These handpainted flowers can be created in your client's choice of paint color.
1. Cover the nail in white acrylic craft paint.
2. Use a 10/0 synthetic craft brush and dark green acrylic paint to add two diagonal lines that start in the right corner. Use the brush and olive green acrylic paint to add a line in between.
3. Use olive green acrylic paint to create leaves.
4. Use red acrylic paint to make squiggly oval shapes for the two large poppies. Accent with orange acrylic paint. Use the red paint to create three smaller poppies. Add black half circles inside the large poppies. Apply top coat.
