Floral nail art for Digital Dozen Nature Week: Day Two

Tuesday, March 10, 2015

It's Day two of Digit-al Dozen Nature Week.

Nature means I can create the things I love - florals and landscapes. Today is a fun floral.

I used alcohol inks for the base. To protect my nails and cuticles from getting stained, I applied Crystalline Nail Veil from Color4Nails. However, I didn't get it close enough to the edges and did end up with some staining. But it washed off easily in the shower. 

I used acrylic paints for the flowers and stems. I love working with acrylic paint. It doesn't dry out quickly, which means you can use a very small amount. And if you feel like you really messed it up you can wash it off - providing you applied a good top coat before using the paint.

Crystalline Nail Veil was previously provided to me for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
