Hello Everyone! I have a tutorial on the rose nails I posted a few days ago.
Those. I wasn't planning on making a tutorial, for a few reasons.
1) I feel like my roses aren't the best. I kind of just throw together some colors and hope it looks like a flower. Apparently it does.
2) It's hard to show what exactly I've done because they're small and so detailed.
Despite that, I got quite a few requests for a tutorial, so I tried my best!
Few things before we start.
The paintbrush I used for this design and most others is the pink one on the right in the picture below.
I bought it from a beauty supply nearby. That brush, and the other three in the picture are cut down significantly from their original width. I used Robin Moses' video to cut them down.
Last thing, I used pink for the roses but this goes for any colors really. Just a chart to show you the colors I used. Basically you need to create 4 shades of the color you are using.
Hopefully this will make it less confusing.
Okay here we go.
I hope this is clear enough.
Step One: Paint the outline of the rose with the darkest shade. (I used pink #4 for this)
Step Two: Fill in the petals with the second lightest shade (pink #2)
Step Three: Use your second darkest shade and paint the outside of the petals (pink #3)
Step Four: Paint in the very inside of the petals with your lightest shade. (pink #1)
Step Five: (Slightly optional) Use white in very inside of petals as well.
Step Six: Use the lighter green to paint the stem and leaves.
Step Seven: Use the darker green and paint over the lighter green.
Step Eight: Add other leaves and roses to your nails! Whatever you're comfortable with!
I hope this made sense! Let me know if you try this!
Thanks for reading!
