ROSE NAIL ART TUTORIAL

When I'm in a rush my go to nail art is roses. As complicated as it looks it's actually quite simple once you get the hang of it! My roses used to suck then I realized I was making the base of the rose too thick.


15 Second Instagram Tutorial:
Steps:
  1. Using a dotting tool or boby pin use a darker for the base of the rose
  2. Once it's dry draw thin, white curved lines. I use acrylic paint which is easier to manage in my opinion.
  3. Using the same pink as your nail color draw more curved lines once your white lines have dried.
  4. Go back and forth with the white and light pink to add dimension. I did white lines first, then light pink, then white lines again.
  5. Add leaves
  6. Add top coat
  7. Finished!

MATTE BLUE GRADIENT SUMMER NAILS

Living in Southern California we only get two seasons, spring and summer. What's a winter? This past week it got up to 95 degrees and with no A/C it can get pretty miserable. /end rant. But! With hot weather I decided to do a summer mani using blue shades.
