Step 1: Supplies Needed

- Q-tips

Step 3: Polish Nails

Polish your nails with your favorite color.

Step 4: Make a Stencil

-When nails are dried, grab one strand of hair and fold it.
-With the folded part up, take your thumb and index finger and roll the hair. This creates a small loop (petal) shape on top. Keep twisting to desirable size.

Step 5: Add Acrylic Paint

- Choose an acrylic paint (this is the color of your flower) and squeeze a small amount on your plate.
- Dip your looped hair in the acrylic paint.

Step 6: Stamp Your Nail

With the tip of the loop facing inward, stamp your nail.

Step 7: Add More Petals

- Add paint on loop when needed and continue painting the loops until you have created a flower.
- Add a clear coat finish for longer lasting nails.

Step 8: Enjoy Nails

You now have an amazing flower that you've created. Time to show off.

    Nice technique with the hair!

    You might wanna correct your title (to Petal, not Pedal) and you're missing an "r" in "1 Strand of hair". Oh and don't paint your cuticles, it's bad for them and it looks sloppy.

    Other than that... Have a nice day :)
