Bending bobby pin

1. Prep

Remove any old polish, file your nails into your desired shape, and apply a clear base coat.

This will create a smooth surface and help protect your natural nails.

2. Bend and dip

Take a bobby pin and gently bend it in the middle to create a slight curve. This will be the tool you use to create the flower petals.

Dip the curved end of the bobby pin into your chosen nail polish color. Make sure the tip is evenly coated with polish.

3. Create your flowers

Place the bobby pin onto your nail, lightly pressing the polish-coated tip onto the nail's surface to create the first petal.

Repeat this step to create more petals around the center, rotating the bobby pin slightly with each petal. 

Creating flowers

Use a different color for the center to create some variety.
