Cynthia Steffe Floral Nail Art

It's time for another nail art! I know I didn't do any in January, but that's because I was away the whole month. Now I'm back and ready to present to you some new designs inspired by high-end fashion. I hope you like it!

So I was scrolling through a Gossip Girl Fashion blog and this Cynthia Steffe Floral dress caught my eye.  This dress was worn by the very stylish Blair Waldorf in the episode "The Ex-Files" on Season 2 of Gossip Girl. Are you surprised that it's another Blair Waldorf design? I mean almost all of my fashion-inspired nail art comes from the clothes and designs that she has worn on the show. I guess I just love her or should I say Eric Daman's pairing with pattern and texture. If you don't know who he is, he's the costume designer for Gossip Girl and Sex and the City.

There's no instructions for this nail art because all I did was try to replicate the pattern and flowers by hand. If you're going to try and replicate this nail art, wet your brush with nail polish remover to soften the edges and blend. It's exactly like watercolour, but instead of water, it's nail polish remover. If you're still looking for instructions, it's very much similar to this nail art but with different colours.

  Cynthia Steffe Floral Dress
  • White Nail Polish
  • Purple Nail Polish (in light, medium, and dark shade)
  • Green Nail Polish (in light and dark shade)
  • Yellow Nail Polish 
  • Gold Nail Polish
  • Tooth Pick
  • Fine Paint Brush
  • Nail Polish Remover
  • Palette or Plate (to place drops of polish)  
  • Top Coat
Tip: Any shade you don't have, mix the color with white on your palette/plate to create a lighter shade. 


Normally I don't post pictures of my design on my right hand just because I'm sure you know how it is. Since I'm not a lefty or an ambidextrous, I always expect my right hand's nail art to look super messed up or obviously not as nice as my left. But it turned out rather nice so I decided to post it up. I can still see that my right hand is missing a little bit more detail, but from afar, it looks about the same. Anyways here are the nail polishes that I used for this nail art. 


I have said this in my blog before, I am not partial to any brands so my polishes range from cheap $1.50 Sally Hansen polishes to super expensive $22 Dior nail polish and everything in between. Anyways, I hope you enjoy my nail art for this week! 

I also want to add that I love reading comments and feedback so I know some people actually like reading my post or enjoy seeing my nail art. If you pass by this blog, I would love to hear from you! If you have any suggestions on which pattern or design I should try and replicate on my nail, just leave a link in the comment below! 

Thanks for dropping by :)
