I was wondering if anyone could help me understand how someone can make a flower art like this:

http://elainewatson.com/images/artgallery/pasadena/100_0550.jpg

It says it's made with acrylic but how can the flower be so flat?

I have seen many nail art like this also here in the gallery and they are awesome, I would also like to try it, but I cannot figure out how to make it so flat.
Thank you :hug:

in that picture the flowers have had a layer of clear placed over them to create what is called encased nailart.
you would do your colour then the flowers then a layer of clear over the whole nail. HTH

No, it is acrylic. I've seen it many times. If you google or try Youtube, you should be able to find tutorials for tihs.
Some geeks here can do it too, I believe.
I can't though (yet.... ugh)

They are very small beads that are flattened out, then as said, then clear L&P laid over top of them.

hth's
example:
YouTube - 3D acrylc nail art

(it's not encased, but it is flat)
