Stripes and Floral Nail Art - We Will Miss You Set In Lacquer

Hi everyone! Today I have a special post with some nail art dedicated to a lovely friend, Kelly from Set in Lacquer. Kelly has recently decided to make a lifestyle change and will no longer be blogging. You can read her post here if you missed it. A few blogger friends and I wanted to get together and do some Set in Lacquer tribute manis to let her know how much we love her and her blog!

I had a look back through Kelly's nail art posts and just knew I had to do something floral. Kelly loves floral nail art and is amazing at coming up with lovely flower designs. I came across this one and remembered loving it when she posted. I decided it was the one I wanted to recreate.

I used different colours because I don't have the Milani polishes that Kelly used and also just because its fun to switch things up! 

I started out my mani with 2 coats of OPI 'Did You 'Ear About Van Gogh?' which is a great beige/nude creme polish with a fantastic formula. I love this polish for nail art. I then added the stripes using my Color Club Art Club liner in 'You're Golden'. These stripers are so practical for quick nail art and they come in loads of colours. 

I then added the daisy-like flowers at the base of my nails using acrylic paints, a fine detail brush and a dotting tool.

I really love how this nail art turned out and hope that Kelly will like it! I have so enjoyed following her blog and wish her all the best!
