2. Using a toothpick draw a semi thick line toward the top of nail with a darker color, like Essie's Recessionista.
3. Before the polish dries, 'pull' the polish downward in a curve, so you can see the lighter color through the darker.
4. Continue doing steps 2 & 3. Each 'petal' should be far enough inside the last so you can see the color variation.
5. Add a dot of the lighter color in the center, and add two little green leaves on the outside of your flower. Seal with a top coat. & Enjoy!
