Instructions
1. Start with your base color already applied. We recommend a shimmery gold, although you can use any shade you fancy.
2. Add some clear nail polish to your palette. Trim the corner off a chamomile tea bag, and gently decant some of the leaves next to the clear polish.
3. Mix the tea leaves with the clear nail polish using a dowel.
4. Apply the tea leaf and nail polish mixture over your entire nail, using a flat brush.
5. Allow time to try.
6. Put some super-tiny dried flowers on your palette using a pair of tweezers.
7. Dip the flowers into the clear nail polish, then apply to your nail with the tweezers.
8. Apply clear top coat to seal everything in place, plus to boost the shine.
