Nail Art: A Closer Look on Flowers

Forgive me if I haven't been doing nail art for quite awhile. If you are already following the Simply Rins Facebook Page, you might remember one of my status messages wherein I said one of my nails broke really bad. It broke on the side, almost at the middle while I was fixing the zipper of my luggage. I was forced to cut it really short until the tear reaches the nail tip. Then, I had to wait for it to grow back to a decent length before I do some nail painting.

The length and shape is not yet how I'd like them but that's one of the good things about nail art. You can actually create a design that could camouflage or enhance the shape of your nails!

I decided on a simple floral design that is bold and feminine at the same time. I named this nail design, A Closer Look on Flowers because it is as if you're magnifying a flower on your nails. Hopefully, I have achieved my goal.

The inspiration for this nail design came to me while I was watching a rerun of Private Practice on TV a few nights ago. I saw a throw pillow with very big flowers that looked like stencils. I figured it would look great on nails. I also thought the design would work with the nail I was nursing.

Big flowers on my nails.

I used 2 coats of OPI Fly, the same one that I used for the Heart Patches Nail Art. I always find this a very fun color.

For the flowers, I decided on a very light yellow. I used acrylic paints and a small stripper nail art brush for this design.

Oh, and perhaps you've noticed my skin darkened. After 3 out of town trips that had me under the sun, it couldn't be helped. Sunblock helped but apparently, it did not prevent a tan.

Looks like stencils.

How I did it:

Painting this floral nail art is quite easy. First, place a dot on where you would like the center of your flower would be on your nail. I prefer to place the center in random to create different point of views. But if you like uniformity, go ahead and select a center that would be the same on all your nails. Then use a small stripper nail art brush to paint the petals. For the stencil effect, make sure you no shape would touch each other.

This design looks lovely up close and from a distance.

I am not particularly proud of my color combination here but I think the design has great potential for other colors. Needless to say, this would probably look gorgeous on black and white. Come to think of it, is there a nail design that would not look good with black and white?

Hopefully, you liked this floral nail art design. I'll be starting on Christmas nail art ideas really soon. I'm actually excited to challenge my imagination. :)

  7. Very pretty, I like the black & white idea with maybe some red accent. I always find that B&W looks especially good with just a tiny splash of red somewhere, maybe the center of the flower could be red...oh, now my mind is creating:)
