In nail art we can use only three layers — main color, light and shade.
- First layer should make a properly shape of a flower — don't mess with it. Draw at least five petals. Add second flower in smaller size if needed.
- Contour petals with lighter color. When petal fold back light is concentrate on the bend.
- Contour some petals inside.
- Add shades with darkest nail polish in the center and right where inner petals starts. Rose is round, petal has bend — that's why shades has triangle shape.
