Polka-dot and Roses Nail Tutorial!

29 August 2013




Hey lovely's, i've got a new nail tutorial to share with you. I no everyones starting to get into the feel of autumn with all the new season trends but i love summer and want to drag it out as long as possible, so i've done a pretty summery nail design. I thought i would try and do some roses and then i decided to mix it up a bit and add some polka-dots as well for a fun cute look. 



What i used-
White base- BarryM, matt white,
Green base- Topshop, Gone fishing (sorry forgot to put in pic)
Pink rose colour- Essie, Maddison ave-hue,
Rose detail- Models own pen in Pastel purple,
Leaves- Models own pen in Pastel green,
Top coat- Nails Inc, Kennington caviar.
Nail dotters (could also use rubber end of a pencil, end of a hair grip or end of a make up brush to make dots)

If you don't own any nail art pens you can get the same effect using a toothpick dipped in nail polish to do some of the rose detail and the leaves.


Step one-
Paint two coats of the white polish on the middle and ring finger, paint the rest with two coats of the green polish.


Step two- 
Using the large sized end of a nail dotter, dot white nail varnish onto the nails with the green base.


Step three-
To make the rose shape use the brush or a nail dotter to make blobs on the nail where you want the flowers they don't have to be neat circles slightly odd shapes will look more realistic.


Step four-
Using the smaller end of a nail dotter (could also use a toothpick) dipped into the white polish make small swirly c shapes inside the roses to look like petals.


Step five-
Using the purple nail art pen do the same thing again, make a few smaller swirly c shapes inside the rose.


Step six-
To draw the leaves on use the green nail art pen to draw a couple of triangles coming out of the roses. 
When the nails are dry add a topcoat and ta da, the look is complete!

The finished look...


I hope you like this tutorial, the roses are really simple to do when you brake it down into steps. I hope it inspires you to have a go for yourself these are just the colours i fancied but it would look great with all sorts of colours, and remember if you don't have a nail dotter or any nail pens, things you can find around the house such as toothpicks and ends of make up brushes will work just as well.
