Hello! Today I’m bringing you a floral season crossover manicure that fits spring and summer months equally well. Let’s get started!
For my base color, I picked a light pink from Ulta’s Salon Formula collection called Encore Pink. Honestly, now that I’ve tried out this line, I wouldn’t use it again because it took 3-4 coats to get even coverage across my nails, and it took forever for it to dry properly! I do love the pink color though.
I wanted to use leaf and flower patterns for this design, so I sourced them from two different plates from Born Pretty Store.
I used Born Pretty Stamping Nail Polish in Green to transfer the images to my nails. For some reason, it was not as opaque with the floral image as it was with the leaf image. The plates looked to be engraved with the same depth, but perhaps this was not the case after all.
For the final touch, I used a small dotting tool to apply OPI’s He’s My Surfing Instructor over the small flowers in the design. The polish consists of different iridescent and light blue glitters suspended in a blue jelly base so the shape of the flowers still show through.
Altogether this manicure is perfect for either spring or summer!
Hope you’re staying cool and having a nice June! Happy polishing!
