Step 1 – Draw petals in the corners of the nail

First up, file your nails until they are all similar in length and shape. Once you’re happy, work on one nail at a time and start creating the outline of petals. Dip a nail cuticle stick into your chosen polish colour, and draw two blobs towards the corners of your nail – these will form your petals.  

Top tip: Practice on a piece of paper to get the consistency of the polish right. Too much polish will make your design look messy and the colours may bleed. Too little polish and it will take a few layers to finish your design.

Step 2 – Switch colour and draw another flower

Select a contrasting colour and new cuticle stick and in the middle of your petal ‘blobs’ create the backdrop for another flower.

Step 3 – Draw the last flower

Repeat step 2 in a different colour to close the gap in your nail design.  We've done ours in a bold orange to add a pop of colour to any look.

Step 4 & 5 – The finishing touches

Once your petals are all dry, take a yellow nail polish and create a dot to the centre of each flower. With your dots all dry, finish with a clear top coat to seal in your floral nail art.
