Purple Daisy French Nail
Nail Art Tutorial
Hey there pretty ladies!
Yes, it's another nail art tutorial, yipeee..
But as usual I always get carried away and forget to take a picture of a few steps, this bad habit needs to go away >.<
Actually I really wish that I had more nails to paint but unfortunately, in my house, my sister isn't allowed to use nail polish to school and my mom is using gel nail polish done but the professionals which could last for up to 3 weeks, and I don't think she would want me to ruin that since it's quite pricey as well. And I also haven''t been meeting any friends lately. So it's just me and my nails, bohoo..
The theme for this nail art tutorial is purple, I use dark and light purple and give it a little touch of white. The result is quite satisfying actually. I use water color technique to make the petals, which is to put on the lighter color first. This nail art is inspired by daisy flowers, with my very own twist which is to make it look a little bit abstract. I also show how to make a french nail with a tip guide, it's really easy to use though.
Enough with the talking, here is my Oopsy-Daisy nail art tutorial, Have fun!
Here's a list of all the things that I used:
- A paint brush
- A dotting tool
- Etude Play Nail Polish in white
- Etude Top Coat
- Oumaxi Acrylic Paint
- French Nail Tip Guide
a closer look at the paint brush and dotting tool
Here are the steps:
1. Put on the nail tip guide just right under the white part of your nails.
2. Paint the tip of your nails with white nail polish. I used Etude House Play White Nail Polish.
3. When it dries up, peel of the tip guide.
4. Then I start painting my nails with the lightest color, which is white, then overlay it with the light purple then do the same thing with the dark purple. I didn't wait for it to dry while doing so so that the color could blend well.
The tips here is just make wavy strokes with your brush and don't be afraid to make mistakes since you can always overlay it with another color but keep it thin so that it look more natural.
5. Add little yellow dots in the center of the flower for a final touch. And there you have your very own Oopsy-Daisy Nail. Don't forget to put on a top coat to make it last longer.
If it gets a little messy, you can clean your cuticle with a cotton bud dipped in nail polish remover.
I hope it will be useful, thank you for visiting and have a nice day! :)
