Flower Nail Manicure

You'll be looking garden fresh with this manicure.

To begin this look, make sure your nails are clean and filed to a rounded tip. Feel free to shape your nails in your preferred style.

Once filed, coat your nails with a base polish. This can be a strengthening base coat or your favorite clear polish. I chose to begin using OPI's Nail Envy after hearing rave reviews online. You can get this polish at any beauty supply like Ulta or Sally Beauty Supply.

Choose a green polish and use the brush as a tool to assist with your green tip. I used NYC's High Line Green. Then use a dotting tool to paint on a stem from this tip for your flower to stand on.

You can get creative with this next step by choosing different colors for your flower. I went with Brucci's Bare Essentials with a center color of Revlon's ColorStay in Delicious.

Using a dotting tool, create base petals. Connect the dots to create a flowered effect. Wait for this layer to dry before moving on.

Again, using a dotting tool you're going to do the same process as before, but within the first flower.

To finish this flower, add a dot of gold nail polish in the center or the "eye" of the flower. I used Essence's Breaking Dawn collection in A Piece of Forever.

If you're feeling especially creative, add leaves to your stem. Again, using a dotting tool add droplets onto your nail and drag the polish for it to connect to the stem.

Are you planning on sprouting some flowers on your nails for the Summer? Did you try out a different flower color combination? Let us know in the comments below!
