Spring is here, which means it’s time to flaunt florals. This detailed, easier-than-it-looks design by nail artist extraordinaire Miss Pop is made using real (!) dried flowers, perfect for sprucing up your hand sitch while keeping a little plant magic at your fingertips. You’ll need a few specialized items, including a bonding top coat, a wax pencil for petal placement, and, of course, teeny-tiny dried flowers specifically purposed for nail art, which can be found on Amazon (just search “nail art dried flowers”) or at any beauty supply store. Read on for the how-to!
1. Gently file your nails into a tapered oval.
2. Use an exfoliating cuticle treatment (such as Deborah Lippmann Cuticle Remover, $20, sephora.com) to remove dry, dead skin. Use a cuticle pusher to remove the loosened cuticle.
