DIY nail art: flowers and stripes

DIY nail art: flowers and stripes

Super pretty and super easy, this DIY nail art look combines two of my favourite things: flowers and stripes. Get the look in just five steps.

N/APolish the nail pink

Hot pink nail polish forms the basis of this cute DIY nail art look! Try Tip Top NailChic Sitting Pretty or Sexy Bikini (left) to get that perfect pink shade.

Form the flower

Dip a toothpick into a white matte nail polish and make five white dots in a circle. Create a second set of five dots in a circle next to the first circle. Allow to set for a few seconds, then drag the toothpick through the bottom of each dot to the centre of the flower.

Create the wisps

The wisps create depth, making your DIY nail art look professional! Use a fine paintbrush or eyeliner brush to paint two horizontal wisps of the hot pink polish halfway across your nail.

Dot it up!


Dip the toothpick into white polish and add small dots on both sides of each flower and along one of the wisps.

Add some glitz and glam

Add a stripe of silver glitter nail polish (like Tip Top Rocky Road, right) underneath the first pink wisp. Dot the centre of each flower with the glittery nail polish as well.

And voila instant DIY nail art glam! For more nail care tips check out 8 don'ts for nail care.
