Happy Magazonday to you!
I'm very excited about this post, mostly because it involves nails, bright colors and creativity! When I saw this editorial in Teen Vogue (it was about nails) i was ecstatic. See, i used to bite my nails A LOT. Then one day i just stopped, i'm not sure how it happened or why i did but i haven't been happier since. Now i love to experiment with my nails....the brighter and crazier the better!
If you look closely the nails featured are floral nails, they may look complicated but never to worry they are very easy. I used a detailing/dotting tool i have, it's really great for precision and making perfect dots. If your at all into nail art i recommend getting it, it works wonders.
Painting this nail is best if you start with a blank canvas and by blank i mean white, then just layer all your polishes...
Here are the steps to creating the nail:
1st step- use 2 or 3 colors on top of the white base (i did some geometric shapes, and covered the tip of the nail in one color)
2nd step- start making your center of the flowers, a simple dot will do
3rd step- now it's time for the petals, using a steady hand paint on the petals (i just did little lines that got bigger toward the end)
4th step- fill in any big white areas you have with a color of your choice (i made stems for my flowers)
IMPORTANT: MAKE SURE YOU LET EVERY LAYER DRY BEFORE YOU PAINT THE NEXT LAYER
Here are the polishes i used....
And here's the end result.....
I hope you guys try this, it's so perfect for spring!
