TULIPS

1. Polish nails with two coats of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in “Sweet Talker” and let them dry for 5-10 minutes.

2. Using a detail or striper brush and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in “Fuschia Flare” polish, make a tulip shape in the middle of the nail by first drawing a “U” shape on the bottom and a “W” shape on top. Repeat with a second tulip on the side of your nail using Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in “Lightening.”

3. Outline both tulips with Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in “Black Out” using a detail or striper brush and paint on stems too.

4. Using a detail brush and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in “Lickety-Split Lime,” make the leaf shapes and a long, wavy, stem going up the side of the nail.

5. Using the same brush, add touches of highlights in the following order, Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in “Mint Sorbet,” then Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in “White On,” and finally Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in “Black Out,” on the leaves, stems, and tulips to give them dimension.

6. Use Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in “Debu-Tint” to highlight the side of the wavy stem.

7. Apply a top coat like Sally Hansen Insta-Dri to seal and protect your masterpiece.

ROSES

1. Polish nails with two coats of Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in “Lacey Lilac” and leave them to dry for 5-10 minutes.

2. Polish an off centered chevron shape, also known as a curtain French tip using Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in “White On.” This style of French tip is designed with curvy lines and resembles the shape of a curtain on the side of the nail. I only created the curtain on one side of the nail for this look. Start by polishing the left side of a traditional French tip, from the edge of your nail to the center. Polish the remaining white section in a half-moon shape. Repeat on the other side, and this time bring your brush all the way down the very edge of the right side of your nail to form the look of a curtain. Let dry for five minutes.

3. Make the roses on the white tip using a detail brush and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in “Pink Blink.” The rose shapes are created by making a round shape with three or four bumps radiating out. Draw a few partially on the sides of your nails too to make it interesting.

4. Next add the rose petals and give it dimension by using Sally Hansen Nail Growth Miracle Nails Color in “Kiss of Pink.” Start in the center and make a “C” shape. Then add other “C’s” on opposing sides, within the rose shape. Highlight the rose edges randomly as well. Repeat this with Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in “White On.”

5. Using Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in “Mint Sorbet,” create the leaf shapes.

6. Take Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in “White On” and a toothpick/dotting tool and make polka dots down the curtain side of the nail.

7. Finish by applying clear Insta-Dri top coat to seal and add shine.

PANSIES

trg

1. Polish nails with two coats of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in “Lightening” and let them dry.

2. Using a detail brush, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in ‘’Fired Up,” and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in “Fuschia Bling Bling” create the pansies as if they’re growing or hanging upside down from the tip of the nail. This is done by make six polka dots to form a circle and filling in the center with the color. Vary the positioning of the flowers for the best effect.

3. Using a detail brush and Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in “White On” for the orange pansies, and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in “Lightening” for the fuchsia pansies, highlight the center of the flowers.

4. Using the same brush, highlight the very center of the bus with the flower’s original color. So, for an orange flower, draw an orange center.

5. Using a striper or detail brush, polish the stems starting from the tip of the nail and add the leaves.

6. Using a toothpick or dotting tool, add a few random polka dots of Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in “White On.”

7. Apply a top coat of Insta-Dri to finish.
