Hi everyone! I hope you are having an amazing day (evening). It’s so late here (0:45), but I was determined to finish my roses nail art tutorial for you guys. Maybe some of you will want to try it and Sunday is a perfect time for it.
Those of you who follow my blog for a while know that floral nail art is one of my favorite to make and roses are especially close to my heart. They are so easy to make and they always turn out great, even if you screw things up a little. I honestly thought that making roses was nothing special and everyone knew how to make them, but I got so many questions asking how I make my roses and if I could make a tutorial on them. I thought it was a good idea and I snapped photos, while making my roses the other day.
I chose a pretty mint color as a base for these roses, just because I think pink and mint go together so well :) I also made a glitter gradient on my accent nails, just to keep things interesting ;) The polishes I used will be listed below.
Things you will need:
- Nail polishes: base color (mint or any other color you like) three kinds of pink (light, medium and dark shade), green for the leaves and gold glitter for the accent nail (optional)
- Dotting tool
- Thin nail art brush
- Top coat
Roses Nail Art Tutorial Step by Step:
- Paint your nail with a base color. I recommend using a light shade. The roses will pop more and will be contrasting nicely with your background.
- With your dotting tool make three random circles on your nail with the lightest of the pinks. They don’t have to be perfect.
- With your medium pink start shading the roses. I used my thin nail art brush, but you can also do it with a toothpick, if you don’t have a brush. Start from the middle of the rose and make half circle strokes going towards the outside of the flower.
- Take the darkest shade of pink and do the same as in step 3. Don’t overdo it with the dark pink or your rose will lose the depth. Remember to leave some light pink spaces in between.
- Add leaves and put a good layer of top coat.
It’s quite easy, isn’t it? As for the polishes I used, the mint color is Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet. The lightest of the pink is W7 Powder Pink, the medium is Bellaoggi no. 21, the darkest is OPI Strawberry Margarita. For the leaves I used Catrice Miss Piggy’s BF and the top coat was Seche Vite. The glitter Gradient was made with a beautiful Shimmer Polish Tracy.
Making tutorials is one of those things that I haven’t gotten a hang of yet. I mean it’s just really hard to get consistent looking pictures, put them all together and write a clear description of the steps. I hope you will understand that I am a baby when it comes to tutorials and that you will be gentle with me. I didn’t have any New Year Blogging Resolutions this year, but I think making more tutorials will be one of them. Would you like to see more of them on my blog? Do let me know :)
I really hope that you liked my roses nail art tutorial and that it cleared things up for some of you on how to make these gorgeous flowers :) Have a lovely weekend!
