Nail DIY

Hello readers! 
I just finished my first final exam, it's such an weird idea that after 6 years I'll never have a Dutch lesson again in my life. (if I pass)
But I managed to find the time to do a little experiment. 
I found these amazing nails on Maegans blog. And I thought, hey, I can do that too.
So here is how I did it.

I found these flowers in the Dutch Elle May 2012. And they have just the amount of details I was looking for. (yes I discovered instagram, it's actually quite fun! all your pictures look so nice.)

Start off with a base coat (KOH optimistic)

Cut the flowers the shapes of your nails.

Apply a second layer of nail polish, let it dry a little bit and stick on the flowers. (this was really hard... I might be doing something wrong...)

Apply some glitters (Etos effect nails, pink and silver)

And a lot of topcoat to make it water-proof (Herome protecting topcoat)

Has anyone of you ever done something like this before? Tell me! I am really curious (:
Now I am back to studying, mathematics and biology this time...
