Dried Flower Nails

Charlies Nail Art Review 

Well lovely readers this is my last review for April from Charlies Nail Art. I have been itching to do this review, don't even know why I left it till last!! I have never heard of using dried flowers for nail art. Have you? Well I was sent these beautiful orange flowers.



The flowers I was sent come in 9 different colours for 75p you can find them here, there are also another set of flowers in 7 colours for the same price, here.
For these I painted my nails an ivory colour and stamped delicate writing with a grey polish. I applied the flowers once I'd top coated,  working on one nail at a time and gently pressing each flower to lay flat on my nails.




How gorgeous does this look! The dried flowers are amazingly pretty and something I would definitely use again. Just imagine how pretty multi coloured flowers would look, just like a pretty summer flower bed :)
FacebookTwitter and Instagram is where you can follow Charlies Nail Art and keep updated with a the nail items.
Great customer service, fast delivery and a great range of products to choose from.
Take a look...till next time stay safe and much love...
*update* I was asked if you could topcoat these flowers, so I did a quick test on my cindy hand. Yes you can topcoat, however it does seem to make some petals look thinner. Saying that though it still looks pretty and will protect the dried flowers, making your mani last longer.

  4. This is so pretty! Can you topcoat after applying the flowers or will that ruin them? I could imagine me scraping them off as I went about my day with out topcoat.
