Start off with a base coat, I used Essie’s “Grow Stronger” base coat.

Apply a base color of your choice, I used Express’ “Naughty” from the “Naughty and Nice” duo.

With a white nail polish or acrylic paint, paint the shapes of the flowers, the will help the colors to look more vibrant and stand out more against the red background (or any background color). I painted a few rough circles for roses, three lines surround a dot and lines leading towards a center dot for daisies. I used Apple Barrel’s “White” acrylic paint and Winstonia’s “Fine Line” brush.

Then, paint the stems and leaves of the flowers. I did this kind of random, I usually gave the bigger flowers the stems and just added leaves around them. I used Folk Art’s “Navy Blue” acrylic paint and Winstonia’s “Short” striping brush.

Fill in the white flowers with some more colors of your choice. I used Delta Ceramcoat’s “Hydrangea Pink” acrylic paint (the light pink) and Craft Smart’s “Rosemarie” acrylic paint (darker, hot pink) mixed with the lighter pink and, Craft Smart’s “Red” acrylic paint mixed with the lighter pink.

Give the flowers some details by mixing colors. With the red mixed with light pink, I painted a dot in the center of the rose and curved lines surrounding it. With the hot pink, I added some smaller lines in the daisy petals and a blurb in the middle of the other daisy and then a dot of the original color inside of that. I did the same blurb and dot technique on the redish daisy using the lighter pink.

On the rose, repeat the step with the lighter and darker color to give it more detail.

Add some dots in the center of the daisies using the same color used for the stems. I did this using a small dotting tool.

Add some light pink dots in the empty spaces to fill up space. I placed some dots in trios and some alone.

Lastly, apply a top coat. I used Essie’s “Gel-Setter” top coat.
