    Here are the tools you'll need:

    - Base coat

    - Black matte nail polish (we used Knock Out Flatte Black)

    - Top coat (we used Seche Vite)

    - Striper brush

    - Light pink nail polish (we used Essie Cascade Cool)

    - Dark pink nail polish (we used Deborah Lippmann Whip It)

    - Lime green nail polish (we used China Glaze Trebel Maker)

    - Nail polish remover

    - Cotton ball

    - (optional) Pre-glued nails (we used Patricia Inspire nails)

    You can paint directly on your natural nail, or you can use pre-glued nails, which can make art much easier. Follow these instructions if you're going to use pre-glued nails.

    Step 1: After painting a clear base coat, apply two layers of matte black nail polish.

    Or you can use regular black polish and use a matte top coat. It's up to you!

    Step 2: Dip a striper brush into the top coat to paint three vertical, shiny lines over the nail.

    It's all about getting that texture.

    Step 3: With the darker pink, use a small amount of polish on the brush and dab the top left and bottom right corners of your nail, creating misshapen blobs of pink.

    It sounds weird, but trust us on this.

    Step 4: Dip the striper brush into the light pink and draw small lines in the dark pink areas to create the look of petals.

    The lines can be curved, straight, long, short, or whatever you feel! There's no right or wrong here. Once you're done, clean off the striper brush with nail polish remover and a cotton ball.

    Step 5: Dip the striper brush into the green polish and paint small lines along the edges of the pink to create "leaves."

    Tiny green swipes of nail polish is all this takes. Make sure there's not much paint on the striper brush when you apply the green.

    Step 6 (optional): Use top coat just at the tip of your nail where the pink flowers are.

    To keep the matte and glossy texture of these nails, it's best to go without top coat over the entire nail.
