Nail art is a great way to present your nails in a cute and stylish way. It can make you stand out from the crowd and it’s an easy way to express yourself through your nails. Rose nail art is especially popular because of its elegance, softness and femininity. After all, who doesn’t like roses?
Of course, there are other ways to do rose nail art but here we’re going to focus on doing step by step roses. This is because we want you to be able to follow this tutorial easily – we don’t want any confusion – and so that everyone can learn how! In case you’ve been looking for a complete guide, this article will definitely give you what you need as far as dotting tools, colors, and other supplies. So if you’re ready, let’s get started!
Step One: Start by painting your nails a pale pink color. If you prefer, you can use a peachy pink instead of really light pink. Let the paint dry completely before moving to Step Two.
Step Two: Add a few coats of white nail polish to one finger on each hand. You will be using this finger as your guide when placing the rose decals on your nails.
Step Three: Cut out a couple of flower decals from the sheet. The easiest way to do this is to find a paper trimmer and cut them out-it’s much than trying to cut them with scissors.
Step Four: Grab a piece of clean water with a gloved hand or finger. Dip the decal into the glass for about five seconds to get it wet, then slide it off onto your bare nail. Be careful not to use too much water on the paper, you don’t want excess water dripping onto your skin while trying to place this decal on your nail.
Step Five: Once you have placed all of the rose decals where you want them, let them dry for about two minutes before adding topcoat. You don’t want them to smudge while applying topcoats! I like using Julep’s Freedom Polymer Top Coat (my favorite). There you have it! You now know how to do rose nail art in five easy steps, and you can add this design to any color! Don’t be afraid to try new colors or play with different shapes (hearts? Squares?) when using the decals.
