Flowers & Dots | Nail Art Tutorial
Now lets show you how we created this flowers and dots nail art!
First of all it is important to make sure your nails are clean and ready to be painted before we start, so we need to do a little bit of preparation. If you have nail polish on already, you will need to take it off with some nail polish remover. After this is done, I usually wash my hands just to ensure my nails are completely clean.
Then it’s time to tidy your nails up a little and to shape them to how you want, using with your file. Also, if you want make your nails appear longer – you can push back your cuticles. If you place your hand in some warm water for a few minutes, it will help soften your skin making it easier for you to do this.
Once you are ready, you should apply a base coat to your nail as this will protect your nails from being stained but also will make applying your nail polish much smoother. We used the Vitamin Base Coat (1) to do this.
Once your base coat is dry (this shouldn’t take too long), we can start moving on to the more exciting parts – deciding what colour you want your nails to be! For this look, we decided to have the ring finger as the main focus so we painted this nail with the white (3) nail polish, and the rest with the gorgeous nail polish in the colour Peachella (2). We applied 2 coats of the nail polish as this makes sure the nails are covered well.
We recommend you apply two thin coats rather than one thick one as the thicker the coat, the longer it will take to dry.
Once the white nail polish is dry, it’s time to start creating the flowers & dots nail art! Firstly – we need to plan where we want the flowers to be on the ring finger nail. To do this, we placed small dots with the dotting tool (5) with the nail polish in the colour Lemon Meringue (4).
Once you are happy with where the flowers are going to be – it’s time to add the petals! To do this, we used the dotting tool (5) to paint them on with the nail polish in the colour Peachella (2).
Next, we decided to add a little bit more to this nail look by painting on yellow and white dots on the little finger nail. To do this, we used the dotting tool (5) with the yellow (4) and white (3) nail polish.
* This nail look is gorgeous with just the flowers so you could leave it there if you wanted to.
Now it’s time to add the final touch to the look! We painted on the dots on the rest of the nails using the dotting tool (5) with the yellow (4) and white (3) nail polish.
And that’s how we created this flower and dots nail look! It’s a gorgeous look for your nails this spring! Perfect for everyday wear!
