This stamping nail art design is enhanced with a couple of dots and rhinestones. I think it looks great when stamped over a gradient base color, but you could go with a one color base if you like.
You'll need a few tools for this tutorial - a stamp, scraper and image plate with a flower design on it. And a dotting tool - something like a toothpick will do fine for this.
Once you have the base color completed and dried, it will take approximately 20 minutes to finish. (Providing the stamping gods are playing nicely with you today). If not - it may take you a little longer.

Step 1: Start with a clear base coat and then apply your main base color.
Then top this with three (3) coats of clear top coat.
(this is optional if you are really good at stamping - if not then this is your insurance should something go wrong when you stamp the image on your nail in the next step).
I've went with a gradient base color which will be my accent nail. If you are unsure of how to do a gradient - then the have a look at this page which includes steps for creating a gradient base.
This colors for this base were O.P.I. - Senorita Rose-Alita and Pink Friday.
Step 2: Wait until your nails are dry, then stamp the flower chain design.
If you are using a light main base color - then go for a darker color for the stamp.
Or if you have opted for a darker base color - use a light color for the stamp.
Step 3: Enhance the stamp with a couple of dots in the centre of the flowers. And then add a couple of Rhinestones.
Go for a darker dot if your base color is light, or a light dot if your the main color is dark.
Finish with your favorite top coat to protect your nail art and help to prevent it from chipping.
