Graphic Floral Nails - OPI Euro Centrale Nail Art

Hey everyone!

When I saw this awesome floral nail art by Anutka over at Wacky Laki, I just had to recreate it. And seeing as tonight is my bridal shower, I thought this would make a great mani for such an occasion!

To get this look, I started with a base of OPI My Vampire is Buff, which is still one of my top favourite polishes released this year. It's the absolute perfect creamy neutral base for nail art when you don't want to use a stark white.

To create the flowers, I used a torn off piece of makeup sponge and just roughly sponged on the shape of the flowers using OPI Can't Find My Czechbook and OPI Eurso Euro. Then I used a striper brush and black polish to create the outlines of the flowers. I also added a few sparse dots in the centre of each flower. I topped it all off with a coat of my beloved Seche Vite.

Even though I've done a floral design using the Euro Centrale blue shades over MVIB already (which can be seen here and a tutorial here), I simply had to use the blues again because the dress I'm wearing to my shower features a lot of blues. Plus, the heels I'm wearing are a beautiful nude so this manicure couldn't be more perfect!

I'm really in love with this design - it's so bold and graphic. I'm definitely going to have to try it again with some other colours!

Thanks for stopping by!
