I am using artificial nails for two reasons mainly one, my own nails are ugly and unfit to be displayed as model, and two, I find it easier to work on them for the purpose of demonstration.
So I have attached a couple of artificial nails on pens to serve as the fingers. Now let us go through the steps…
Apply any light, sheer polish as base coat. It is best to go with one of a natural, floral colour.
Draw the outline of a flower with a black nail art pen, or an eye-liner like I have done, as it is easier to rub off the liner if the drawing goes wrong.
Fill the petals with a vibrant, opaque colour in tune with the floral theme
Alternatively, fill the petals up with black nail polish
Fill up the centre of the flower with black if the petals are coloured or with the colour if the petals are black
Now draw the outlines of leaves and/or stem in the empty space around the completed flower
And fill them up with green and clear polish as top coat and the art is complete
