Nail Art Tutorial: My Vaseline Road Trip Summer Nails

Happy Monday everyone!  It's back to work after a week of Road Trip and fun times with new friends!  I did my nails prior to leaving for the trip, I wanted a fun looking summery nails!  I know summer's almost over, but my nails can still enjoy the colorful shades of summer anytime of the year!

As inspired by the Road Trip, random colors were used to uplift anybody's mood!

Step 1:
Apply 2 coats of ELF Nude polish.  Let dry.  Sorry for the dirty pointer fingernail, the indelible ink is still there! LOL

Step 2:
Using your choice of colored polishes...

Apply them French tipped style

Step 3:
Apply a coat of clear polish.  While wet,  use Prettynails' 2 way nail art pen in white to create 5 dots as flower petals. 

Dots created on wet polish will make it blend in to the clear polish thus making the dots bigger and easier to control.

Step 4:
While the dots are still wet, use a needle to sharpen the edge of the dot to create better looking petals.

You can add additional dots on other areas.
Your choice!

Step 5:
Use L.A Colors Art Deco in silver to create flower bud

Step 6:
Apply your choice of Top Coat to protect your nail art.

Voila!  Cheerful looking nails ready for summer and the rest of the season!

Dearest Flair Candy liked it that's why she took a shot of this! :) Thanks Hannah girl!

This nail art survived a week of adventure.  By the way, the winners for the Php1,000 worth of Vaseline gift packs will be announced tonight!  Thanks again for reading my adventures and joining the contest!
