Let's start this tropical flower nail design, even though summer is coming to an end.
Hibiscus flower on the thumb nail
As always start of with a thin layer of base coat to protect your nails.
Once your base coat has dried, polish all of your nails except your ring finger nail with a light blue polish, then polish your ring finger nail with a glittery pink polish.
Then once your base colors have dried we will start our tropical flower design. On the thumb and middle finger nail we will make a big flower, then on the index and pink we will just make half of the flower, along with some palm leafs on all of the nails.
* For this design I used acrylic paint, I did not have all the colors so I just mixed a few colors to make my own. For the light pink I took mainly white paint and added a little bit of red, then for the slightly darker pink, I just added a little more red. For the green, I used the green I already had and then made a light green by adding some yellow. *
First we will stat off with the big hibiscus, that we be on the thumb and middle finger nail.We will first make the outline of each petal, starting near the cuticle make two petal shapes, then make the two petals on the sides, and then one more in the middle at the top of the flower. Then fill that in with your light pink paint. You may need to go over this a few times to be opaque.
As we let that dry on to the next flowers, the half hibiscus on the the index and pinky finger nails. For this flower we will make it near the cuticles on opposite sides. Once again make a petal shape in the middle near the cuticle and then one on each side of that petal, their should only be three petals. Then fill that in as well with the light pink paint.
Now that your petals are dried we will add the darker pink to the center. On each petal just make a few line going from the center and going half way down the petal.
Once that has dried we will make the steam or the yellow part that is in the center of a hibiscus. With yellow paint make a curved line from the center of each flower going in different directions, with three small dots at the end. You may also have to go over this a few times to be opaque enough.

Now on to the palm leaves, on each nail I put one to two leaves going in all different directions and on different places on the nails. For the palm leaves with a dark green paint, make a long thin line that is straight or a little bit curved, then make a lot of small little lines for the leaves going down that long line, making sure to have a little bit of space in between each small line. In between the small dark green leaves, with your light green paint make some more lines to add some detail/ color different in the palm leaf.

Once you have your hibiscus tropical flower nail design the way you like and you have let it dry, apply a top coat to seal in your design and to help it last.
Hibiscus Flower Nail Design, on my right hand
As per usual, I sometime will do the same design on my right hand that is a little bit more simple (or not.) For the design on my right hand, for the most part I kept it the same, with the large flower on my thumb and then on the index and middle finger nail, I just made the half flower, and on the pinky nail I just made a palm leaf.
