( Review of Nail paints in my last post)

How to do it :

  1. Paint the nails with the pastel green color. If the paint is not very Opaque , like mine wasn’t , First use white nail paints and then top it with the green paint . It would make the color pop.PhotoGrid_1458407667253
  2. Put striping tapes as shown in the picture.
  3. Paint to the last tape with the silver color and then remove the tapes asap ( If the tapes sit with the paint for too long the lines would come uneven )
  4. Top it with a Top coat to give it a glossy finish (optional)q

  3. Now take the toothpick or the dotting tool to make dots.( imp tip : If using toothpicks , rub the tip of the toothpick on a rough surface to make its point a little blunt so as to be able to make dots)
  4. To make the flower, make a dot , then take another color to draw dots around it . You can do this on all the nails or only on the ring finger nail leaving all other empty or on three nails leaving two blank like i have done .
