Happy Thursday everyone! Are you as giddy as I am as the weekend is super reachable? Today, I am excited to share another simple nail art tutorial that uses only a few shades, this is dedicated for readers who own limited shades of polish and I chose the 2 shades that most of us would have!
Red and Yellow --- I did not add Green as I don't plan to do a "Stop Light" nail art tutorial! :P
Here's the finish product, the point is to create sharp-edged petals on both sides for that "Christmas-y" feel. To make the design pop, I used only 2 colors against each other thus the name Yellow on Red, Red on Yellow.
Protect your nails with a base coat. Promise! It HELPS to invest in a good one, my nails haven't been yellowing much! Once base coat is dry, apply coats of yellow and red polish alternately. Used Caronia's Yellow polish called Sweet Surprise and Paul & Joe Red Polish in no 012.
Step 2:It is vital to make sure both shades are completely dry. Once dry, apply red dots on top of the yellow base for that nice and bright contrast. While the dots are still wet, drag both ends with a needle!
Once the flower petals are completely dry, it is optional but I prefer to do this, apply an alternate shade only on the inner side of the petals for that 3 dimensional look!
Same goes for the rest of the flower petals!
You can choose to use rhinestones as flower bud, in my case, I dropped glittery polish at the center for that nice "sparkle".
Enjoy looking at your bright nails that screams....
"STOP right now, thank you very much.."
