Spring Flower Mani

I wanted to share an older manicure I did about a month ago. Please forgive the poor photography – I’m still improving! 

 

I was inspired by the beautiful flowers that Paulina’s Passions is famous for. She did a gorgeous mani called her Nautical Rose Mani, where she had horizontal navy blue and white stripes and pink roses as accents. I had to try it!

The CLAW! (Does anyone else think about Toy Story whenever they do the claw pose? I know I do 🙂 )

I decided to do vertical stripes instead because my nails were a bit shorter and I didn’t want them to look wide and stubby. I think the vertical stripes elongate them a bit.

Here’s how I did it:

  • Base color of L’Oreal Jet Set to Paris, a much older polish of mine that is a really pretty darker blue creme
  • Stripes with Zoya Purity
  • Then I blobbed on slightly irregular dots of Essie Boom Boom Room (the light Barbie pink)
  • Then I used a small striper to draw little swirly lines of a darker pink, L’Oreal Check Me Out (a more fuschia pink)
  • Then I drew on small leaves with a small dotting tool using Revlon Posh (a crayola true green)

I really loved this manicure! Wish my pics were better, but hey I’m working on that! What do you think of my first attempt at roses over stripes?
