Valentines Day Nail Tutorial: Floral

For this tutorial you will need:
-Base Coat (optional)
- A Nude Nail Varnish (again!)
-A Dark Pink Nail Varnish
-Konad Stamper Kit and M57 image plate
-High Shine Top Coat

Step 1: As always, prepare your nails by filing them to desired shape and length. Then wipe over with acetone to remove any oils, and apply base coat.

Step 2: Apply two thin coats of nude nail varnish ( I used Blushing by Creative Nail Design again!). Wait for this to dry completely, before moving on to step 3.

Step 3: Nail art time! I did this design by using the floral pattern on the M57 image plate. Apply nail varnish ( I used Cabaret by Ciate Paint Pots) over the design on the image plate, then using the scraper, scrape off excess nail varnish. Using the smaller end of the stamper, press down hard over the pattern so that it transfers to the stamper. Then align the pattern on the stamper with where you want it placed on the nail. Then roll down over the nail firmly. (This may sound tricky, but there are lots of tutorials on YouTube to help you). 

Step 4: Repeat step 3 if desired. I stamped my nails a few times each so that the design filled up the space on the nail.  

Step 5: Apply Top Coat ( I used Seche Vite)

Voila! Elegant, floral nails perfect for Valentines Day.

As always, feel free to ask any questions, and don't forget to follow! Have a nice day :)

You can purchase the products mentioned from:

Blushing by Creative Nail Design. As far as I know this colour has been discontinued but Nude Attitude by Essie is similar. ( )
