Flower Garden Nails Tutorial

Do This:

  1. apply two coats of pink polish OR one coat of base coat + one coat of pink polish. let nails fully dry.
  2. using a pointed nail brush, dab circular shapes of dark pink acrylic paint onto nails. repeat step with lighter pink and peach colors.
  3. thin some white acrylic paint by mixing in water. then using a light hand, refine circles into flowers by adding small circular strokes into centers of colored circles.

  4. add leaves using green acrylic paint. using white acrylic paint, accentuate flowers by adding a "lace" border.

  5. using a dotting tool OR nail brush OR toothpick, make dots along lace border with white acrylic paint.
