6 Simple Steps Tutorial: Floral Nail Art For Spring
To welcome in the new season Inspirationail has teamed up with the talented Laura Biz to bring you this floral nail art tutorial.
A gorgeous yet simple design for you to re-create at home.
The colours are inspired by the Fall 2014 Pantone report. That’s right folks, we’re matching future seasons colours with the current seasons designs, we suggest you try it – you may like it. 😉
Before starting the design, file down your nails, gently push back your cuticles and apply a base coat.
Apply 2 coats of a light blue nail polish.
Take a cosmetic sponge and apply a thin layer of purple nail polish to it. Allow the polish to soak into the sponge a little bit. Lightly dab the sponge across the top half of the nail. Continue to dab the purple colour into the nail, start each layer slightly further up the nail to achieve the ombre effect.
Top Tip: Let each layer of the ombre colour dry before adding the next layer, if you don’t the sponge will pick up the wet polish and the outcome won’t be the same.
Using white nail polish, create rough circles in random places on each nail to start creating the flowers.
Top Tip: For white circles start with a dot in the middle and gradually move out towards the edges to create the perfect petal effect.
With a dark purple nail art pen draw small curved lines to create petal detail.
Using a dotting tool, add small dots of white polish to a feature nail.
When the nail art design is dry, finish with a top coat.
