It’s been a long time since I shared a nail art tutorial, so I am thrilled to partner with Sally Hansen to bring you a fun dry brush flower nail art design. As usual, the nail art design is quick, easy, and can be done without any special nail tools…or talent, really, since I was able to pull it off. 😉
Dry Brush Flower Nail Art Tutorial
All the items I am using in the tutorial today I purchased at my local Rite Aid. If you don’t live near a Rite Aid…I feel very sad for you. I never had one growing up, and now that I live near one, I LOVE taking advantage of their amazing sales and deals.
The star products I want to feature are the Sally Hansen Complete Care 7-in-1 Nail Treatment and the Sally Hansen Vitamin E Nail & Cuticle Oil. If you want an affordable nail treatment….girl! This is the one you need to get! If you’ve been following me on Snapchat, you know my nails have been in BAD SHAPE lately, and are constantly peeling and breaking. Which makes the 7-in-1 Nail Care ideal because it helps to restore dry, brittle nails for visibly healthier looking and beautiful nails in 3 days — it’s true! After 3 days my nails feel stronger!
Okay, let’s get down to business! Picture above is everything you are going to need….plus acetone. I totally forgot to include acetone in the picture. (Totally sleep-deprived, mommy-brain moment right there…) The colors for the polishes can be whatever you want — just keep one of them nude, since you want a nude base to this mani.
STEP 1) After prepping your nails (forgot to show this, too, but I use acetone, file, and pushed back my cuticles with the orangewood sticks), use the Sally Hansen Complete Care 7-in-1 Nail Treatment as a base coat. Allow about 5 minutes to dry before continuing.
STEP 2) Apply two coats of a nude polish. Here I am using Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel polish in 110 Birthday Suit. Allow each layer to dry at least 5 minutes before continuing. Use the detailed brush dipped in acetone to clean up around the nail.
STEP 3) Now comes the “dry brush flower” part. All you’re going to do is take your pink polish (I am using Miracle Gel in the color 311 Freesia Your Mind) and swipe both sides of the brush a few times against the inside neck of the bottle. This will only leave a very small amount on the brush…hence, the dry brush! 😉
STEP 4) Now take that dry brush and, using either the thick or thin edge (depending on the size of your nail) swipe three or four times from an angle on one side of your nail to create the ‘petals’ of the flower.
STEP 5) Using the Miracle Gel polish in 769 Gigabryte, apply a little swipe to the corner, over the pink, to create the center of the flower. Easy-peasy!
STEP 6) I purchased one of my Sally Hansen Mircle Gel polish colors in the duo with the top coat, so use either that OR the Sally Hansen Complete Care 7-in-1 Nail Treatment to seal in your design. Yep, this nail treatment can be used as a base coat and a top coat!
STEP 7) Once nails are completely dry use Sally Hansen Vitamin E Nail & Cuticle Oil to keep the skin around your nails moisturized and your cuticles soft. You can use this product every night to keep your nails super-healthy and help stimulate new nail growth!
STEP 8) You are done! Take pictures and show off your new mani to your family and friends!
And just in case you thought it was weird I used the Complete Care 7-in-1 Nail Treatment as both a base and top coat…yes, it’s part of the 7 benefits that this product gives to your nails! The other aspects that this nail treatment gives is growth treatment, nail strengthener, ridge-filler, brightener, and ultra-moisturizing.
Okay, enough chatter! That’s all there is to this dry brush flower nail art design! I always love adding flowers to my manicures, and I loved the idea of dry brushing, that I wanted to combine the two for a super-easy design.
