You won’t always need too many colors and several coats of nail lacquer to have pretty nails. The idea of “less is more” is often applicable to nail art as well. Just take this flower nail art design, for instance. It has a very Zen vibe and still manages to look stunning in its simplicity.
To get the same look, cut and file your nails to your desired length and shape, then apply a clear base coat on the cuticles. Using white, yellow and black nail lacquer, draw a simple flower design that covers the whole area of each nail.
