There is just something so classic and feminine about the combination of roses and polka dots. While these prints are constantly seen on the streets and runways, they can also make an appearance on your nails. The even more classic background of black makes this mix and match pattern nail art design work even more perfectly. Keep reading to see how you can create this polka dot and rose nail art design.
To begin, paint all of your nails black with 2 coats of polish an allow to dry.
For the polka dots, take a white polish and place several drops of it on aluminium foil. With a large dotting tool, take some of the polish and place a dot in the middle of your nail near the base. Repeat this to create a line of spaced out dots along the middle of your nail. Next, go along either side of the middle line and create dots placed between the ones you’ve already created. Repeat on the other side.
For the rose buds, place a few drops of darker pink polish on aluminium foil. With the large dotting tool, create random irregular dots on the nail. Keep some space in between these so you have room for the leaves. With a smaller dotting tool, take a mixture of a medium pink and the white polish (or a lighter pink polish) and create curved lines in the darker pink shapes. Think of these curved lines as curved brackets at times or add in a third line to change up some of the roses. With a dark green polish, add little leaves with a small nail art brush. Mix that dark green polish with some white to create a mid-tone green and go over the dark green leaves to add dimension.
Allow the design to dry for 5-10 minutes then apply a top coat.
