Floral Nail Art Tutorial

It's springtime (ignoring the fact the weather doesn't want to realize that haha) and floral prints are all over the place. It's not spring in Polishland without some floral nail art! So, today I have a short tutorial of how to make some flowers using a dotting tool and a striping brush.

What I love about this is you can use any colors to make as many flowers, of any sizes! ANDDD it's super easy to do :] Below I outline the steps in the picture:

Supplies: Striping brush, dotting tool, top coat, a green (SquareHue Flower Power, a white (Sinful Colors Snow Me White), a lighter color (Zoya Rory), and a darker color (Zoya Carly)

Step 1: Using your dotting tool, create circle shapes with the darker colored polish (Zoya Carly). You can choose how large or small and how many you'd like. I did 3 :]

Step 2: Using the lighter color (Zoya Rory), create 2 C-shapes with the striping brush starting from the middle, going outward. They don't have to be perfect!

Step 3: Using the white polish (Sinful Colors Snow Me White), outline either on the inside or outside of the C-shapes by creating 2 more C-shapes with the striping brush.

Step 4: Again using the darker polish (Zoya Carly), with the striping brush trace over the middle of the white C-shapes to soften the bright white color.

Step 5: With the striping brush and the green polish (SquareHue Flower Power) make 2 smaller lines to create leaves.

Hope this helps you create some fun spring nail art! :]

See ya tomorrow!
