Can you never have too many floral manicures in your life? Personally, I don’t think so. We all know how much I adore flowers–from clothes, to shoes, to cellphone cases to my nails, I can never have enough! Recently I found a Rifle Paper Co. phone case at Winners on payday, so I decided to attempt to recreate said pattern on my nails.
My attempt definitely turned out a little more rustic than its inspiration, but I think that is why I love the end result so much!
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
- Base Coat: OPI Nail Envy
- Top Coat: Essie Gel Setter
- Boho Green Make Up Moonlight
- Quo by ORLY Breathable Pep in my Step
- Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Pretty Piggy
- Sally Hansen MG Pretty Peony
- Sally Hansen MG Off the Shoulder
- Essie A-List
- China Glaze Sun Upon My Skin
- China Glaze Metro Pollen-tin
- YSL Vert D’Orient
- Sally Hansen Insta-dri Thyme is Money
- Essie First Timer
- Sally Hansen I ♥️ Nail Art pen in Black
- Bundle Monster detail brush
I’m kind of excited for Summer because it means I can change up my backgrounds & use outside. How lush does this design look with green grass in the background? Definitely throwing my pictures back to my pre-light-box days with these photos & I’m loving it! Seriously, staged photos are awesome but something about natural light makes your manicures look that much better.
If that doesn’t say Summer, I don’t know what else does! Also I’m never, ever going to get sick of doing floral. Never. How could you ever get sick of something so pretty! Hence why I keep filling my closet with more & more floral clothing pieces. The obsession continues! 🌿🌼🌱

Good morning & Happy Sunday loves! After a chaotic week I’m finally feeling a little refreshed & excited to start off a brand new week! & what is more excited to start off the week, than with Swatch Sunday & a pretty purple from the depths of my stash.
Today’s polish is one that I found on clearance at my favourite local Health Food Store for only $4! This beautiful crelly purple is called Moonlight & is from the brand Boho Green Make Up, which is based out of France. This brand is organic, natural & vegan–so it’s nail polish that you can feel awesome about wearing. You definitely get that feeling from the look of the bottle: it’s simple & uncomplicated with a wooden cap.
For my swatches, I used base coat (as I was going to be wearing the polish as the base next manicure) then two coats of colour & finished it off with top coat. Because of the crelly formula, you definitely need two thicker coats or three thinner coats for full opacity.
The smell while applying this polish was interesting — I suppose it is part of it being a “natural” brand, but it almost had a grape-like smell to it. I don’t know if that was psychosomatic from seeing the purple colour or actual but it definitely was more pleasant than your typical nail polish (not that I make a habit of going around sniffing every bottle of nail polish I put on my nails.)
Overall, I was quite impressed my experiences with this polish & brand. I own two shades–this one (Moonlight) & a Blue (Pacific Ocean) & both are really lovely polishes with fairly decent lasting power. I love the fact that they’re all natural & organic because it makes you feel good about wearing it on your nails.
