Guest Post: Creating rose nail art

Hello everyone. This guest post will be a nail art tutorial for the design you see on the picture. It might look more difficult than it is but I’ll try to break it down so you can recreate it for yourself.

Step 1: First apply your base coat to protect your nail.
Step 2: As your base color you’ll want a sheer frosty white nail polish. Apply a thin coat of that nail polish to nails.
Step 3: With pink color of your choice create the french tips. If you have short nails you can do a straight line;  just place your brush on one side of your nail and while keeping it stable, roll your finger. If you have long nails you’re better off creating a more traditional ‘smiley’ french tip.
Step 4: Once the pink color is dry add some multi-color glitter polish to the tips (optional step) by dabbing the brush onto the end of nails.
Step 5: On the ring and middle fingers add 2 roses on each finger. One rose must be smaller than the other to get the effect. To draw the rose just start creating small wavy lines in circle, making the lines slightly bigger as you go out.
Step 6: Between the 2 roses add some tiny black dots forming a bow. To do so, on one side of the roses start placing the dots in triangle shape. Do the same on the other side of the roses. Finally add 2-3 dots between the 2 roses to connect the triangles so it will look like bow.
Step 7: On the other 3 fingers add some tiny black dots along the french tip line.
Step 8: Apply your top coat and you’re done 🙂 Enjoy.

Believe me it isn’t as hard as it might look at first – if you try it I think you’ll love it!
