NOTW: Gingham and Flowers

This week's nail tutorial looks complicated when in fact, it is very easy to do!! I incorporated a three-petalled flower on my ring fingers and a gingham pattern on all the tips of my nails.  Here's what it looks like:

1. Start with a coat of clear base coat and leave to dry.

2. Apply two coats of a pink nail polish to the tips of all the nails, making sure you allow enough drying time between the applications.  I used an Italian pink by Eugene Perma.

3. Next, to start working on the gingham pattern, you will need a white striper polish and a gold one and proceed to make the lines as in the picture sequence shown below.  I used Golden Rose Paris Nail Lacquer no. 41 as my gold polish

4. For the flower, use a detailing brush to paint three little petals. I used Oil of Olay Nail Lacquer in 678 Bronze Reflection.

5. When the flower dries, it is time to add the details. Start by dotting a few dots in the centre of the flower where the petals join with the same gold polish you used for the gingham pattern.  Subsequently, proceed by making two lines coming from between the petals, one on each side of the middle petal with the white striper polish.  Finally, add a few dots with the pink nail polish near these white lines.

6. Seal your design with a coat of clear glossy top coat and you're done!
