Vintage Nail Look: Flowers and Pearls
Here’s another one of my favourite nail looks from the past. When I first started creating nail art, I practiced by drawing lots of freehand flowers using a dotting tool or a toothpick. I learned that anyone can create cute and professional-looking designs just by placing dots in different patterns.
For this look, I applied a base of one of my favourite pastel pinks, Something Sweet by China Glaze. Next, I added the flowers on the ring and pinky fingers using OPI’s The Lifeguard Makes Me Blush, the green leaves with MAC’s Peppermint Patti, and the yellow dots with China Glaze’s Lemon Fizz. I also added some yellow half pearls to give the look a classy, vintage feel.
