Floral nail designs are pretty, but what about having real (or realistic-looking) flowers on your nails? There are a few ways you can achieve this stunning look that goes well with any outfit.
Read on to check out some dried flower nail art ideas and how to achieve it!
#1 Dried flower nail stickers
This is the easiest method to achieve the dried flower look! Simply paint on the base coat, paste the flower stickers and then finish with a top coat. You can purchase the nail stickers online like this Dried Flower Nail Art Decor ($0.69).
#2 Real dried flowers
This will create the most realistic dried flower look but will take a bit of patience! After applying your base coat, press the dried flower on your nail or false nails while the polish is still wet. Use a small tool like the back of a sewing pin to press the flower down firmly against your nail.
Once it's dry, apply two thick coats of clear nail polish to make sure the flower is secure. Make sure to wait for the first coat to dry before applying the second one. This will feel like it's taking forever, but the results are worth it!
You can either buy dried flowers from a plant nursery near you and cut it up into small pieces or look for small pieces of flowers meant for nail art like this DIY Mixed Dried Flowers Nail Art Decoration ($2.65).
#3 Paint it on
Unless you have mad skills, you will probably need the help of a professional nail artist to get this look. The advantage of this method is that you can take inspiration from any flower design, colour or shape to create your own original design. Gather a few pictures of real dried flowers and dried flower nail art that you like and show them to your manicurist!
