A few weeks ago, I picked up the new OPI sheer tints minis that have been floating around on nail art blogs. I was super excited when I found them, and so there was no question I needed them. The only thing I wasn’t sure was what I should use them for! After some serious consideration I realized they would be perfect for a water-color floral print for day 14 of the challenge.
For this manicure, the polishes that I used were:
- Revlon Nail Polish in Minted — the mint green polish on my thumb, pointed and middle finger.
- China Glaze’s White on White — white base color on my ring and pinky finger, and dots on my mint base color on other fingers.
- OPI Sheer Tints in Be Magentale With Me — pink-ish colored flowers.
- OPI Sheer Tints in I Can Teal you Like Me — blue-ish colored flowers.
- OPI Sheer Tints in Don’t Violet Me Down — Purple-ish colored flowers.
- Sally Hansen Diamond Flash Top Coat.
These turned out so perfect. The OPI sheer tints are a little weird to work with, because they dry quickly on the nail art brush. I also found myself having to grab more polish more often than when drawing with regular polish. However the outcome is gorgeous. I’m such a fan of floral print in general, and this manicure just screams spring to me. It makes me want to wear pretty floral dresses, and flats, and not have to worry about freezing to death. Hopefully the weather starts to agree soon. Summer is my favorite season, and I’ve been longing to break out my maxi dresses again. Every time I walk past my closet I see them hanging there… and I just want to wear them SO bad.
So what’s your favorite go-to nail art for Spring?
