3 Step Freehand Flower Nail Art Tutorial

Hi guys! Tonight's post is a super quick tutorial on how to do super quick flowers in 3 simple steps!  When I first got into Nail Art, I thought I would never be able to draw flowers on my nails, I couldn't be more wrong, they're so easy so if you are the same as me, then keep on reading; this post is for you.

I'm not saying they're perfect, but for flowers they really don't have to be.  I love how they look!  There are loads of ways to do flowers (more tutorials coming up!), this is just the first way I learned.

Before you start, make sure you have everything you need;

Your favourte Base and Top Coat
White for the detail; Barry M - White
Glitter & Metallic for an optional Gold Nail; nails inc - Chelsea Bridge Road & OPI - All Speakly And Gold.

You will also need a detail brush - and that's the only tool you need!

I know I said this is 3 steps, obviously this is not including this step because you can paint on a base colour of your choice like I have or you can leave it blank!

Step 1, Using your White polish and detail brush, start off by painting two C shapes in the middle of your nail.  One facing left like C and the other facing right like )

Step 2, Still using your White polish and detail brush, now paint four C shapes round the original 2.

Step 3, STILL with the same White polish and detail brush, paint five C shapes round the previous 4.

To achieve a design like mine below, just repeat the 3 steps as many times as you like on your nail and add your matte top coat!  For the pinkie nail, I painted it white and for the index finger, I painted one coat of metallic gold and gold glitter, they're both topped off with a coat of Seche Vite and gold studs.

Please let me know if you try this design out by using the hashtag #LookSpangley on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, alternatively you can tag me in the picture - I'd love to see!
