Flower Nail Art tutorial

So I know that summer is coming to an end, but I just had to use some of my bright Bondi colors to create a floral nail art mani. I decided to take pictures throughout the process so I could share with you how I got this look.

The colors I used for this mani are: Bondi "Limelight", "Fuschia-istic", "Brick Road", and Essie "Tangerine."
To start this look, paint each of your nails a base color that you desire. I made my ring finger my accent nail, do did that a different color. I decided that these base colors would also be the center of my flowers.

Next, using a dotting tool, or a bobby pin tip, paint five small dots in a circle pattern creating the petals for your flowers.

Using your dotting tool, add dots to the center area of your flowers. I used Limelight on my accent nails and Brick Road on my other nails.

To finish it off, I used a toothpick and added black lines as stems.

You can purchase Bondi polishes HERE . There is even an option to choose a monthly subscription box. I highly recommend Bondi polishes. They are vibrant, smooth, and best of all their customer service is top notch.
EDIT: While I do enjoy the polishes themselves, and they are of wonderful quality, I am recommending at this time that you be careful of any purchases from this company. They have a habit of lying to customers about shipments, bouncing refund echecks or not refunding people as promised, and outright poor customer relations by the business owner.
SECOND EDIT: After the audacity of the owner and CEO of Bondi to rename the fall/winter line (you know the line he ALREADY had in his possession) with insulting names such as "It's Only Polish" after robbing people of their refunds, I am not in any way shape or form endorsing their merchandise. I am actually going to inform you to STAY FAR AWAY from that company. Use another set of colors to create this mani! I am even considering removing this blog post and replacing the whole thing. *sigh* So disappointed!

These polishes were not provided to me for review or swatching by the company. I purchased these polishes and they are part of my personal stash.


  1. This is so pretty. I hope to get my spirit back soon to start doing my nails again. David loved for me to do them. <3

    1. It will come back when it's time. *hugs* I miss seeing your manis though! You're still in my thoughts and prayers!

  2. I love how you told us to use a bobby pin... I never thought of that and wondered how to do simple things like dots without having to buy expensive tools... Thanks for the info and I love Bondi polishes too!
