PAINT PALETTE NAILS

I fancied doing something a bit different on my nails this week, so I created this paint palette look inspired by Meg’s pretty floral nails that I LOVED recreating. 

They were really easy to do, I promise. I started by using an opaque white nail polish as a base to make all the other colours stand out. Barry M Matt White is the best I’ve tried and it’s super cheap! 

I then used a really easy ‘splodge’ technique starting with the yellow. I literally just used a tiny amount of polish on the brush and gently brushed an uneven stroke on the nail. Leaving time to dry in between each colour I followed with the turquoise, pink, light green and then orange. 

I finished with plenty of Seche Vite top coat to seal it and give a pretty shine. I think it’s really fun and bright for Summer and I’m so happy with the outcome.

What do you think? Will you be giving it a try? Tweet me a photo @lilypebbles if you do!

    This is so cute! I loved Meg’s floral nails and Bubz from Bubzbeauty recently posted a video with floral nail art too.
    Now I’m tempted to do some nail art as well!

    They look amazing! But I am a little bit scared to try another bourjois nail polish. I bought one 2 months ago and used it only 3 times and the color changed and it started to get really thick and nasty.
