How to create magical flower nails in time for summer

Thanks to social media, nail art has taken on a new life of its own. We've said our farewells to plain, nude shellac nails and instead said hello to creative masterpieces on our very own hands. In particular, the magic of fairytale and whimsical nail art has become a fascination for many of us.
As we head into the summer period, dark, autumnal polishes are being replaced with soft pastels and light glosses. If you want to take your vacation nails a step further, but worry about precision and creating a professional outcome, this floral nail tutorial is specially made for you.

Instructions
1. Apply the clear, shiny coat of nail polish to your nails. As you go through each stage of painting your nails, wait until the polish is dry before moving on.
2. Using a rounded-end jewel setter, place small, scattered silver sequins across each nail.
3. Paint on at least two coats of the Makartt Soak-Off Gel Nail Polish in Crystal Velvet. This will help secure the sequins in place.
4. Using a gold nail foil sheet, dab the corners of the foil onto each nail in random positions and directions.
5. With a pair of tweezers, pinch a flower sticker of your choice between the prongs. Gently stick the flower onto your nail in an appropriate placement—we recommend the edges surrounding the foil. Continue to do this on each nail with stickers of your choice, such as birds and bees for a summery feel.
6. Apply the Gelish Soak-Off Gel Polish Foundation onto the nails to secure the stickers.
7. Lastly, paint your nails with the Matte Gel Top Soak-Off polish, which will help set and mattify the nails.
