It’s sunny in Mumbai today and I’m so happy the rain god decided not to rain for a day! Phew! And today’s challenge for the 31 day nail art challenge is to do a floral nail art! So I decided to call my nail art roses on a sunny day nail art 😛
Basically my nail art was inspired by my fellow blogger and friend Priyanjana who did a vintage rose nail art.. I wanted to do the same nail art but then thought of giving it a Gone Trendy twist 😉
Things you need:
1. Skin colored nail polish.
2. Lemon yellow nail polish.
3. Red nail polish.
4. Black nail polish.
5. Green nail polish.
6. Dotting tools.
7. Thin paint brush.
8.Top coat. (essential)
Gather everything and begin!
Start with a ranara base coat to protect you natural nails.
Step One: Do a gradient using skin colored and yellow nail polish. If you don’t know how to do it, check my tutorial for gradient nails.
Step Two: Before we start making roses, use a top coat to seal in your gradient design and give you a smooth surface.
Step Three: Using a dotting tool dipped in red nail polish, make random large dots on your nails. Don’t worry if the dots are not perfectly round.
Step Four: Now this is tricky, using a thin paint brush dipped in black nail polish make a ‘U’ at the center of a red dot.
Make another ‘U’ going slightly outwards from the center.
Keep doing small spaced lines in a spiral manner till you finish outlining the red dot.
Step Five: Repeat for all the red dots.
Step Six: Use the brush dipped in green nail polish to make a few leaves here and there.. Don’t over do the leaves,just a few look great.
Step Seven: Seal in your design with a top coat.
Clean up around the edges of your nails and we are ready to flaunt this pretty roses on a sunny day nail art with a cute floral dress!
