Nails: Easy Daisy Manicure

Stayed home last Sunday and decided to try out this easy DIY daisy manicure I read on Nouvelle Daily..

It was really simple, I did not have a dotting tool to create the petals so I just used a bobby pin and the following polishes:

A short history on the polishes above... 
Eastern Light was a limited edition last year but will be repromoted in the upcoming Summer 2014 makeup line
Flamme Rose is a very old, discontinued colour which I found whilst inspecting drawers at Melbourne Tullamarine Airport's dutyfree counter
Mimosa was a colour I dismissed in May 2011 (this was the year I started getting serious about Chanel polishes) and then regretted and recently bought new on eBay for double the price
Gold Fingers I bought over the phone without even swatching, it was created for the reopening of the Chanel boutique in Las Vegas in 2012

I have no complains about Chanel polishes, even the older formula is a dream to work with. There is only one in my collection which reviewers have mentioned is streaky and should be applied thinly, and that is Mimosa. I haven't tested a full manicure on it so I can't say but as dots it dried without issues.

I did as instructed, one coat of sheer polish; Flamme Rose, and dotted with Eastern Light..

I then dotted the middle with a yellow polish; Mimosa, and after it dried I topped it with Gold Fingers for some sparkle.

After the dots dried, I sealed it with Seche Vite top coat. Super easy! It didn't take too long to do this and I even did the same set for my sister (below).

I really like this and would definitely try it again with different colours. I'm off to Google for more of these easy DIY nail designs!


  1. What a fresh and fun idea for a manicure! It came out really pretty! You must be smiling every time you look down at your nails now :)

    1. Hi Rowena! Perfect for spring, me thinks :D Thank you for dropping by (:

  2. It is gorgeously done :-) I rarely wear nail polishes because I do housework but I must try this method one day. But I think I will just get lazy and do it at a manicurist. LOL.


    1. Hello Victoria! Thank you for the compliment, it was really quite simple. And yes, like you mentioned housework does make nails chip faster.. my manicure used to only last 2-3 days (doing light housework) but these days I have been using Seche Vite top coat, it is so good! My manicure can last up to a week if I am really careful. Have a good week ahead and thank you for reading (:
