Winter Floral Manicure

Welcome to March! I needed a little pick me up after having such a horrible February, so I came up with this glittery floral manicure. Hope you enjoy it!

I started by painting my nails with 2 coats of 127 Rosa Multiflora from Aimeili. This gel polish has a ton of pink foil flake glitter suspended in a pink jelly base. It’s super shiny and dazzling and would fit in perfectly at a disco.

2 coats of 127 Rosa Multiflora from Aimeili were applied with each coat cured for 60 seconds in a 36W UV/LED lamp.

Dried Flower and Damask Print Nails

I’m bringing you some more flower nail art to brighten your day today!

Again, I’m featuring some dried flowers from Born Pretty Store. Stay tuned for a review on these flowers coming soon to the blog!

This time I used the little lavender blooms from the far left. Some prep work is needed before starting to paint.

I gently pulled the petals from the husks and trimmed down the brown parts with a small pair of scissors before setting the blooms aside. Be very careful that the area is not drafty because the petals can blow away very easily!

Dried flowers can be messy, so work over a piece of paper for easy clean up.

For the nails, I started by painted everything with a shimmery lavender polish called The Color to Watch from OPI.

This polish is a little sheer, so it takes 3 coats to get the look in the photo.

I wanted to add some stamping to my nails, so I picked some pretty prints from the L026 plate from Harunouta to do the job.

I chose to stamp with the 2 square designs in the top and middle rows, 2nd column from the right.

I alternated my chosen patterns on each nail, turning the stamper 45 degrees for a diagonal placement to change the look. That pretty lavender lacquer is Born Pretty Stamping Nail Polish #271.

A very subtle and classy damask print design will complement the flower petals that are added next.
