Nail Art Tutorial: Two Toned Floral Femme Nails

Nail art tutorial Tuesday!  For the nail art lovers out there, thanks for always appreciating my nail art and I've done something quite simple yet nice to look at. I've done a simple two-toned flower on top of 2 favorite nail color of mine!  Pinks and Reds!
 


It's not as hard as you think! :) Read on how to do this on your own!
 
Step 1: 

Apply 1 coat of ELF Light Pink nail polish.  (Apply a base coat prior to your nail polish application, as always)  I am nearly done with this shade, I will definitely order from Makeup Mix Shop again! 



Step 2: 

Making sure the base color is dry, using my favorite red polish from The Face Shop's RD001, create a vertical line as shown on photo below.
 

 
Step 3: 

Using Prettynails' art pen in white, create dots for flowers and line between the red and pink polish.
 

 
Step 4: 

Use the needle method to make the flower petal more natural looking.  You can skip this step if you are ok with circular dots petal.
 

 
 
Step 5: 

Use Prettynails' art pen in Pinkish Red, press the pen on top of the white petals to create "two tone".
 

 

Step 6: 

Making sure the flower and dots are dry, top the nail art with Caronia Silver Glitter polish.  This step is also optional.
 

 

Step 7: 

Protect your nail art with The Face Shop's Top Coat.  My 3rd bottle!
 

 
 


 

If you don't have nail art dotting pen, you can use any dotting tool to create dots!  Toothpicks are ok!  Do give it a try and show me your nail art! :)

I know, I'm back to being dainty again!  But who knows? I can pull out the feisty-ness in me one of these days!  Give me a holler and let me know if you like this!

Keep smilin'!
Stay happy!
