Daisies nail art design by Simply Rins
Model hands: My Nanay (mother)
On my Nanay's, I painted daisies on her nail tips. I used acrylic paint for everything. I didn't want a bright yellow color for the center of the flower so I opted for a yellow orange shade.
I did her toes too:
So why daisies? It was a spur of the moment thing, actually. I just wanted something that will pop out with our chosen base color. Nanay suggested something white but I figured it needed at least another color for the nail design to come alive. Hence, the daisies. I thought it was a perfect idea.
Nanay and I used 2 coats of Milani Teddy-Bare for our base color. Looks like mocha to me.
Yes, you're looking at my nails here.
After I finished painting Nanay's nails, I proceeded to do mine. I wanted us to have the same design so I still painted daisies. But to make it a little different, I painted the daisies in random. I was also able to capture this design in photo as it unfolds.
Daisies Nail Art Tutorial:
Before we proceed to the tutorial, I'd like to share with you how my palette looks like:
This is just white paper. I use water to get the consistency I like.
1. I painted the petals first using white acrylic paint. I painted different sizes too. Paint any size of depending on your preference. Personally, I found it easier to stroke the brush with the tip pointing outward then move towards the center of the flower.
2. I randomly painted very light brown strokes over the white petals for highlight. This will give the daisies a little depth. This step is optional if you like to just have the petals on pure white color.
3. Then I added the center of the daisies with a yellow orange shade. These are oblongs rather than circles to create an almost sideview perspective.
4. Finally, for further details, I added a few brown dots on the center of the daisies. Seal your design with your preferred top coat. I used Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat on this design.
This has become one of my favorite color combinations. Here's a look on the finished daisies nail design on my hands:
Daisies are a symbol of purity, innocence, and simplicity. As per reading, daisies actually belongs to the Sunflower family. Makes sense as their petals are very much similar. I personally like them because of their daintiness.
I also did my toes:
And here's my traditional photo of matching hand and footsie:
Have you ever tried something like this with your mom or a friend perhaps? I wonder if I can convince Nanay to wear cartoons on her nails. :)
