Spring Green Leaf Nail Art & Tutorial
Hello everyone! As everything has started to turn green again outside, I thought I would do a fun spring green manicure today! I photographed the steps so you too can have a mini garden on your nails if you desire.
You will need:
-A variety of green nail polishes and white nail polish
-Toothpicks or dotting tools
-Small nail art brushes
I used a spare plastic scraper as a palette for my different greens.
I started each sprig with a thin swish.
Then I layered fronds onto my little fern branches with more small swoops, as usual with my nail tutorials, perfection is not necessary!
Add another layer of fronds in a different shade of green.
To make easy petals or leaves, use a slightly thicker brush and just gently press it down to achieve the simple shape. By using a more transparent nail polish you can get an almost variegated leaf look.
For the final touches I added clusters of white dots with a toothpick. You could also do yellow or pink dots, they will look like tiny flowers!
Fini! That's all folks, add topcoat and you are finished!
