Tropical nails tutorial

By on August 18, 2014 in Nail Art , Tutorials

Hi everybody, today I am here with tropical nails tutorial.

I hope you had a great weekend! I went shopping this weekend but didn’t buy any polish :( I did buy a lovely new coat. I haven’t been buying much polish recently as I spent all my money on nail courses, I have done manicure and gel polish course so far.

For the tropical nails I was inspired by an extremely talented nail artist Paulina from Paulina’s Passions.  Love her tropical nails so much! See them here.

My tropical nails ended up quite different to be honest lol.

I started off with Barry M Sugar Apple as a base (see swatches here). I then used acrylic paints to draw the flowers. I topped it all up with Poshe top coat and then Rimmel Matte Pro matte top coat.

See from the video below how I drew the design.
