Sunflower & Strawberry nails! | Tutorial

Paint each of your nails with a base colour of your choice, strawberries look nice against a pastel pink but i decided to use my Essie Sweet Talker, a shimmery pastel blue.


 Taking a mustard yellow, if you have a nail art pen or a nail tool, in the corners or sides of the nail make half a flower shape using line strokes.


 For the strawberries, using a red or deep pink make rounded triangular shapes over the nail.


 Fill in the flower petal gaps by adding more or using a different shade of yellow. Once dry, create half moon shapes using a red toned brown for the centre of the flower.


 To make the leafy tops to your strawberries, take a forest green colour and a thin brush. Create a small line for a stalk and continue for 1/4 of the strawberry. Make two more leaf shape lines on either side of the central line to look like draping leaves.


Add small black or darker brown dots in the sunflowers centre to look like seeds and finish with a clear top coat.

How summery are these nails?! Have you tried any sunflower nail art or added strawbs to your nails?
