Hello loves, I hope you’re having a beautiful start to your Thursday!
Today’s look is giving me early blog vibes, & most specifically this early design featured in the younger days of this blog. I love a good floral, & to be honest I haven’t really been inspired to paint floral on my nails in a while. I think June was the last time I posted any kind of floral, & even that was a simple daisy design. So to say I was long overdue would be an understatement.
So obviously I decided lets do a throwback inspired design, grabbed some pink & red polishes, & I ended up with this pretty look! The throwback vibes are strong, & I’m okay with that. I feel like old school nail art designs are making a comeback — heck one of the indie brands even released a whole collection of crackle nail polish — so I thought I would join in on the fun.
The polishes I used for this manicure are:
- Base Coat: Essie Hard To Resist Glow & Shine
- Top Coat: Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat
- L’Oreal Vintage Vinyl
- Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Ski Bunny
- L’Oreal Feeling Kilty
- Sally Hansen InstaDri Racing Rose
- Sally Hansen InstaDri Cinnasnap
- Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Montley Hue
- China Glaze Shore Enuff
- Essence Cosmetics Green is the new Grunge
- Starrily Vantablack
- Dotting tool (I always use mine from NailStuff.ca — Dotting Tool Trio)
- NailStuff.ca Mermaid Tail Nail Brush Trio (11mm Liner Brush)
Ooooh it’s so pretty! I mean, being a self confessed perfectionist I can definitely see some flaws, but I’m not going to concentrate on those, & instead focus on the good things… like floral being on my nails again after far too long. It just feels good, especially during these frigid days we’ve been having. I’m not a fan of Winter once Christmas is over, so I don’t really enjoy January at all.
A girl can only drink so many extra hot coffees in a day.
So I would expect to see a few more florals popping up on my nails over the next few weeks, especially as we start inching closer to Valentine’s Day.
