Bryan Vu creates rose inspired nail art.
1. Polish the nail red.
2. Use a make-up sponge to apply black acrylic paint as a fade, making the bottom darker.
3. Use a fine brush to add abstract black lines. Apply top coat.
4. Use black and white acrylic to sculpt a 3-D flower. Use the double-loading technique of dipping the brush in the white, then in the black, to create petals that include both colors. Start from the outer part of the flower and work toward the center, using smaller beads as you approach the center. Add 3-D black-and-white leaves.
5. On the outer petals add a few clear acrylic dots to look like rain droplets. Add a line of rhinestones on top of the black. Use a fine brush and coat only the clear acrylic “rain” dots with clear polish.
