Tropical Spring Flowers

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Julep is hosting a nail art contest showcasing their favorite Spring inspired manicures on their social media sites. I was asked to participate and it sounded like a fun idea. So, here is my Spring themed nail art for this challenge. I hope everyone likes it!

Tropical Spring Flowers Nail Art

Started with China Glaze Re-fresh Mint on all the nails except for the ring. With OPI Pink Friday and Julep Hayden, I applied them using a fan brush. I used Julep Sasha for the ring nail and created flowers using that color on the rest of the nails with a dotting tool. I used Julep Courteney to dot the center of each flower. The glitter I used is Gloss n' Sparkle Sour Candy on the ring accent nail. Finished with a coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat.

I was in the mood to create some flowers and what better time to wear them than in Spring. What do you think of my Spring inspired nail art?

    1. Thanks Abby! Pink Friday is a pretty pink but I'm sure there's other possible dupes out there too.

  15. How pretty! And the background is so soft and subtle that it adds a little something extra without competing with the flowers <3
