I started off with two coats of China Glaze Light as air and Ulta3 spring shower on alternating nails. Taking my Glossyblossom nail art striper, I applied the white stripes. I then chose to use the blue and purple dried flowers I received and coordinated it with some rhinestones.
To stick the flowers onto my nail, I simply dabbed a little clear polish onto the end of my dotting tool to pick the flower up. I then dabbed a little more of the polish onto the back of the flower before pressing it down onto my nail, making sure that the edges stuck down. After adding the rhinestones in the same method, I sealed my manicure with a top coat.
I can't comment on the wear of the dried flowers as my mani never dried, even after 3hrs. It was completely destroyed in my shower, unfortunately :( I'm not sure if it was the flowers which slowed the drying time down as I've used these polishes before with the same top coat and had no issues. I'll have to try this again as I quite liked the end result.

I really did enjoy using the dried flowers and am itching to use the rest of them :P Have you used them before? If so, how was your experience with them?
Thanks for reading :)
