Hello Lovelies! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend & is all ready for the week ahead. This week, I’ve decided for a fun mani theme: all floral! It’s no secret how much I love floral nail art, so I thought I would share a few of the floral designs I’ve been doing lately. Honestly, if it wouldn’t bore everyone else I’m pretty sure I could wear flowers on my nails non-stop. They’re just so perfect any time of the year.
Today’s design is actually inspired by my day planner! As soon as I bought it, I knew that I was going to need to do nail art inspired by it. The combination of colours was just screaming to be painted on my nails!
The polishes I used for this manicure were:
- Base Coat: Quo by ORLY Breathable Kiss Me, I’m Kind
- Top Coat: Seche Vive
- OPI Race Red
- Essie Play Date
- China Glaze Sun Upon my Skin
- Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Mellow Yellow
- China Glaze Plur-ple
- Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Pretty Piggy
- Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Lacey Lilac
- Sally Hansen I ♥ Nail Art pen in Green
- Essie Off Tropic
- Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Black Heart
- Small Detail Brush (Bundle Monster)
- Dotting Tools (Bundle Monster)
At first I wasn’t sure if this colour combination was going to work for me, but once I had it on it looked so perfect. Obviously my flowers aren’t as abstract as my planner, but I feel like they match close enough for me to be happy. The colour combination also reminds me of a Hawaiian shirt, so I feel like this manicure would be perfect for a beach luau! Or, in my case, hanging out on the couch pinteresting Summer fashion looks because that’s about as close as I’m getting to the beach right now. Seriously, what I wouldn’t give to wear a summer dress & flats–I’m so over boots & jeans, so so so over them. & it snowed yesterday, so now Spring feels even farther away.
Floral always takes so many polishes to do, but honestly the end result is always worth it. I don’t think I’ve ever painted floral on my nails & regretted it. There are so many ways to do them, it just never gets old. & look how well this design twins with the day planner that inspired it! Like I said, mine isn’t as abstract as my planner but the colours are spot on so I’m very happy with how they turned out!
