Romantic flowers and negative space| valentines day nails

Hi lovelies, welcome back to my blog. I really hope you are all doing fabulous. Today I have a valentines day design to share with you. I recently did this for the #glamnailschallengefeb on instagram. I really liked it because it is a bit different than what I've done before. Let's get into it.

So I started by applying a cream base to the middle, ring fingers and thumb. Then using various reds I drew some roses using the darkest red as the base then shading and highlighting with the other red and the cream. To add a little extra to the design i filled it in with green leaves and smaller flowers.

For the pointer and pinky I used oval vinyls from what's up nails to section off the bottom of the nail and filled it in with the darkest red. I then used the lightest red to outline the top of the nail for a negative space look. I added a glossy topcoat to all nails to seal in the design. 

Then to finish off I added a layer of matte topcoat to all nails. I really liked the matte version better. Something about dark matte red is perfect for valentines day. What do you think? I really hope you enjoyed today's post. Thanks for stopping by. See you next time. 

Love khylie xx
