Spring flowers nail art

Here is another cute Spring nail art design inspired by one done by Cute Polish on YouTube.
Step1: Paint a neutral base coat. Apply 2 coats if necessary and wait till its completely dry.
Step 2: Make 5 small dots with a dotting tool (in any colour). While still wet, take a toothpick and draw a line from the middle of the dot into the center of what will become your flower.
Step 3: Make a dot in the middle of the flower (in a different colour) and wait for the whole design to dry.

Add a top coat and you're done!

Tips and tricks

Do one nail at a time. This will ensure that you have enough time to make the stripes in each 'petal' before the nail polish dries.
Wipe the toothpick after making each stripe. A ball of polsh will form on the end of the toothpick, it becomes messy and will smudge. Take a tissue and wipe the polish of the tooth pick when there is too much polish on the end.
You don't have to stick to doing one flower on each nail. You can do as many as you like. They can even overlap each other.

If you are inspired by this nail art design, send me some pictures, I would love to see them. Share them on Facebook or Tweet them to me
