Shannon Rooney demonstrates how to do Summer Flowers nails.


1. Start with the nail painted in one coat of OPI Gargantuan Green Grape. Using a dotting tool and Salon Perfect Traffic Cone, make the first of five unconnected triangles to form a flower.


2. Paint remaining four triangles to finish the first flower. Make three more triangles at the free end on each side to form half-flowers.


3. Add a row of dots around the flowers using Traffic Cone. Add a row of green dots around the flowers using Finger Paints Silkscreen Green.


4. Apply one coat of Sephora’s Reactive over the whole nail. While still wet, add light green gems to the center of the flowers to complete them. Apply OPI Rapid Dry top coat.
