Red and pink blooms are appropriate for any occasion! Try this vibrant floral nail art by Yasmin Duly.

  • Products and Tools

    + Green acrylic paint (you can also use green polish)
    + White nail polish
    + Hot pink nail polish
    + Red nail polish
    + White nail art pen
    + A dotting tool
    + 2 medium clear studs

    SLIDE 1 OF 8
  • Step 1:

    Paint your middle and pinkie nails in hot pink. Then, paint your index and ring nails in white. Wait for these to dry before proceeding to the next step.

    SLIDE 2 OF 8
  • Step 2:

    On the white nails, paint random hot pink spots. They don't need to be completely circular or done with a dotting tool. You can just use the brush from the polish bottle.

    SLIDE 3 OF 8
  • Step 3:

    Using your red polish and your dotting tool, draw lines on the outside and inside of the spots. Try and do as thin lines as possible. (Don't fill the spot with too much red.)

    SLIDE 4 OF 8
  • Step 4:

    Next, you can use your nail art pen to do some white lines in the spots, just on top of the red. Don't do too many and try and keep these quite small. You only need a few.

    SLIDE 5 OF 8
  • Step 5:

    Add a little bit of hot pink lines with your dotting tool onto the spots. Adding a few different colors creates a more detailed flower and makes it look more 3 dimensional.

    SLIDE 6 OF 8
  • Step 6:

    Using your green acrylic paint, or green polish and your dotting tool, draw 2 leaves on each of your flowers. To make these look more realistic, try and draw these leaves bigger at the top and pointy towards the end.

    SLIDE 7 OF 8
  • Step 7:

    Once your manicure has dried, add a top coat to smooth it all out and add shine. While the top coat is wet, add your nail art studs to the top of the Middle and Pinkie. You can do this by adding a little top coat to your dotting tool and using that to place it on the nail where you want it.
