Nail Art Inspired by the Runway

This nail art design has everything a girl could love: flowers and bling! Follow these simple steps and get the look in minutes.

As I was browsing through Divine Caroline, I stumbled across this design showing nails from the runway of the recent Honor Collection. I love the combination of the daisies and the studs, and I thought that they would work really well in a nail art design. Not everyone likes studs, so this design gives you the ability to choose (and also to limit) the amount of studs you use. It's quick and simple, and you will get a lot of compliments. Guaranteed. Here's how to do it.

1. Paint your nails with a base color. (I used Very Nude by Graffiti Nails.) You can also clean up your cuticles at this step using a wide brush and acetone.
2. Using a thin nail art brush, paint on the flowers in white. You can vary between 5 and 6 petals if you wish, or just do whatever is easiest for you. The simplest way to create petals is to push down with the end of your brush and then flick in toward the middle, leaving a gap in the center.

3. Using a thin brush, paint the center of each flower black. You can also do this with a lighter color if you'd prefer, but I think the black really helps it stand out.
4. Paint on a layer of top coat. While it is still wet apply your rhinestones at the cuticle in a pyramid using tweezers. Finish off your design with a top coat to seal in the studs and protect it from chipping. You're done!

Here's a Pin-able version with all the steps and a finished image. Happy spring!
