Hey everyone! How are you all doing today! Here I have an easy idea to do colorful nail art for summer. Summer calls for bright and vibrant colors. So I used fun bright colors to do the gradient design. I got this wheel of Dried Flowers from Amazon and used the same in this nail art. Using dried flower is an easy way to do nail art as no hand painting is needed. Keep reading to see how I did this fun Nail Art Design.

How I did the Nail Design
Start by applying base coat on the nails and let it dry. Using a base coat polish prevents staining and protects natural shine of your nails. It also helps the manicure last longer. Apply white polish on the nails and wait for it to dry before doing the gradient effect. Having a white polish before doing an ombre helps the colors pop and spread evenly.
Apply peel off base coat on the skin around your cuticle for easy clean up. I got these cool Sponge Applicators from eBay which made the work so easy. It has long wooden handle which is very helpful in applying the colors. Apply three nail polish colors next to each other on the sponge and press it onto white nails. You may need to do this step multiple times till you get full coverage. I did three layers. Peel off the excess polish on the skin using a tweezer. (The polish will peel off easily as we had applied a peel off base coat)
Wait for all the nails to dry completely, then seal the gradient base with a layer of top coat. Cover each nail with a layer of Sinful Colors Green Ocean. To apply dried flower on the accent nail, add little top coat near the cuticle and pick a flower using a rhinestone picker or a dotting tool slightly dipped into clear polish. Then place the flower onto the nails. Gently press on the flower to secure it.
Add a bit more clear polish on the accent nail and on all other nails, insert beads and rhinestones. Seal the whole design with Top Coat and you are done! See the Video Tutorial below for a clear idea on how to do this Nail Art.
