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.

Valentine’s day Nail art – Part 4

cute love nail art

 

Hi

I’m really high on Valentine’s nail art this time. This is the 4th part of the series. You can check others here

Valentine’s nail art Part 2

Valentine’s nail art Part 3

Since Valentine’s is all about love and hearts and pinks, I incorporated all of this into one nail art. I always say that white is a great base color for nail art, but I wanted to use some other color this time. So I settled on this pink and white combination.

I wanted to make it a couple’s nail art but I had already done one before (Part-1 of series above *if you still haven’t checked it, go check it fast fast*). So being a student of biology, I drew the symbols of male and female as an alternative 😀

If you don’t know about it, male is represented by this symbol of Mars –  ♂ : a circle with an arrow pointing north-east. Female is represented by the symbol of Venus – ♀ : a circle with a small cross underneath.

I took the liberty of drawing a pink bow on the female symbol ^_^ (Okay, also to make it look like a female. Otherwise these are just weird shapes for a layman).

The black nail art pen I used went gloopy, that is why I couldn’t draw perfect circle and that is why they look alien-ish

Anyhoo, they still look pretty to me 🙂

I always always always do nail art on both my hands, no matter how shaky my left hand is. This is how my right hand mani looked. Not bad, haan.

I drew the hearts using the tips mentioned HERE. Super easy!

And finally I finished it with a glittery top coat on pink nails and some polka dot on my thumb.

Nail polishes used:

Pink: Colorbar Nail Lacquer – Rose Quartz 92

White: NYC In a minute quick dry nail polish – Blanco 032

Glitter top coat: Colorbar Pro Glitterati Top coat – Retro Pink

Glitter on thumb: Maybelline Color show Glitter Mania – Pink Champagne

Valentine’s day Nail art – Part 2

valentine nail art

 

Hi

I have done the first part of this Valentine’s series HERE. Check it out.

This time I made it rather colorful nail art. And as always, white is a great color as base for nail arts. It makes other colors really pop.

I wanted to make a polka dot kinda nail art and I thought how about tweaking it with little hearts instead.

I have made the hearts using a dotting tool. I have done a tutorial on super easy way to draw hearts. Check it HERE. I have drawn the hearts here using the ‘v’ technique.

I wanted to keep this nail art soft and pastely, that is why I have used light colors. You can use any color of your choice.

The white nail polish I have used for base is NYC In a minute quick dry nail polish – Blanco 032

Hope you like it

XOXO

Polka dots nail art

colorful polka dots

POLKAAAAAA DOOOOOOOOTS……make me so happy. I like polka dots everywhere- be it polka dots dress, polka dot accessories, polka dot home decor…I would sooo love to have a polka dot wall in my home. Now Polka dots is my favorite nail art for 3 reasons.

1. It doesnot take long to do. Keep your polishes ready and it wont take more than 5 mins.

2. Doesn’t require precision. Just dot randomly and you are done

3. It prettify your nails so much 🙂

You can see my love for Polka dots HERE ,HERE, HERE and HERE And many more will come eventually.. hihihi

I did this nail art a while ago. White is such a versatile color. You can paint just anything on it, like an empty canvas. Plus white makes other colors pop.

Like I said, this nail art doesnt require much precision. I have made the dots directly from the nail polish brush. No special tools used. That is why my dots are not perfect round.

 Grab as many colors as you want and start dotting. No need to make it uniform.

Happy Painting 🙂

Valentine day nail art

Valentine 2

Ok so this is going to be a short post. Since love is in the air, I did a Valentine’s day nail art.

I painted my nails in White base color since this is the best color as your canvas on which your imagination can run wild. I wanted to paint a boy and girl exchanging hearts.

valentine 3

I drew the hearts using a tooth pick. You can find the tutorial for drawing hearts HERE. I have used the first method out of the two given in the tutorial. Worth a read I’d say.

I drew the boy and the girl using a nail art pen. Now since the couple’s hearts exchange finished off on the 4 fingers itself, my thumb got lonely = D So I did the easiest thing. Added Polka dots. And to keep up with the theme I drew a small heart.

Nail polishes used:

White: NYC In a minute quick dry nail polish – Blanco 032

Red: Colorbar Pro nail lacquer- Rosie

I liked the mani. Hope you find it useful too.

Chevron Accent Nails

Hello girlies,

It has been a long time since I last posted a nail art. I have been a bit lazy, thats all. Now, I was not a huge fan of Accent nails but decided, Eh! I might as well try. And, after this nail art, I have pretty much started liking accent nails. It looks pretty. Takes much less time (1 nail vs 10 nails).

So, accent nails are basically when you paint one of your nails differently from the rest. It can be any nail. I chose the ring finger.

Accent nails1

I chose to draw a  chevron sign for accent nail.

Accent nails 2

First I decided to use a scotch-tape. But the final result was not symmetrical.

So, I had to touch up and redo the design  free hand.

Accent nails are comparatively easier and best for the times you are running late. Plus when they prettify the nails well, who’s to complain? 🙂

 Happy painting!

Love,

Blossom 🙂

Black and White nail art

Hello Girlies,

I was a novice at nail art (still am) when I got hooked to colorful, bright nails with beautiful nail designs. I used to get ideas about the designs online through others’ blogs. Here, I hope the likes of my kind may find something useful.

                                             (Please ignore the chipping)

This is not the kinda nail art I usually  do as its very time-consuming. But when you’re down with fever & weakness in chilly winters and you have nothing to do except to lie down in blanket whole day,you’ve got to kill the time somehow. And this is what I did. Black and White zebra nails 🙂

I did not use any nail art tools but only scotch tape. I must tell you it is really a pain to cut the scotch tape this thin.

Plus I used the bad nail paints which chipped badly (as can be seen from the pics) and took so much time to dry.

Anyhoo, I give you girls an idea about the designs that you can try on your nails.

The pics were taken 4-5 days after I did this nail art. Plus I should have used a top coat. But am too lazy and the bad quality of nail polish (which took toooo long to dry) drained all my energy.

I hope you find it useful.

Love,

Blossom 🙂
