Spring Floral Nail Art

FeaturedContest Winner
Nail Art is a big fashion in my country right now, and although I am not very good at it, I like to try it from time to time.

I used purple nail polish as base for my nail art and painted the flowers with acrylic paints...I know it may sound weird but it really works! All you have to do is adding top coat at the end to protect the whole decoration.

As you can see, it is not perfect but I hope you like it, and you'll probably be able to make it better than mine! :)

Step 1: What you need

  • Base coat
  • purple nail polish
  • top coat
  • blue, white and yellow acrylic paints
  • small flat paint brush
  • very small round paint brush or nail dotter
  • nail buffer

Step 2:

Picture of
First of all apply the base coat on your nails and let it dry.

Apply your purple nail polish and let it dry too.
You may need more than one layer of nail polish, it depends on how bright your color is after the first layer. Remember that it must be exactly like the color of your nail polish bottle to be perfect.

Once the nail polish has completely dried, use the buffer to rub it gently and make it matt.
This will help you to have a better effect when you use the acrylic paint. Don't worry if it seems ugly now, the ruined effect will disappear after you apply the top coat at the end.

ps: I know that my nail polish seems red instead of purple, I thought the color was as it is in reality but later I noticed that the pictures changed the color, I am sorry :(

I have really short nails. Will it still work?

This depends very much on how small you can paint the flowers...maybe you can just paint a few petals on some angles, it would still look nice! My nails are not very big either so you should be able to do this too :)
Qui com'è andata?

does the acrylic paint come off with regular nail polish remover? i'm guessing it does since you went ahead and painted your nails with actual paint, anyways, haha
lindarose92 (author)  lnorooz11 months ago
haha yes, actually acrylic paint would come off even with water, that's why you need to apply top coat on it :)
Awesome idea! going to try :)
