Flower Nail Art Tutorial Perfect For Fall
There’s no better way for nail enthusiasts to celebrate the changing of the season than having a really nice flower nail art. This tutorial may seem daunting to make given its intricate details, but I assure you guys that this is very doable. So get ready to wow the crowd with this breathtaking nail art.
For this flower nail art, you will need:
- Navy blue nail polish
- Matte top coat
- Turquoise nail polish
- White nail polish
- Yellow nail polish
- Gold nail polish
- Dotting tool
Step 1: Do the Base
You begin this flower nail art by painting the nails with a navy blue nail polish as the base coat. Then add a matte top coat, you’ll know why it has to be matte coat later.
Step 2: Practice makes Perfect
In a sheet of paper, practice making an orchid. Begin by forming a dotted center. Draw a small petal on top then two larger ones on the side. Finally, connect very small petals to the larger ones. Don’t worry too much about perfecting the petal design because it doesn’t have to be that perfect, just make sure it doesn’t look dirty.
Step 3: Make a Petal
For the first small petal, use half navy blue and half turquoise to create a gradient effect. Create a drop-like shape using the said colors. The gradient effect makes the design more realistic. However, if you opt not too, or if you think that step is complicated then you can just use one color for the petal.
Step 4: Add larger Petals
Create a gradient effect using the white and navy blue nail polish. Add a little bit of turquoise to the mix. Use the color combination to create the larger petals for your flower nail art.
Step 5: Create smaller Petals
Make another gradient effect using 2/3 of the navy blue nail polish and 1/3 of the white nail polish. Use this color scheme to make the small lower petals. Ensure that the petals are well connected to the center of the flower.
Step 6: Go for Second Coat
Redo a coat for the larger petals you drew on the side. Only the side petals of this flower nail art get a second coat while the others only get one.
Step 7: Outline with Blue
Draw inner lines to the petals using the navy blue nail polish. This will make the flower nail art stand out. This will also correct any defect you may have made while drawing the petals. Also, it kind of provides a more detailed impression of the petals.
Step 8: Highlight with White
Highlight the curves of the flowers using white nail polish. This makes the flower nail art look brighter.
Step 9: Draw the Pollen
Using a yellow and gold nail polish, draw a small dot on the center to recreate the pollen.
Step 10: Decorate Flower Nail Art
Create some more decorations using a small dotting tool. You can go free hand with this step.
