Make Freehand Nail Art Flower Designs for Beginners

Edited by Kara, Eng

Hi, you're watching VisiHow. My name is Kara, and in today's video I will show you how to do the flower design using nail polish and a needle.

Steps

  1. 1
    I just need a couple bright colors, which in my case are blue and red nail polish
    .
    It doesn't have any sparkles, but it's shiny. I will also need something for the background. I'm using the white nail polish, but you can use any other color. I'm also using golden sparkles, a needle, some pads, and nail polish remover and Q-tips just in case. So, let's start.

  2. 2
    What I'm doing is I'm creating a background for my flowers
    .
    This color is barely noticeable, but we need to have some base for the following work. It's just not going to sit as well if you try to make flowers on your bare nails.

  3. 3
    I think I should go with two layers just to give it a good texture
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    Let's blow so they dry a little faster
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    Let's close the nail polish since we're not going to need the white one anymore
    .
    Let's put it away.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    So now what I'm going to do next is I'm going to take these two nail polishes at once
    .
    You can go for any other color if you want. I'm choosing these two guys. Let me zoom in so you can see it better. I'll need to work really fast with these two before they dry off.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    Let's start with the smallest finger
    .
    I need to put some drops - just tiny little drops, not too big. One, two and three.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    And the same thing with the other color
    .
    One, two and three. I'm putting it right next to the blue one.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    Get my needle
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    And from the center, I draw a line out
    .
    I need a napkin to wipe my needle off. And the same thing here - from the center, I draw a line out.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    I can dip it in the blue color as well and draw a line out
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    That's sort of a triangle version of a flower
    .
    I can show you a different version where you make the drops bigger. Then your flower, of course, will be bigger too.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    I'm making thicker drops this time
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    And red on the outside
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    So dip the needle into the red and draw a line
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Let's do it on this finger
    .
    Let's put the drops closer to each other and you'll see what you can make out of it.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    Take the red one and do one, two and three
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    Dip in the red, and draw a line
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    You can add to the leafs on the flowers
    .
    After the three, let's go with five. One, two, three, four and five.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    And we can put the red one in the center
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    Let's see what we can do from that
    .
    One, two, three, four and five. This looks more like a star, but we can shape it into a flower. This happens. I just put too much red.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    And let's do something here
    .
    Let's do the five leafs. One, two, three, four and five.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    One, two, three, four and five
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    And I can put some red in the center - just a tiny bit this time
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    So from this, let's drag it out here, here, here, here and here
    .
    And so far, the thumb turned out to be the prettiest flower!
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    If you want to alter the shape, you can add some lines with the needle
    .
    It also gives it an interesting combination of colors. If you can see, the blue has some spots with purple and red. I think it's quite nice
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  27. 27
    If you want to redo everything else, you're welcome
    .
    These were kind of strange flowers I would say. This one is the prettiest so far. So next time I will know, and I will choose this one.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  28. 28
    I'll just add a hint of shininess to my flowers
    .
    Just a tiny bit.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  29. 29
    In the center, like this
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  30. 30
    This one looks strange, so I can shape it with my needle
    .
    Just drag the golden polish around the shape. It's not perfect, but I was experimenting.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  31. 31
    This is the flower design I would go for
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
