A Floral How-To By Zoya Nail Polish

DIY Floral Accent Nail 

Did you absolutely adore this floral mani we posted a few weeks ago? We're going to show you how to get the look, step-by-step! 

What you'll need...

- Zoya Nail Polish in Demi
- Zoya Nail Polish in Megan
- Zoya Nail Polish in Mitzi
- Zoya Nail Polish in Suvi
- Zoya Nail Polish in Purity
- A good dotting tool (or bobby pin)
- A thin brush or toothpick

Step 1

Select which nail(s) you want as your floral accent and paint all other fingers with Zoya Nail Polish in Demi. Use Zoya Nail Polish in Purity as the base for
accent nail(s) of choice. Now for the how-to on the accent nail!



Step 2

When the base of your accent nail is completely dry, use a dotting tool or small brush to create the flower base using Zoya Nail Polish in Megan. You're not going to make the dots completely circular. Instead, make them a little irregular, to get more of a flower shape.

Step 3

When the dots have dried, use a skinny brush or toothpick to make a little "C" shape in the center of each flower with
Zoya Nail Polish in Demi. Next, outline two edges of each flower as shown to the left. You only need a little bit per flower!

Step 4

Once the outline of the flower is dry, you'll be ready to make the leaves to the flower. Take your brush (make sure it's clean) and dip it into Zoya Nail Polish in Mitzi. Choose a side of each flower and make two skinny triangles right next to each other to create the leaves - it's easy!


Step 5

Finally, once the lighter green has dried, you will put two lines in each little triangle to give the leaves some dimension!

There you have it! A simple, and super cute floral mani. You can do so much with this look to make it your own. Switch up the colors, play with designs, add more colors to the flower - have fun, be creative... and don't forget to share your looks with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!
