Rose Nails Tutorial

Hi everyone,
For my first tutorial I am going to show you how to create Rose Nails. (Read the post here).
These nails were really easy to do and I didn't use any specific nail art tools, so these are a great design to try out if you do not own any nail art tools.

 Here are the nail polishes I used: 

Here are the tools I used:

Now, your probably wondering why I put "Big Headed Sewing Pin". The picture below shows the difference between a normal sewing pin and a big headed sewing pin. The trick to this design is using a big pin so that the roses a larger. This makes it a lot easier when you are adding detail to the roses.

Now, on to the tutorial:

Paint your nails with a base coat and then add your chosen base colour.

On a scrap piece of paper add a blob of your chosen flower colour. Then use your big headed sewing pin to create dots on your nail.

On the paper add a blob of your chosen leaf colour. Then, using your hair grip create three small dots on the side of each flower for a leaf.

Continue using your hair pin to create leaves around each dot.

Add another blob of a lighter colour onto your scrap paper. Use your hair pin to create little shapes inside your larger spots.

Wait for your design to dry, and then add a top coat. You can clean up your design after using a brush dipped in acetone or my personal preference, Barry M Nail Polish Corrector.

Here is a round up of all of the steps:

Hopefully this tutorial was useful!
