Day Three of the Seven Day of Floral Tutorials - Everything is coming up roses!

Saturday, May 11, 2013

It's day three of the Seven Day of Floral Tutorials and I hope you are enjoying it. I know I am. Today everything is coming up roses!

These sweet roses have a few steps but are actually quite easy and the color possibilities are endless.

I started off with a base color of Zoya Blu. This soft pastel blue makes a perfect canvas for nail art.

Then I used a MASH Nail Art Brush and added irregular shaped blue circles with medium blue acrylic paint.

Using a darker blue acrylic paint partially outline the circles. Make sure not to outline the entire circle. Then go inside the line and add a few rounded lines. You are now started to add the detail and definition to the roses.

Use a lighter blue (or add white to your blue paint) and add even more definition to the roses by adding curved lines of the lighter blue paint.

With an even lighter blue add some curved lines to the centers of your roses.

Use a green paint to add the leaves. With leaves you just used a shorter nail art brush and push down on the nail, pull down, and lift up. Practice on a piece of paper if you want to first.

Add a top coat to seal your nail art and add the shine. There you have it. Gorgeous nail art that really wasn't that hard.
