes I wear!


  1. Oh these are cute! I bought some nail wraps from Primark that had a similar pattern to these - yours look so professional! x x
