Nail Art: Fun With Flowers

Summer heat is becoming more and more unbearable here. People are spending more time in the malls to cool off and those that want to enjoy the heat goes to the beach for a much needed vacation. As for me, I decided to stay in my new art studio that I am still fixing and do more nail art designs using summer as an inspiration.

A few months ago, I looked into my stash and realized that I only had a few bright shades. I felt sad. I felt my collection reflected my mood. Did that mean that I was gloomy for a long, long time? To change that, I decided to get more cheerful colors. I figured it was perfect to create summer inspired nail designs, like this one:

I wanted something bright, colorful, and cheerful. Initially, I thought of creating an abstract design but I guess I'm still in the floral mode.

For my base color, I chose OPI Did It On Em from the Minaj Collection. It's an apple green shade that I really like. Texture was superb, and so was the application. I applied 2 coats.

I hand painted the design using acylic paints and a detailing nail art brush.

I had 2 colors in mind to wear with Did It On Em -- purple and dark pink. I thought that these colors and the base color would contrast one another perfectly for each one to pop. In the end, they didn't disappoint me.

To get the colors to stand out more, I decided to add black outlines. It is because of this decision that I also chose to paint simple flowers. I painted one big flower and a small one for each nail. I alternated the colors of the flowers between purple and dark pink. For some reason, my dark pink looks red in the pictures. I painted the flowers in random places just to make the design more interesting.

I painted the black outline first because I find it easier to fill in shapes than to add outlines after painting a design. I then painted a coat of white acrylic before painting the colors (purple and dark pink). The white layer is important if you want your colors to appear bright and the white paint can help achieve opacity faster.

If you want a tutorial for this nail design, please let me know through the comment section. I was having a lot of fun doing this that it slipped my mind to do a tutorial. My bad. :(

Also, I've been receiving a few emails asking me if I really do nail art on both my hands or do I use a model for this nail art blog. Instead of replying via email, I think it is best to answer it here. I paint my own nails and I do my own nail art on both my hands. There are occasions that I do nail art on my sister and my mom. I always mention that in my posts if I feature the nail art I did for them.

I hope this parting shot can help wipe the doubts:

    Try to load the tip of your brush with a good load of paint so that when you press your brush down, the paint will spread a little before you lift it. That might help. :)
