Floral Glitter

Glitterfloral edited 1

Hey everyone! It’s been a couple of weeks since the last tutorial tuesday, and you’ve been missing it a tonne, I’m sure. This week’s tutorial is another one where you’ll have to head over to Divine Caroline to see the steps¬†for this glitter floral design. If you would prefer to stick to the original colours of the dress in the article then go ahead, you definitely dont have to follow the same colour scheme I did.

I used China Glaze’s Liquid Leather and White on White for the base and flowers. I did use black acrylic paint for this because I didn’t want to smear the petals with my top coat. The acrylic also gives me more control of my brush strokes.

To create this look, I started with the base black polish then used the white to create random semi floral shaped blobs on my nails. Since I was going to be defining each petal with the black, I wasn’t too worried about how the white looked at this step. Then, using my La Cornielle 18/0 liner brush, I used the black acrylic paint to make a TON of almond shapes over the white.
