By the way, to create any yourself, you do not need to be a professional artist. You just need to remember a few tips on how to draw flowers on the nails and practice a little.
Ways to create colors on the nails
Flowers are a common image in nail art that is used almost more than others. Flowers or whole compositions can be drawn, pasted, laid out in the form of an application using real dried petals, etc. In addition, a ready-made stencil from the stamping kit can be used. The options are many.
Beautiful design of nails with flowers will certainly be offered in any salon, but if you wish, and with some skill, you can create flowers on your nails yourself. This can be done in three simple ways, each of which is available for home use and does not require sophisticated adaptations.
Flowers with a needle or toothpick
For this method of creating a flower manicure, in addition to varnish, you will need a needle or a toothpick. You may also need acetone or nail polish remover to adjust if necessary.
- To create a flower on the nails, you must first apply a layer of base varnish or varnish, which will be the background.
- When it dries, you need to put a drop of another varnish on top, take a needle or toothpick, and draw lines from the outer edge of the drop through its middle to the opposite edge step by step, as if drawing a snowflake. Each next line should be carried out with a clean needle or a toothpick, so it is worthwhile to stock up in advance with several devices. It is not recommended to make many lines, as the drop is small and the flower with a lot of petals will not work. Three is enough. As a result, we have on the nails will be a pretty shestilistilnik.
- When it dries, it remains only to draw a core - put a drop of lacquer of a suitable color in the center of the flower.
The easiest way to create a flower on the nails is dots
If you want to make a manicure with flowers with your own hands, you can use a simple device - dots. This method is one of the easiest. The device used for this, called the dots, is a metal stick with balls of different diameters at both ends. Often, for convenience, it is enclosed in a plastic or wooden case. The flower on the nails with the help of such a device is done in stages, easily and simply:
- we dip a ball of smaller diameter into a lacquer of the color that will be the middle of a flower, and put a beautiful, even drop on the nail;
- wait until dry;
- turn the dots over with the other end, dip the second ball in lacquer the colors of future petals and put 5-6 points around the core - these will be the petals. The flower is ready!
The third way is stamping.
Stamping is actually printing a stencil pattern on the nails. The method is simple and affordable, so it is easy to apply, even at home. Due to the large selection of a wide variety of stencils, a manicure with flowers can be changed at least every day. At the same time, the flowers on the nails, you can create a single color and color if you choose an interesting combination of varnishes.
So, to make a floral manicure using the technique of stamping, you need to purchase the appropriate set. It includes a stencil disc, punch, scraper and special lacquer of increased thickness. By the way, stamping varnishes are sold separately, so you can pick up a whole palette so that the design of nails with flowers every time was different.
The technique of stamping can be safely compared with decals. The scheme for creating drawings with its help looks like this:
- a drawing is selected on the stencil disc (do not forget to remove the protective film from the disc!);
- the drawing is applied a thick layer of varnish;
- using a scraper, the lacquer is quickly scraped onto a napkin spreading under the disc (the scraper can be replaced with a plastic card so as not to scratch the disc), while it remains in the recesses of the pattern;
- the plier is taken, gently pressed down on the drawing, so that the remaining varnish is transferred onto its surface;
- thereafter, the strainer is transferred onto the nail with a stamp as a stamp.
Previously, before applying the picture, it is recommended to cover the nails with base or background varnish. So the image will be better printed, and it will look more interesting. Thanks to this technique on the nails, you can create a surprisingly detailed floral manicure with small elements and details.

The color range used in its creation has hardly changed, however, in the last season, not only white or pink colors, but also silver, gray and even gold were used for the tips of the nails. At the same time, matte or light beige varnish is often chosen as the basis.
Classic is great, but sometimes you want to diversify it. In this case, it is worth decorating the French manicure with flowers. The instructions for its creation are the same as the classic ones, but in the end, on top of the dried layers of lacquer, drawings are made in the form of flowers.
