It's no secret that Taylor Swift's newest album, RED, has become one of my most-listened-to CDs. I especially admire 'Begin Again', a song about newfound love, and the music video that goes with it. Out of that admiration, I found it more than appropriate to dedicate a nail design to both this song, and Taylor Swift, herself. Read on for a tutorial on how to create the Begin Again nails.

TOOLS: a pencil, cotton swab with all the fuzz removed, piece of scrap paper, thin paint brush (optional), and the following nail polish colors-- red, white, light blue, dark blue, green, and gold (optional). See below for color specifics.

STEPS:
1. Paint your pointer finger nails red, and the rest white.
2. Put down a drop of the following colors on your scrap paper: light blue, dark blue, and green.
3. Using the cotton swab, create several 3-dot clusters on each white nail. These will be the "petals" to each flower.
4. Using the pencil, create 3 dark blue dots in the middle of each cluster from step 3.
5. Using your paint brush, or the brush that comes with the nail polish, paint one small stroke on each side of your flowers. These will be the leaves.
6. Optional: Dab a small amount of gold nail polish in the middle of each flower for a little bit of bling.

In the order mentioned in the 'tools' section, here are the nail polish colors I used: 'Rekha' Zoya, 'Ooh La La White' China Glaze, 'Dreamer' Revlon, 'Navy' F21, 'Pistachio' Nordstrom B.P., and 'Key to My Art' Finger Paints'.
