Nail Art: Sunflowers

My favorite cuticle oil inspired me to do a sunflower nail art design. Each bottle contains small sunflowers that provide natural and healthy ingredients into the nail treatment. I was well satisfied with how this nail design turned out. I am not so sure though if I was able to capture the obvious that the flowers are sunflowers.

Base color is Nyx Deep Brown in 2 coats. The name of this nail polish describes the color perfectly. I thought the dark brown background would be a good contrast to the yellow color of the sunflower. Don't you just love how yellow pops on a brown background? I'm thinking a dark green would look great as a base color as well for this sunflower nail art.

The flowers were painted freehand using acrylic paints.

I hand painted the sunflowers on my nail tips. I really believe this kind of nail designs makes my nails look longer. There are 2 sunflowers per nail, one smaller than the other.

I was able to capture how I created this sunflower nail art design on video. I'll be posting the nail art tutorial on a separate post. Consider this a teaser. :) How did you like this nail art?

    Hi, nail loopy!
    When I started freehand nail painting, I barely create floral designs simply because I couldn't draw flowers well. But with practice, I'm sure you'll be able to paint flowers on your nails the way that you will be satisfied with. :)
