31DC2015 Floral – Flowers on Warm Gradient

31dc2015floralnails

For this year’s 31 Day Challenge, I’ve been trying to do nail art that is quick but doesn’t look too simple. This design took me less than an hour to do and I did it exclusively with the polish brushes, so I’m really proud of it! I did it a few days ago and unfortunately I can’t remember all the polishes I used, but the colors can be easily substituted.

I began with a three-color gradient of oranges and yellow. I unevenly layered the colors using the brushes and they blended well. I then drew in stems and leaves using Revlon Eclectic and Sinful Colors Envy. So the stems wouldn’t look too thick, I cleaned the majority of the polish off the brush first then made sure to apply little pressure.

For the flowers, I dabbed on Sinful Colors Hot & Sour and ORLY Pink Waterfall to form the petals. As a final touch, I added yellow dots in the centers.
