Floral nail art

Choose three nail colors. One will act as base (on which the design will be created), one for the petals of the flowers and one for the centre of the flower. Now using a toothpick draw a triangle of three dots on 2-3 different places on your nail. These are the petals of the flower. Once the dots are completely dry, put a white dot in the centre of each of those triangles. Now they will take the shape of flowers. Apply top coat to seal the design.

Gradient nail art
