Nail Art Tutorial: Romantic Bridal Nails

The month of wedding has long been gone but I've got friends getting married left and right! That's when I realized I haven't done any inspiration nails for the Brides.! I remembered having my own nails in white with colored flowers and I love how it came out on photos! Gone are the usual French Tipped nails!

Well this tutorial, I mixed the usual French Tip nails with added romance. So whatever angle the camera gets to shoot, you're sure your nails won't feel embarrassed :D

Here's my Romantic Bridal Nails, I may add more in the future.

Step 1:
Apply base coat prior to any nail polish application. I am using Sally Hansen's Base and Top Coat. Apply 2 coats of light purple polish. Let dry. I am using 2True polish in shade no. 12

Step 2:

Using a thin brush, apply L.A. Colors Art Deco white polish on the tips. If you have a hard time making the tip looks perfect, you can use French Tip stickers from Sally Hansen.

Step 3:

Apply a top coat or any clear coat of your choice.

Step 4:

While the clear polish is still wet, drop 5 dots to create petals.

Step 5:

Use the needle method to fix the petals and create a petal illusion.

NOTE: If you want to create perfect flowers, you can skip Steps 4 and 5 and put on flower stickers :)

Step 6:

Put a dot of silver polish in the middle as a flower bud.

Step 7:

Top everything with a top coat to protect your nail art. I am using Sally Hansen's Base & Top Coat.

Now's my bridal ready nail art :)
Romantic and sweet
