The kit includes tweezers, a mini nail file, Candy Floss (a pretty pastel pink polish) ,  Speedcoat Pro Topcoat, a couple of little mini pressed flower pots and all for £18.  Follow our step by step to get this gorgeous summer manicure…

Step 1 

Wipe your nails with a little nail polish remover to clean the surface and file down to size. Apply a base coat of your choice to protect the nail.

Step 2 

Apply two coats of Ciate Candy Floss nail polish and allow to dry. We’re glitter fiends here at Spindle Beauty so we decided to mix it up using various basecoats for the floral manicure. We really liked the effect of using a silver glitter polish as a base and Topshop Magpie works perfectly.

Step 3 

Apply 1 coat of the Speedcoat Pro Top Coat to nails and immediately  use the tweezer to place and gently press down whichever pressed flower you like.

Step 4

Apply another layer of Speedcoat Pro Topcoat to set the nails and  allow to dry.
