Inspired by a pattern from Joules, tutorial

Today I went slightly nautical but still within the floral theme if that makes sense. I was inspired by a pattern from Joules and a picture where they paired this floral print with a striped cushion. So here we go:

Start with a base of navy and white on different nails, I used Isadora ‘Blue Jeans’ on ring, pinke and thumb and OPI ‘Alpine Snow’ on the others.

  1. Outline the flowers with white to make them show up on the dark background.
  2. Fill in with chosen colors, I did one white and one pink. Shading done with others colors in the same spectrum.
  3. Add little dots with green and blue.
  4. Tape the white nails horizontally. Wait until the base is completely dry before adding tape. I use tape aka. nailvinyls.
  5. Paint the navy on top and immediately remove the tape.
  6. Wait a while before you top coat and use a very light hand to not smear the navy.
  7. Clean up with acetone around your cuticles.

Good luck and have fun!
