French Poppies Tutorial !

Hello!
Why is the weekend always so short ?? I hate that :P
I have another tutorial prepared for you today! Wait a minute ... 2 tutorials in a row?! Whoa! Now everybody who requested tutorials should be happy :D Let's see what we need for this manicure:
A dotting tool, bobby pin or tooth pick and one of this wider Nail Art brushes.If you don't have such a brush, I bet you could use the brush from the polish, since the flower we're doing is big and doesn't have to be perfect.
Let's start with the step-by-step tutorial!
1.) Apply the base of your french, a nude or clear polish, or nothing at all. Just do it, how you prefer it. I used 2 coats of O.P.I. Nail Envy.
2.) Do the french tip with a white polish. If you don't know how to do this step, I'm sure you find some tutorials on Youtube on how to do a french mani ;) I made mine a little bit to thick, but we cover up more than a half of it, so it doesn't have to be perfect! :D
3.) Now take the wide brush and a red polish and do the first petal of the flower. I like to start with the middle one, but you can also start at the side. Do it a bit diagonal and messy! The petal doesn't have to be perfectly round or with straight lines!
You get the hang of it after a few times ;)
4.) Now do the other 2 petals on the sides. To create the petal I kinda dab the brush onto the nail. The wider your brush the bigger the petals!
5.) After doing the same thing one more time, the red blobs start to look like a flower right? :D
6.) The red I used wasn't very opaque so I added another coat of red polish.
7.) Now add a green blob at the center of the flower, using the brush of the polish or a dotting tool.
8.) Add some random brown spots with a dotting tool ...
9.) ... and some black dots.
10.) As always, finish off the design with one coat of TC and you're done! ;)

Actually you could skip step 7 & 8 and just add the black dots, it would have the same effect. :P 
You can do this as an accent nail or as a full mani, like I did: 

Tomorrow I have something exciting to show you! Well, at least it's exciting for me :D 
Thanks for reading and have a good night! :*
