Pretty Floral Nails Tutorial


The warmer sunnier weather we've been getting recently has inspired me to create a Spring floral nail design using white as a back drop and pretty little pink flowers. There are so many great floral nail designs out there and this is just my take on the trend. Keep reading if you want to paint the design yourself!



Start off with white nails, I used two coats of OPI's Alpine Snow. Wait for it to dry completely. Take a pastel pink, mine is MUA Shade 16 and using a cotton bud, dot on varying spots of the colour. Be sure not to make the spots too close together....



Using a white nail art pen (or regular white polish with a thin paintbrush) add some white over the pink spots, blend these in slightly. It adds highlights and gives a 3-dimensional effect to the flowers.



Using a green nail art pen (or regular green polish and thin paintbrush) add leaves to either side of your flowers. 



Finish with a top coat of your choice and enjoy your vintage floral nails!
