The choice of materials for a nail art depends on what and how you plan to portray. Simple stylized flowers are comfortable to draw with nail polish, put up in small tubes with a thin long brush. You can try and special markers on a water basis. For complex painting, you will need acrylic colors of different shades, a set of brushes and a plastic palette for mixing colors. Do not forget about the background – it`s easiest to cover your nails with a dense enamel of a suitable shade. It will be required and the top cover with the effect of shine, as well as sequins or crystals for additional decor.
Prepare the nail plate by polishing it with a special bar and applying a layer of the leveling base. Choose a background lacquer. The most effective is the pastel scale or black color – these shades are suitable for any scenic experiments. You can draw flowers and on top of the French manicure by placing a single motif next to the top edge or the cuticle.
First, try to depict a stylized hibiscus. Type on the brush a little red or dark pink varnish and put a dot on the selected place – this will be the center of the flower. Use a fine brush to draw around the five petals in the form of uneven droplets, with the narrow end facing the middle. Take a bottle with a dark green varnish and paint two or three sheets in the form of wide commas. Dry the lacquer. On top of the flower, paint thin strokes with white or silver color. Draw light green veins on the leaves and yellow stamens near the flower. Hibiscus is ready.
If you decided to depict the motif on all your fingers, draw it in stages. First, paint on all the nails a flower, then – leaves, lastly draw stamens and veins. So you do not have to wash and wipe the brushes all the time.
Not a bad idea for beginners – special markers for nails. Draw them a rose – black on white or white on a black background. Cover the plate with enamel and dry it. Take a felt-tip pen and put a short stroke – the center of the future flower. Around him in a circle, draw horizontal strokes more truly – they are petals, they will need 6 or 7. Draw a stem and leaves. Such a rose can be decorated with sequins or a rhinestone, strengthening it in the center.
Having mastered simple tricks, proceed to complex compositions. Try to depict real flowers with acrylic paints. It looks very picturesque chrysanthemum, made in the style of Chinese painting. Cover the nails with black lacquer in two layers and dry it. On the palette, squeeze out the yellow and red colors.
Take a flat brush with a beveled edge, type both colors on it and draw steep curls, sharply lifting the brush from the nail to create the effect of swirling petals. Place one flower at the cuticle, and another – at the very edge of the plate, diagonally. After finishing the chrysanthemum, put on the brush a little green and yellow paint and draw two leaves at the bottom flower and one – near the top. Cover the composition with a top with the effect of ultralusk – so the picture will last longer.
