Field of Flowers + My 1st Tutorial!

Today I tried out one of Emily's Nail Files designs. I have at least three of her designs saved in my inspiration file, just waiting for me. I'll post another within the next couple weeks. Her designs are really amazing, so please check out her blog if it's new to you!

This design is not particularly difficult to create but I had so much fun doing it that I went back and made a tutorial for it!

This is only my first tutorial and I'm still figuring out the format I want to use and whether or not I should make a video or GIF. Let me know what you'd like and don't be afraid to request any tutorials for my past designs.

For anyone interested, here are the polishes I used on each finger...

Index- China Glaze Sunset Sail as the base, CCUK Apricot Sun on the tip, and Essence What Do U Think? as the lines.
Middle- Zoya Marley as the base, Essence No More Drama on the tip, and Sally Girl Your Majesty as the lines.
Ring- China Glaze Sea Spray as the base, Zoya Breezi on the tip, and China Glaze First Mate as the lines.
Pinky- China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint as the base, Sally Hansen Green with Envy as the tips, and China Glaze Starboard as the lines.
For all the flowers the white petals were made using Wet n' Wild White French Creme and the yellow dot is Butterfly Jungle 244.
