Tropical Floral Nails

Sorry for the long absence again, but I’ve been wrapped up in taking care of baby squirrels lately! Even though I’ve split the job with my fiancé, it’s exhausting being a squirrel mom, and it doesn’t leave much time for blogging or nail painting.

This design was a fairly quick one because I really wanted to do something floral in a fun color scheme that represented the heat wave that we had in August. I started by painting my nails with Aimeili’s 097 Candy Green Castle gel polish which is a bright neon green jelly. I applied 2 coats and cured each layer for a minute in a UV/LED lamp. You can probably get an even more vibrant look if you apply a 3rd layer of gel.

This color reminds me of Slimer from Ghostbusters.

The flowers were done using the BP-L047 plate from Born Pretty. I stamped the image from the middle of the top row with gold stamping polish from Ya Qin An and colored in the flowers with a red holographic polish from Superchic Lacquer called Cherub.

Inspired by nature: BP-L047.

The image was transferred directly to my nail, and the process was repeated for the rest of the manicure.

Because of the colors used here, I also got Christmas poinsettia vibes from this manicure. Guess it works for both the summer and winter months!

I’ve got some more catching up to do on tutorials, so stay tuned! Happy polishing!
