Daisy Nails Tutorial

When spring began last week on the day I started my new job (woot!), I made sure my nails were ready for both occasions with this cute daisy nail art design that I made up myself.

Want to replicate it? Here's how!

I started out by peeling the Revlon By Marchesa 3D Jewel Appliques in Silk Rosette off my nails. The Color Club Factory Girl nail color underneath was still intact, so I didn't change the polish.

Then, I used a white Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen to draw the flower petals. I gave each full flower about five petals, and I also painted partial flowers at the edges.

Next, I used a dotting tool dipped into yellow polish to create a dot at the center of each flower. If you don't have a dotting tool, you could use a toothpick instead. I originally thought I would stop after this step, but the flowers looked kind of like fried eggs, so I decided to add some leaves.

I used a smaller dotting tool dipped in a green polish and randomly added leaves to the flowers where I thought they looked best.

Finally, I added a topcoat, and voila! Daisy nails complete!
