Floral Manicure

I guess I have a bit of a floral theme going on this week! Floral pants and now a floral manicure! This mani was just a late-night experiment, but I was quite taken with the results and knew I just had to share! Want the look for yourself? Keep reading to see how I did it!

To achieve this look, swipe two coats of Essie's Glamour Purse on each nail and allow them to fully dry.

Put a drop of each pink, red, and/or coral polish (I used California Coral,Super Bossa Nova, Size Matters, In Stitches, and Peach Daiquiri, all Essie) out on a scrap of paper or plastic. For each rose, take a tooth pick or dotting tool or swirl together two or three colors in a small circular shape. Play with placement and size on each nail.

Next, dip a small nail art brush into Essie's Pretty Edgy and paint one or two leaves on almost every flower.

To smooth out and protect your design, finish up with one coat of Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat! And you’re done!

So cute. I love the way the different colored flowers add such depth to the mani.
