Thanks everyone you make a gal feel real good. They are all freehand, the first one all I did was paint a thick diagonal line in black then framed it with the thin gold lines. I then painted the leaves, then the flowers and then put in some flower buds, tiny strokes, and dots here and there. When I painting the flowers I double loaded my brush to give the petals and the buds more detail. The brushes I used where a filbert, small round and a liner brush. I found that I would get lines that were too thick so I cut my liner brush till I had about 5 or 6 hairs left in it and now it works just great to get the really small details.

Must say you're very very talented - don't think I could do those designs in a million years :( Out of curiosity how long does it take you to do a full set like that - without the amount of detail in some of those designs I'd expect it to take longer than the enhancements themselves ;)

For the detailed one at the top of the page it takes approximately 3 to 4 minutes per nail. I do them in steps, so by the time I am finished the first step on the last nail (if doing a full set of art) the first one is dry and I can start the next color right away. My times do vary on some of the art because I find the more I do a certain design the faster I get at it. That design is fairly new so it might not take as long as I stated after I am able to do it more of it.

Thank you so much. The first one is one of my favorites as well. I am wanting to do more, but right now I only have single tips to do my art on and I am wanting to get some of the nail tip design wheels. I think that way they will be easier for my clients to view, and easier for me to handle.

Debbie,
If you can do a simple 5 petal flower, all you need to do to add a bit more detail to it is to double load your brush. Dip one side of the brush into one color and the other side in another, for example white and a pale blue. I use a filbert brush for this and I use the side of the brush to paint the petals. If you want a white flower with blue accents place the white edge of the brush to the nail first or vice versa. You can also do the same for the leaves using a dark and a lighter green. Then add veins to the leaves for detail. I usually use a silver or gold for the center of the flower to give it a bit of sparkle.
Hope this helps and good luck and have fun :flower:

Thanks Trina, I don`t do nearly enough practising with nail art because I`m not a confident artist. Maybe you should all do step by steps of all your great work all you artists out there, that way we could all have a go
