Nail Art: Lav 025 Chinese New Year Nail Art - Plum Blossom 2012

Dear Readers

I hope it is still not too late to share with you my simple nail art design for Chinese New Year. I named it plum blossom. This design is very simple and can be drawn by anyone who knows how to use a doting tool.
As I just bought some Acrylic Paint and a Nail Doting Tool, I wanted to try them out. I am quite pleased with the result.

If you are free, you can check out my previous CNY nail designs here and here.






The items used are:
1. OPI Base Coat
2. OPI Top Coat
3. Revlon Nail polish - No 440 Siren (I chose this bright orangy color as my background color to bring out the CNY cheer)
4. Nail Doting Tool
5. Acrylic Paint - Titanum White , Lemon Yellow and Burnt Umber



This is the Nail Doting Tool that I bought
Steps
1. Base Coat (1x)
2. Revlon Polish (2x) - let 1st coat dry before applying 2nd coat
3. Use the nail doting tool (bigger head) to make 3 dots using white color to make the petals
4. Use the same doting tool (bigger head) to make one dot in the middle of the petals using Burnt Umber
5. Use the fine head of the doting tool to pick up some yellow color and put small dots on the white petals
6. Wait for the color to dry and apply Top Coat

Note: 
a) Clean the doting tool with water each time you change color
b) if the Acrylic paint is too thick, mix a tiny drop of water and stir properly

Hope you like this simple nail art design that does not require any drawing skill.
