Floral Nails! Pretty Pink Roses Nail Tutorial

Ciao dears!,

        I know I said today was going to be a fashion post with a tutu, but I got the days confused.  That one will be up tomorrow.  Anyway, here’s a pretty nail tutorial.  I was bored one day and decided to paint pretty roses on my nails.  I forgot to take step by step pictures, but I’ll tell you how I did it anyway.  I got so many compliments on these and it’s pretty easy.  You just need a little time and patience.

Things You’ll Need:

White Nail Polish

2 Shades of Pink Nail Polish (a lighter and a darker one)

A Light Green Polish

Clear Nail Polish/Topcoat

Toothpicks

Steps:

1.) Apply a coat of white polish to all of your nails.  Let dry for about 10-15 minutes.  Apply a second coat and let them dry.

2.) Work on one nail at time.  Use the nail polish brush to make a few small circles with the light pink polish.

3.) While the light pink circles are still wet, add a few tiny dark pink dots onto each light pink circle.

4.) Use a toothpick to swirl the two colors together, creating the pretty roses.  They don’t need to be perfect, just try.

5.) Use a toothpick with the green polish to creates leaves on each flower.  Swipe the toothpick out from the rose, creating a thin leaf shape.

6.) Repeat the process with each nail.

7.) Wait about 15-20 minutes and then apply a clear nail polish on top to seal the design.

Tada!  Aren’t they fun!  You can alter the colors using the same technique for Fall/Winter.  Blue flowers would be pretty too.
