Bumble Bee & Dandelion Nails

I wanted to do a bumble bee nail look and then Aundrea on twitter asked me to do dandelions so I decided to do both! 

Both looks are so simple to do, if I can do them then anybody can.

Bumble bee:
First I painted the nail white so the yellow would stand out more. After the yellow coat was applied and dries I used a nail art brush and painted three black stripes across my nail. Then using the end of a tooth pick with I cut off to make the end more rounded I dipped it into some black and created two eyes. When that dried I did the exact same thing but used white instead. As always apply a base and top coat.

I applied a base coat and then a light blue vanrish. I used Sure Azure by Essence. I used my black nail art brush again to make the steam of the dandelions. Using a white nail are brush I then lightly painted small strokes to create the dandelion. On the two bare nails I did small strokes of white to create the effect of the dandelion flowing away in the wind.

Hope you enjoyed this,
