I love floral nail art, so I found it pretty difficult to narrow down what I wanted to do, but I finally ended up with this simple, pretty manicure that’s perfect for spring.
Inspired by this tutorial by Mr. Candiipants, I started with a base of OPI My Vampire is Buff, which seems to have forgiven me my formula problems with the application of a bunch of thinner and some time. I drew petals in China Glaze Peachy Keen and Zoya Arizona, with leaves in SquareHue Flower Power and Revlon Rainforest. The flower centers are in SquareHue Groovy Love (the purple) and Julep Janel, which I got in a mystery box. I’m wearing Janel on my toes right now and it’s super pretty, even though the pink is too intense for my fingers to look good. I keep looking down and going “raspberry toes!”, which makes my dog try and lick them.
The original by Mr. Candiipants, with its larger, overlapping flowers, is much cuter. I didn’t realize until posting that I used almost the exact same colors as the tutorial; I wasn’t watching it when I polished my nails. But this was super easy to do and can be done in nearly every color combination, so I’ll be revisiting this pattern, I’m sure.
THE RED WEDDING.

I’m so in awe of the great Miss Ladyfinger (http://www.missladyfinger.com/) and her amazing ability to translate fashion into nail art. Someday I’ll be able to do that, I hope!
Wow, I love them!
Thanks so much!
