This is my second floral freehand nail design. Yes, I'm practicing. My mother loves flowers on her nails and I know she'll like the idea that I am trying to be comfortable with floral designs. I simply called this nail art, White Flowers.
White flowers nail art by Simply Rins
Honestly, I had no nail design in mind when I chose my base color. As I looked into my unused nail polishes, I spotted a bottle that my mother gave me as a gift a few months back. It was a deep red color and since I adore practically any shade of red, I didn't think twice of wearing it.
This is Deborah Lippmann Bitches Brew.
I painted the white flowers with acrylic paint. I thought of using a dotting tool for the flowers but I was feeling professional (Ha! Ha!) so I decided to freehand the design. I painted irregular shaped petals to give the flowers some depth.
Did you know that colors of flowers have corresponding meanings? If you are into details, you may want to know these before sending flowers. For example, in courting a girl, guys should stay away from yellow flowers as it represents friendship and this is certainly not your intention. However, if you are already friends and would like to take it to the next level, you may combine yellow and red flowers as they symbolize that you are falling in love with her. Red of course is a color that everyone (I think) knows that pertains to love.
Pink flowers are also associated with romance but it's more of a feminine color that is perfect to give to your partner on a casual occasion. When I was younger I received blue flowers (roses actually) that I absolutely loved. Unfortunately, I color faded as it was only dyed to become blue. To see the color fade was saddening. In general, blue flowers means peace and trust. You may give this to your partner as a sign of intimacy.
And then there are white flowers that symbolize purity of intentions. This is the perfect color to give to your partner on the start of your relationship. If you combine white and red flowers, you are saying that your relationship is long-lasting and deeply bonded. This is the reason why I would love to have only red and white flowers on my wedding day. It is the perfect combination, right?
Perhaps this design would have been more appropriate during Valentine's Day but I'm feeling romantic lately so I decided to go with this nail design.
Have you received flowers lately? I'm being cheesy so do share your romantic moments if you like. :)
