The One With the Sunflower Nail Art Tutorial

9:00:00 AM

Hey all!!  That's right, two posts in a row!  Can you believe it??  That's because today I'm sharing with you a tutorial!  It's been a long time since I created any tutorials.  I really don't know why I stopped.  I always meant to start doing them again but never really got around to doing so.  Well last night I had some time and I wanted to paint, but didn't want to paint my nails.  So, why not doodle on the nail art wheel and create a tutorial??

Today's tutorial is for my sunflower nails which featured Morgan Taylor Rule the Runway!  Let's take a look!

What You Need:

  • Morgan Taylor - Rule the Runway or a taupe polish
  • Acrylic Paints - white, brown, light orange, and yellow.  You can also use nail polish, I find acrylics to be easier and quicker
  • A small dotting tool
  • A small nail art brush
  • Top Coat 
  1. Paint your nail with a base coat of Rule the Runway! by Morgan Taylor or a similar taupe colored polish
  2. With a small dotting tool, create a polka dot pattern on your nail using a white acrylic paint or white polish.
  3. Use a nail art brush and the brown acrylic or nail polish, create the centers of the flower wherever you want on the nail.  For this tutorial, I did one on each end.
  4. Use a small nail art brush and a light orange acrylic or nail polish and create the petals.  I do this by drawing an oval eye shape then fill in the center.  Leave space in between each petal.
  5. With the same nail art brush and a yellow acrylic or nail polish, fill in the empty spaces between the light orange petals.
  6. Clean up your brown center of the sunflower.  Using a small nail art brush, just even out the edge and cover any of the orange or yellow that overlapped the brown.
  7. Finish off with a top coat, and enjoy!
What do you think?  A tutorial you might try?  Should I start making more tutorials??

I would love to get into the world of YouTube but I don't see that happening yet.  That whole process seems very time consuming.  Filming, editing - I give you vloggers so much credit!

Let me know what else you would like to see!!
