Jazz Up Your Fingertips With This Vintage Rose Nail Tutorial

A simple floral print nail art design, perfect for spring! This eye-catching design will surely bring a vintage look to any outfit.

Step 1:


Start by painting your nails with a nude beige nail polish.

Step 2:

Using a small nail art brush, create a few circles on each nail. The circles don’t need to be perfect.

Step 3:

Using a thinner brush and a dark red nail polish, carefully outline each rose, then do several smaller C-shapes within the circle to suggest petals.

Step 4:

Using the same thin brush and a dark green nail polish, lay the brush down on your nail to make ovalshaped leaves around each rose.

Step 5:

Using the same thin brush and a lighter green nail polish, add some details to the leaves.

Step 6:

Finally, apply a top coat to your nails to seal in the design.
