Greetings, Procrastinails readers! My name is Emily and Nail Envy is my little corner of the blogosphere. I’m guest posting today for Katherine, and thought I’d share with you all a pretty, spring-themed mani. Since this is my first guest post ever, I decided I did not want to skimp on the bling! 😉
I love bright, cheery pastels for spring, so I chose Essie – Fashion Playground for the base polish. I decided to go with daisies, the quintessential spring flower. Even though I needed a bright white polish to paint the daisies, I wanted the accent nails to be a soft white, so I used Essie – Allure for the accent.
Fashion Playground went on my index, middle and pinky fingers, then 3 coats of Allure on my thumb and ring finger. I topped my thumb and ring finger with China Glaze – Make a Spectacle, then went on to paint the daisies.
Using a small rounded nail art brush, I painted the daisy petals with Salon Perfect – Sugar Cube. Sugar Cube is fairly opaque in one coat, so this is a good white polish to use. I used a very thin nail art brush to add a stroke to the petals with Zoya – Dove. Adding the stroke in grey was a little tricky, but I like the definition it adds to the simple flower.
I topped all of my nails in Seche Vite, then added large rhinestones for the daisy centers. That’s it! Now I’m all blinged for spring!
From Katherine: These are so perfect for spring, aren’t the flowers lovely? And I adore any look that makes use of CG Make a Spectacle!
