butter Flowers

Yes, this is another one of my crazy butter LONDON posts.  On Saturday I ended up purchasing 3 of my lemmings! Bossy Boots, Disco Biscuit and Cream Tea!!!!  So I couldn't wait to use them!
I found a tutorial on Pinterest that showed a new way of creating flowers and decided to base my design on this.
I started with butter LONDON Cream TeaCream Tea reminds me a lot Essie Marshmallow.  It is a very thin white that takes patience to apply.  It dries to a jelly finish.  I love the end result.  There is just something about these whites that I find very appealing! 
Here is 2 coats.  Its hard to see but there are some thin spots.



3 coats:





Lots of colors for this design!


Left to Right: Minger, Cheeky Chops, Blowing Raspberries, Bossy Boots, Macbeth and Cream Tea

I didn't take pictures of each step because there was a lot involved with the design.  I suggest watching the tutorial if you want to understand how I achieved the flowers.  Butter London dries fast so I had to move fast between dotting and spreading the dots.

  13. They look good, but you didn't let them dry long enough before you top coated them...When doing nail designs, you have to let them almost fully dry...and you might have used top coat that is either too thick, or was too thickly applied....
