For my first nail art tutorial I thought I'd do something that's simple and quick to do, and seen as the sun is deciding to shine today, I've gone for a pretty summer floral pattern which I hope you'll all like!
For this tutorial, I chose Models Own 'Lemon Meringue', my all time favourite 'Fuzzy Peach' and 'Aciiid'. These colours work so well together and are perfect to give this nail art pattern a vintage feel, but so many different colour combinations would work perfect for this!
Start by painting your base colour.. I find with most models own nail varnishes you only need 2 coats to get it fully opaque.
Once you've done this, select a second colour and using the brush that comes in the bottle (you can use a finer nail art brush if you find that easier) paint random blobs of colour onto the nail - just be sure to leave enough room the do the leaves!
Then, grab yourself a nail art pen that's slightly darker than the flower colour - for this I chose my red Rio nail art pen (if you don't have the colour you want in a nail art pen, then you can always dip a cocktail stick or thin brush into a nail varnish).. and using your pen paint on random flecks around the edge, and a couple of flecks in the middle of the flower to mimic the petals on a rose..
This step is optional.. if you prefer you can just stick to one colour for the flecks of the petals, but I always like to use my trusted models own white nail art pen just to add a couple more as I find it adds a bit more depth to the flower.
Grab yourself whichever green you like and paint a couple of leaves on each flower. Don't worry about being that neat for this part as I tend to find that the 'rougher' the leaves, the more realistic they look. For this I just used the brush in the bottle but use whatever you find easiest to work with..
Last but not least, if you have a green nail art pen then you can also add a few flecks to the leaves to add a bit more detail..
Once your done, seal with your favourite topcoat and your good to go!
I hope you all enjoyed this tutorial!
