Manicure Monday - Cats & Flowers Reverse Stamped Nails

Happy Manicure Monday everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend - it was so lovely here, I spent all weekend in my garden getting it all set up! (Thank goodness one hand survived the weekend, so I could still do my nails!)

Okay, I'm getting back in to the nail stamping game, because it is something I need to get better at! And, I'm drawing on my crazy cat lady vibes for this week's Spring nails! 

The #CBBxManiMonday group is keeping the May Flowers theme for the whole month, and I'm sad to see the month end because floral nails are my favourite!

The products that I used for this week's manicure are:
I used a nail stamper and a nail art brush for the reverse stamping as well.

For these nails, I started with a base coat and two coats of a light green polish for the base, and then I let this dry really well. Then for reverse stamping start with the black polish, and I picked up the stamped outline on the stamper. Then while the outline is on the stamper, using the nail art brush (or nail art polish), paint the colours on to the stamper, if you are layering (like I did with the pink), make sure paint in the order you want the colours to appear on the nails. Mine aren't the most precise, but I actually love all the colours together! 

And, I rarely reach for a matte top coat, but I'm really happy with the finish with this design! As always, make sure to check out Cosmetic Proof and Prairie Beauty Love to see their floral nails too!
