Flowers! Flowers everywhere! That’s how it looks outside AND inside right now and I’m lovin’ it. So why not get inspiration for your next manicure from the lovely blooming surroundings? And that’s exactly what I’m going to do today. For the second instalment of my easy nail art for spring series, I’m going to share with you these colourful flowery nails which are easier to do than they look like, I swear!
I couldn’t choose between these two beautiful colour schemes so I decided to do them both, one on each hand. But you do you and if this is too much (either colours or work), pick only one. This is the list of the products I used: base coat (OPI Nail Envy), top coat (Essie Good To Go), light blue (Bourjois So Laque in ‘Adore Bleu’) + off-white blue (Essie ‘Find Me An Oasis’ + bright yellow (China Glaze ‘Happy Go Lucky), pastel coral (Barry M Gelly ‘Papaya) + raspberry red (Essie ‘Watermelon’) + the same yellow. As for the tools, only two thing are needed: a piece of water resistant material (tin foil in my case) and a dotting tool. You can use either a bought one (from a drugstore or ebay) or if you don’t have one, you can easily diy it.
The application itself is really easy. After I painted my nails with base coat and my main-coloured nail polishes, I poured a few drops of the colour I wanted to use for petals on a tin foil. Then I grabbed my dotting tool, dipped it in and dotted 4-5 times in a circle where I wanted my flowers to be. It doesn’t have to be perfect, in fact I like it better when they are not the same and I also did some partial prints on the edges of my nails. After that I dipped the tool in a yellow polish and dotted one dot in the center of my flowers. Then I’ve waited for about 10 minutes for the dots to dry properly and painted my nails with a generous amount of top coat. And that’s it! Impressive but easy manicure done.
What do you think? Do you like the idea of this blooming manicure? Let me know if you’re going to try it yourself.
Omygosh! This nail art is so sweet. I love the colour combos you’ve used to! It does seem quite easy so I’ll definitely have to give it a go sometime!

This is so pretty! Dotting tools or the end of a bobby pin work. The dotted tutorials are easy even for a nail art newbie like me
