Materials
- Clippers, nail file, cuticle stick and buffer
- White nail polish
- Orange, yellow and pink Sharpie markers
- Fine paintbrush
- 70 percent isopropyl rubbing alcohol
- Black nail polish
- Non-wipe gel top coat
Instructions
1. Prep your nails. Trim, file, nudge cuticles and buff nails, and then wash and wipe clean.
2. Paint nails with white nail polish. Add a second coat and allow them to dry.
3. Outline the flower shapes on each nail starting with a pink Sharpie. Be creative and place flowers in different areas of your nails: high, low and in the middle.
4. Add orange outlines inside the pink flowers with the orange Sharpie.
5. Fill in the center of the flowers with yellow.
6. Take a fine paintbrush and dip it in the rubbing alcohol. Slightly paint the rubbing alcohol onto the flowers, blending the pink, orange and yellow colors like a watercolor. Allow drying time.
7. Dip the fine paintbrush into the black nail polish. With a steady hand, paint small petals on each of the pink and orange parts of the flowers.
8. Continue to paint petals on all flowers with varying lines. Once you’ve painted all of them, continue with the black paint by adding lines in the middle of the petals, adding a look of texture.
9. Add small dots in the centers of the yellow parts of the flowers.
10. Finish off with a non-wipe gel coating on each of the nails.
