Are you the kind of person that loves your nail polish to match every outfit you will wear while your nails are painted? If so, I have the perfect nail design for you to try! Here is how to do it. . .

Note: I will be providing instructions on how to achieve this look with plain polish, along with Gel Polish.

Step 1: Prep Nails


View my post on Nail Polish Prep.

 

Step 2: Paint Nails

Paint all of the nails with two coats of white polish. I used the Shellac color called, [amazon text=Cream Puff&asin=B003OGQYC0].

Gel Polish: Apply two coats of white polish and cure in light (curing after each coat). Cure 2 minutes in the UV light, or 1 minute in an LED light. Flowers 002

Step 3: Flowers

Now on all the fingers, I painted 5-dot flowers and then pulled the paint from each dot to the center. Once the paint is dry, add a small dot for the center.

(Note: I did the flowers with acrylic craft paint. . . Some polishes can dry almost transparent which makes the image hazy and you won’t get the wow factor you are going for. View my tutorial on how to paint flowers.)Flowers 003

I began by painting a different color, whole flower on each finger; This was to guarantee that each color had at least one whole flower.

Once the paint has dried, add different colored dots for the center of the flowers.

Step 4: Apply Final Top Coat

Now apply your top coat. Make sure the paint is completely dry before adding top coat to help avoid smearing.

Gel Polish: Apply top coat, only after paint is completely dry, and cure in UV light for 2 minutes.

 

Step 5: Allow to Dry and Apply Cuticle Oil

Allow your polish to dry completely. Apply a cuticle oil just around your nails on the cuticle and rub into the skin.

Gel Polish: Remove sticky residue on top of nails with a little alcohol or polish remover and apply cuticle oil.Flowers Remove gel polish after 2-3 weeks, check out Gel Polish Removal for the quickest, easiest and best way to remove gels.
