Having pressed some Forget-Me-Nots last night, I couldnt wait to have a go today. Didnt have time to get the l&p out, so its just done with base & top coat.
Not the best work I ever did but, I've a feeling I'll be playing some more before the weekend is out!

They're lovely, Glo!

I bought some pink ones from NSI yesterday and have a lady coming around next week who wants them on her nails - hope they turn out as nice as yours. I think I'll be scouring the gardens now for some little flowers, bit cheaper than having to buy them all the time!

I lurvvvvvv em Glor they look really lovely and great for summer I love little special touches to the nails like that I reckon if you offered them to clients you would get loads wanting them done I certainly would!! What a lovely blue they are too. Did you apply a base coat and put them into it when it was still wet then apply top coat straight after? Well done you!! :green:

They're lovely, Dawn. I particularly like the tiny leaves - did you have to cut and shape them or did you find them that small? Next set I do on myself I'll be having a go at the flowers and leaves - so impressive!

the leaves are straight from the plant but they shrink a bit when you dry them.

Wow you guys are really clever. How do you get the flowers to stay flat on the nail considering a nail is a slightly rounded surface? Ants mentioned when he was putting lace on that he used a plastic wrap to hold them in position. Is that wot you do? Not sure wot plastic wrap is and do you remove it afterwards? Any clarification would be appreciated.

Lots of love
Carole xx

Carole you should find a good quality top coat holds them fine...the petals especially are so delicate they hold down easily onto base coat. i wondered if I would need to cover with acrylic but I found there is no need at all

Ok, I found some teeny tiny white flowers in my garden, so now I need to know how to dry them - HELP!!

Dawn, you mentioned Silica Gel, do you just need to store them in an airtight container with some silica gel in with them? If so, how long until they are ready to use?

Thanks
