    This Floral Nail Art Is Perfect For Beginners

    If you can write with a pencil, you can do these nails.

    Here are the tools you'll need:

    - Base coat

    - Pale pink nail polish (we used Essie Fiji)

    - White nail polish (we used OPI Alpine Snow)

    - Dark purple nail polish (we used OPI A Grape Affair)

    - Bobby pin

    - Mechanical pencil

    - Top coat

    - (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 using a clear base coat, paint your nails with two coats of pale pink nail polish.

    Step 2: Grab your white polish and hold the brush at the base of your nail. Swirl the brush out toward the left, right, and up toward the center to create three "petals."

    Make sure you have a minimal amount of polish on the brush. You can always add more if you need.

    Step 3: Dip the ball tip of a bobby pin in purple polish and place the bobby pin at the center of the white "petals."

    This is essentially creating a single polka dot.

    Step 4: Using the tip of the mechanical pencil, drag polish out from the center of the purple to create tiny lines.

    If you need more polish, you can dip the lead of the pencil into the nail polish bottle. Once the art has dried for about 20 minutes, finish with a top coat.

    Step 5: Show up holding a beautiful present at a bridal shower and have these Instagram-able nails.
