Hiya ,
I was on a japenese web site selling nail art products, and noticed that they sold ready made small flowers to use on the nails and very tiny silk flowers to embed in designs.
Just wondered if anyone knew of companys selling similar products here in the uk?

These are also advertised in Professional Nails mag this month.
It says that they are £4.99 for a pack of 20 through Nsi.... I hope this helps?

have you tried silica gel ?
the crystals help keep the true colour of the flowers and leaves.

My friend from work is wearing them on her nails and they look lovely. Really effective.

I remeber posting about dried flowers in acrylic ages ago so you could do a search I think ant buckley replied about the dried flowers!!! Ive since seen them when I went to olympia they had lots of diferent colours. I'm really sorry but I cant remember the make now :rolleyes: silly me. There are definately companies that sell them in the uk though!!

If you scroll back up this thread Debsi75 has said that NSI do them, £4.99 for 20.
This is the only company I know of that does them.
Anyone else?

I've just chopped the heads of my flowers in the garden lol...tiny pink and white ones...no idea what they are called lol...took some really tiny leaves off too to try out in designs...can't wait to get going, they are pressed in a book as we speak! Can't wait to get to the garden centre to hunt down any other poor little specimens to try lol

Loved this idea and there was a picture in prof nails to copy. I rushed outside yesterday, picked some forget-me-nots, pressed them for two hours and then couldn't wait any longer! Most of them were a bit too big for my nails but I used one that had creased a little and was a bit smaller. Glued on to a nail that already had a gel overlay, a little bit of nail art, two coats of gel later and hey presto :D !!!

I think it looks great even though my specimen was a pretty rubbish one! Shall be checking out the NSI ones real soon I think!

Hi

I have the NSI flower on my nails at the mo. Pink & White L&P with blue flower glued on them then a clear layer of L&P. Must admit I've had quite a few nice comments about them. Also did my sisters with a pink flower (which I took a digi pic of). I'll try and post a picture over the weekend.

So, these flowers ... do you have to wait for them to dry out or do you just press them between heavy objects?.
I would love to have a go but dont really know where to start.

Hello. I cut forget me not flowers and put them (up side down :) ) into the book. ( I've tried iron once - what an idea I had :rolleyes: - better not to try ...) Too heavy objects might damage it I guess - they are very delicate. Book is the best as it can absorb some "water" from the flowers. After one day ( they are really flat than) I open the book to let them dry completely, after that I gently move them - almost all are good for usage. Greetings:)
