“Don’t worry if the flower looks a bit messy… it’ll add to the overall look…”
Hi there, just in time for the upcoming Spring season, I’m going to show you how to create this ‘Color Lit Floral’ nail art! Keepin mind that while in the middle of making this design you may feel unsure of how this design will turn out like – but not to worry, it’s what creating and experimenting is ALL ABOUT!
Rest assured though, this is a really easy look that looks much harder that it is, AND you don’t need to worry too much if the flower looks a bit messy – it’ll add to the overall look!
With an outline and white to fade the design, you’ll fall in love with the overall design!
今回は、Color Lit Floral の作り方を紹介します！
Take some ivory and pink color on each side of angular brush. (Here I am using tati Artchocolat Mimosa brush)
Absorb the color and create a gradation on the brush.
Note, I’ve been applied 2 coats of ivory for base and cured.
With an up and down motion, paint 5 flower petals with the angular brush.
Clean the brush and take some ivory and salmon pink color on each side of the brush.
Absorb the color and make a gradation on the brush.
Draw another flower diagonally above of the first pink flower.
Change the color to light blue and do step 3 and 4 again. Paint the last flower wherever you have some empty space.
Use some brown and paint inside the center flowers. The more irregular of a shape, the better.
With some yellow, paint on top of the brown. Though, make sure you don’t cover all of the brown with the yellow.
Mix with some green and nail wipe liquid to dilute the green to a watery consistency.
Here I am using the tati Artchocolat Gris brush. Paint the green around the flowers. The nail wipe will evaporate and help create some visual depth in the green color.
Change the color to lighter green and do step 8 and 9 again.
Apply thin layer of clear gel to make a surface smooth.
Take a black color on liner brush (here I am using tati Artchocolat Printemps brush) to make an outline of the center of the flower.
You don’t need to cover whole circle center of the flower. Make some space in between the lines, and keep the outline’s thickness varying.
Draw an outline of petal. remember, you don’t need to connect all lines – leave some space.
Take a generous amount of black on the liner brush and place random dots onto petal and around flower. These dots add some more visual break solidifying the irregular coloured petals.
Draw tiny fine line’s to show the vein and creases coming from the center of the flower on the petals.
Finally my favorite part (and easiest!). Fold a lint free cotton in to a small piece that you can grab with a pair of tweezers. And take a bit of high pigment white color onto the cotton. Dab and remove some of the excess white gel on a pallette. You’ll need to do a bit of adjusting with this as you just want a little bit of white on it.
Dab the white over the entire design.
Contain and frame this entire design by drawing a line around of edge with some gold.
If you’d like, place a sticker on the center of nail and apply a matte coat on the entire nail and cure.
Then you’re done! Hope you enjoyed this mini tutorial!
