Its time for another nail tutorial, and I’m super stoked to share this one with you ladies!
I’ve been hooked onto lavender for a while, and I was so happy to see that essie came up with three beautiful shades: Bottle Service, Boom Boom Room, and Rock the Boat. This tutorial’s going to show how you can create beautiful feminine flower petals- inspired DIY nails!
You will need: The polishes mentioned above, a piece of tin foil, and a small brush.
Start with fresh nails armed with basecoat.I’m wearing synthetic nails in this tutorial because my nails chipped while I was moving and had to cut them really short.
Apply two generous coats of lilac. A single coat usually doesn’t do the trick for me, since I like to have my nail colours vivid and solid.
On your tinfoil, make a small puddle of the baby pink polish. Then make small petals (flaring out in the same direction) on all of your nails. It doesn’t have to be perfect, because you’ll be making outlines over the edges.
Decorate the baby pink petals with a hot pink polish! Here, I outlined by petals and added dots to give it a feminine and playful touch. It also helps to add more definition and depth to your petals. Repeat this on all of your nails.
You can skip this step if you don’t have stones; but if you do, use them! It will act as an unexpected glamour point. Use clear top coat or nail adhesives to secure in place.
Voilà! And it’s finished. This is a simple yet cute design you could use with virtually any colours you wish.
And did you know? Men are attracted to women wearing lilac! ;)
That should be enough motivation for you to try this tutorial, shouldn’t it? Good luck!
