Basic Nail Art for Students: Springtime Floral

by Tracy Rubert | May 17, 2017

1. Polish the nail with two layers of white gel-polish. Cure between coats.

2. Paint spots of red gel-polish on the nail in random places. Do not cure.

3. Add a spot of yellow gel-polish over the red and use a dotting tool to swirl the colors together. This will create the rose. Cure. Use a detail brush and green
gel-polish to add petals. Cure.

4. Repeat Step 3 to swirl the rest of the roses and add hints of sparkle with glitter gel-polish for a little shine. Cure. Seal the look with top coat and cure.
