Are you tired of shelling out a fortune for a fancy pedicure every time you want to spruce up your toenails? Well, I am so today I’m going to teach you how to create your very own nail art flowers yourself – all from the comfort of your own home!
Now, let’s be real here. Who doesn’t love a relaxing pedicure? Those luxurious foot soaks, massage chairs, and magazine-filled waiting rooms are pretty hard to resist.
But let’s face it, the cost can really add up. Specially if what we want is a floral pedicure or fancy nail art designs with flowers!
Nail Art Flowers made Simple
You know? Sometimes those nail technicians just don’t seem to understand your vision. I mean, who wants plain old red toenails when you could have a beautiful bouquet of flowers blooming right on your toes?!
I always get one at the beginning of the summer to get all the winter funk off my toes and start my summer right. Then, for the rest of the summer I usually keep them up myself.
One time I splurged and got a flowers nail art on my toes (I really just wanted to learn their secret).
So here goes a quick tutorial on how to paint flowers on your toes.
How to do flowers on nails without tools?
Who needs fancy tools when you have your own two hands? You can still create beautiful flower designs on your nails even without specific nail art tools.
Start by painting your nails with a base color. Then, use the brush of your flower color to make small dots in a circle shape on your nail.
You can use a toothpick or bobby pin to drag the dots outwards and create petal shapes. I prefer to use a dotting tool because I have lots of them!
Add green leaves with a brush or toothpick, and finish with a clear topcoat.
How do you make a flower pedicure?
Usually, we tend to forget our poor little feet. Especially during the winter and only pay them attention when we take our sandals out, right?
But a little of self-care is really easy and accessible nowadays! A foot soak in the bath, a good sugar scrub and a feet mask is all you need!
I also use a lotion with vitamins to massage legs and feet that really makes a difference.
So after you have give some love to your lovely feet and they are now enjoying a smooth skin.
Let’s give them a cute design the easiest way.
Supplies you’ll need:
- Nail polish in your favorite colors
- A toothpick or dotting tool, and a steady hand (or a friend with a steady hand, if you’re feeling fancy).
First paint your toes. I always do a base coat and then two coats of color. Let them dry completely.
Grab a stylus tool. These are for dry embossing, you can find them at the craft store. Grab another color of polish that will stand out against the color on your toes already.
Next pour out a tiny dab of nail polish onto a plastic cup or something like that. Then dip your stylus tool into your paint and dab 5 dots. I use new paint for each dot.
Next take a tooth pick and drag it from the middle of one of the circles towards the center of your flower.
Do that with all 5 dots and you have a Hawaiian looking flower.
After they dry, put a top coat on for protection and a high shine finish and you are done.
Those of you with little girls…they will love this. You can also use some glitter (they love that, don’t they?). It takes a little practice but it is easy once you get the hang of it.
This will save hundreds in manicures or regular pedicure.
It is a lot easier doing it on someone else’s toes than my own but you get the picture.
