Tutorial: Floral Nails #2

It has been a ages since I last did a tutorial. So I am back with a super simple tutorial for Floral nail art.

I am thinking of posting more nail arts on the blog.

I have done other Floral nail arts HERE and HERE.

You can check part #1 of Floral nails tutorials HERE

So, let’s begin with this nail art

 

Things you need:

  • Base nail paint 

I used NYC In a minute quick dry nail polish – Blanco 032

Make sure to choose a quick drying one. I made a blunder of not choosing a quick drying one and ended up with untidy design 😦

  • Nailpaints for flowers

You can choose whichever shade you like. I used Nykaa Neon Matte in shades Cherry Pop (Orange) and Pink Lemonade (Pink).

See the proper swatch of these nail polish HERE.

 

  • Green nailpaint for leaves

I did not have a proper green color, so I had to make do with this pastel mint green nailpolish by Note (shade: 71 Mint)

 

  • Toothpick!

Thats’s it.

 

Steps for an awesome Floral Nail art

  1. Paint the base color of your choice. I chose white as it is a perfect canvas for any nail art .

    Check out some amazing nail arts I did using White base HERE

 

2. Using back of the toothpick place random colorful dots on the nails. Make sure not to dot too closely.

 

 

 

 

3. Using the pointed end of the toothpick, pick up some white nailpolish and draw swirls inside the colorful dots you painted.

(I know mine looks bad. Blame the crappy white nailpolish I used)

 

 

4. Using the pointed end of another toothpick, pick up green nailpolish and add random short lines around the colorful dots. This will make the leaves.

 

 

 

5. Seal with a top coat. Tadaaa!

 

 

 

Hope you find this useful.

Do tag me if you recreate this nail art. I would love to see it.

Tutorial: Removing Glitter Nail polish

tutorial glitter polish removal

So, who does not want some sparkle in their life (or their nails). Sure the sparkle in life can be added by the better half (remember when the aunties say…oooh you have a twinkle in ur eyeees… or.. oooh you have a glow on ur faceee… what is the secreeet…tell us, tell us… irritating!! )

But are you among the one who think twice to bring the sparkle to your nails? Are you one such person who loves glitter nail polishes but avoids them altogether ‘coz of the horrors in removing them?

Worry not girls… Blossom to the rescue!  😀

The Colorshow Glitter Mania range that Maybelline launched a couple of months ago brought glitter polishes back in trend. And here’s how you can enjoy flaunting your glittery tips without worrying for the pain-in-the-ass task of removing them.

Now the traditional way of removing nail polish with cotton balls/ pads doesnot work with these. The glitter will shred the cotton and it will take forever to remove polish from one nail only, let alone both hands. I tell you a simple way to remove such nasty polishes (well not simple but it sure does work) =)

Things you need:

Steps:

1. Soak a cotton ball with nail polish remover and place it on your nail. Ensure that it covers the entire nail.

 2. Cover the cotton covered finger with foil

3. Repeat for all ten fingers

It may get difficult to wrap the fingers in other hand after finishing the ones in first hand with all the foiled tips. I cut the required foil pieces beforehand to make it easier.

4. Hold for 2-3 minutes. By the time you finish with all ten nails, the first nail you wrapped should be done.

5. Remove the foil by swiping the entire thing off your nail. Apply light pressure as you do so.

Most of the glitter should be out

6. A small amount will get left out on the nails. Use the other side of the soaked cotton ball to remove it.

And that’s it. It may look messy or time consuming at first, but believe me it is WAY better and easier than doing it the conventional way with cotton ball.

If you feel you are wasting too much of the remover, use the other side of used cotton to remove nailpolish on your toe nails.

Hope you find it useful 🙂
