Bright Flowers for Chalkboard Nails Nail Art Contest

Hi everyone!  Today's post is a special one.  Sarah from Chalkboard Nails is hosting a nail art contest, which is exciting in itself, but even more exciting...the theme of the contest is: THE DOTTING TOOL.  I love my dotting tools.  Even though I own nail art brushes, I end up using my dotting tools 95% of the time.  Needless to say, I was way excited to enter this contest! =)  Here's what I came up with...




Base coat: Cult Nails Get It On
Base color: China Glaze Liquid Leather
Flowers: China Glaze White On White, China Glaze Aquadelic, China Glaze Make Some Noise, China Glaze Electric Pineapple, Julep Hayden, OPI Strawberry Margarita
Leaves (dots): China Glaze Gaga For Green
Top coat: Cult Nails Wicked Fast

In order to make the colors really pop against the black background, I did the entire design in white first, and then went back over it with the colors.  It looked really cool in black and white and inspired me to try some B&W designs soon!

Head over to Chalkboard Nails and look at all of the awesome contest entries!  If you're interested in entering, you have until March 5 to submit your design!  And thanks to Sarah for hosting a contest that is so accessible to everyone! =)
