Anyway...on with the tutorial. Today we are doing pink and white dot flowers on a very dark red background. It is something that I think all of you can do regardless of your skill level. I did them on ABS nails again. (Next week I'll do something on my own hands.)
First you apply a base coat and then two coats of the color you have chosen for the design. I chose a dark red called Heart of Africa. It is almost burgundy but not quite.
This color makes the pastel pink and white flowers pop off the nail. I used acrylic paint for the flowers this time.
I put the center on first and dotted the pedals on around them. For the buds I dotted three-four white dots close together and then a pink dot on top of them.
I used China Glaze's Strong Adhesion Base Coat and OPI's Top Coat. For the foundation color I used China Glaze's Heart of Africa. For the flowers I used Americana's Poodleskirt Pink and Delta Ceramcoat's White. I also used a dotting tool.
They are simple flowers, but they are pretty.
Would you like to see flowers done with a brush or a rainbow next week?
