How To Paint Light Green Nails With Flower Design: Main Nails
For this nail design, I chose a squoval nail shape to balance the soft hues and feminine flowers. To file a square nail shape, file the nail tip at a straight line parallel with your nail bed base. Make sure you aren’t filing at an angle or letting the file touch your skin under the nail. For a squoval shape, slightly round out the corners.
On the main nails (pointer finger, pinkie, and thumbs) paint two thin coats of a minty light green polish. If your polish is sheerer, you can paint a third coat. Always allow your polish to fulaly dry before moving to the next step.

On the index and ring fingernails, paint two thin coats of a neutral or cool-toned nude polish. Allow the polish to dry one hundred percent before applying the decals to prevent smudging.
Nail decal stickers are trending right now. They are available at most beauty stores and online. Etsy even has custom options. Most come with multiple styles and sizes on one sheet.
For this design, choose flower stickers that fit on your nail bed. Some nail designs look great with cut and partial decals, but for this design, solid flower decals look best.
Remove the chosen decal from the sheet using flat-tipped tweezers. Carefully place the decal on your nail. Decal stickers are usually permanent and may pull up even dry polish, so be specific when placing them. With a clean finger, oh-so-gently smooth the sticker down, adhering it to your nail.
Once all the flower decals are placed and smoothed down, complete the nail design with a clear topcoat. Topcoat protects your polish from chipping and will secure the decals to your nails and prevent peeling edges.
If you’d like, paint an additional top coat to smooth over and dampness if the flower decals are a bit thicker or if you simply prefer a smooth topcoat.
