while cooler weather may be approaching with the end of summer just around the corner, let’s not let go of it completely!
in this week’s toffey talk i am going to show you how to keep the sun shining by adding some lovely daisies to your nails.
so read away and be inspired. alternatively, throw the headphones in and watch the short 2 minute video tutorial.
what you will need
- stairway to heaven gel polish
- yellow submarine gel polish
- better left unsaid gel polish
- top coat
- base coat
- cotton buds
- alcohol wipes (in case you make a mistake)
- LED lamp
what you need to do
step 1 you’ll need something to draw your daisies on to, so apply your gel polish manicure. i’ve used better left unsaid and yellow submarine. don’t know how? our most watched video on how to apply your gel polish manicure will have you sorted.
step 2 apply the middle of the daisy on to your chosen nails. it’s totally up to you how many daisies you want to apply and to how many nails. if you’re not sure, just start with 2 nails on each hand. you can always add more. to do this, apply a small amount of yellow submarine gel polish to the end of a cotton bud and dab a small circle on your nail.
step 3 now we need to draw the petals of the daisies. apply a small amount of stairway to heaven gel polish to the end of a cotton bud and dab small circles around the yellow submarine circles you applied in step 2. important: the gel polish circles you apply will spread out slightly when you cure them in the led lamp in the next step. it is therefore important to leave small gaps in between each circle.
step 4 cure the nails you have applied the daisies to in the led lamp for 60 seconds.
step 5 apply a thin layer of top coat to the daisy nails.
step 6 cure the daisy nails in the led lamp for 90 seconds.
done and done
this is a really easy and wonderful gel polish design that you can try at home. if you don’t have the right colours, just innovate and use what you have.
