Flirty & Floral Pastel Nails

What's up, guys?! I'm back with another nail art tutorial for you all. I really love doing these. They're fun, easy, and it seems like you guys really like them too. Today's nails weren't really inspired by anything but boredom. I usually do recreations of other manis I've seen, but today was really just experimentation. Let's dive in!

What you'll need:

Step 1: Apply your base.

Step 2: Paint all your nails with 2 coats of white polish.

Step 3: Saturate a corner of your sponge in blue polish. Dab the polish in select spots on each nail. Make sure to dab the same spot twice, if the color is very light.

Step 4: Repeat step 3 with your orange and coral polishes.

Step 5: Dip the smaller side of your dotting tool into the black polish. Stipple on flower shapes around each color patch. 

Step 6: Paint a corner of your sponge with your white polish. Dab lightly over any spots that are too dark or where you want more of the base color to show.

Step 7: Apply a matte top coat, and clean around the edges of your nail.

Step 8:  Dot the nail glue down the center of your ring finger. Apply 3 nail studs in a cross pattern, with the top and bottom studs being the same color, and the middle stud being a different color.

Step 9: Coat your ring finger in another swipe of matte top coat.

Kiss, Kiss.
