A slightly fiddly design but really pretty when it's finished!
Start with a rich purple and paint your nails in the normal way. Don't forget to use a base coat to protect your natural nail.
I've used S&C's Deep Purple.
Once this has dried use a lighter purple to create tear drop shape. I used a dotting tool to create the shape by hand but if you are unsteady try using the plastic drying technique I've shown in a previous blog.
Once this has dried use your dotting tool to line the tear drop in small white dots. I also added some blue flowers to the design to fill in the gaps around the tear drop.
I then added three green dots into the middle of the tear drops and a dark blue dot to the middle of the flowers. After that I added light green, smaller dots on top of the big green dots for some depth.
And there you have it... A purple paisley design.
