Flower Power Nail Designs

flower nail designs
The 1970's hippie boho influence has been huge this summer and is continuing into the fall. I love the wide pants, platform shoes, fringe, floral prints, lace and crochet. I was just a youngster the first go around so I am enjoying the revival!

Here are some fun flower power nail designs to go with the trend. Bright pinky purple is one of my favorite nail polish colors and Orly La Vida Loca made the perfect background for my black, white and silver design.

I started with a base coat then 2 coats of La Vida Loca. 

I started painting the design after the polish was dry to touch
using white acrylic craft paint to make the flower petals.

Next, the petals were outlined with black acrylic craft paint. 

A big black dot of paint created the center of the flower.

Next, I added a few small black dots to each of the nails followed by some silver glitter polish. Pure Ice Dazzle Me worked great because it has various sizes of glitter in it. It was a little bargain I found at Walmart for $2.00!

Next, a coat of clear nail polish. While the polish was wet, a rhinestone was added to each nail. Another coat of clear sealed in the rhinestone. 

There you have it, flower power nails!
