Purple Floral Nail Art Featuring Pretty & Polished Wax On Top Coat!

Hey everybody! Today I have some floral nail art topped with a wax effect top coat to share!

I'm realizing that I have a bunch of midterms and lab write-ups to do in the next little while and it's stressing me out! I love those weeks of just lectures and labs; they actually feel manageable haha. The only thing that will make me feel better is studying and working on my labs so I'll try to do that at a time that isn't last minute for once :P.

Anyways! Onto the nails!

For this look I started off with two coats of OPI Do You Have This Colour In Stock-holm? over a coat of Orly Bonder. After that had dried, I went in with my Winstonia Kolinsky Sable Brush in #0000 and Essie Truth or Flare for the flower petals. Next, I went in with the same brush and OPI I Just Can't Cope-acabana for the flower centres.

After a few minutes I sprayed my nails with a coat of hairspray and allowed it to dry. I do this because it's a way to put a layer of clear material over your nail design without the use of a brush (ie. without the potential to smudge your design). I then applied one coat of my regular top coat (Essie Good to Go) followed by a coat of Pretty & Polished Wax On Top Coat!

I have been wanting a wax-effect top coat for a long time so I'm so happy to finally have one! I can't wait to try it over a watercolour design because I think that would look awesome!

What do you guys think of this design, base colour or wax-effect top coats? I'd love to know!

I actually ended up filming myself while doing these nails so I have a little tutorial to share from my Instagram! Would you guys like to see more short video tutorials embedded in my posts like this? I think I'll start filming tutorials every time I paint my nails so I could easily do so!
