Spring Nails - Colorful Flower Nails

Spring is finally here. This morning my thick winter jacket went into the closet, the sun is shining and the birds are singing their songs. This I'm celebrating with some new nails. I'm gonna apologize for my lack of inspiration lately. Hoping I full of inspiration now when the gray winter days are over.

When I did these nails I wanted color, fun colors, springy colors. I couldn't chose just a few ones, I wanted as many as possible. These nails even gave me a little vintage feeling over these, but maybe that's only me? But I'm satisfied with these and think they are pretty .... springy?

Also apologizing for my cuticles. Can't find my cuticle cream, I'm almost panicking. Then the flash makes it even worse. You have to look at my nails extra much, and I will try finding a new cuticle cream!

For this I started with base coat. Then I painted all nails with two layers of white. Then two shades of the color you want from the flowers and the green for the leaf. One light and one darker. You can do all the flowers in on color if you don't want to. I just wanted to be really colorful. The flowers are done with a a kinda big dotting tool first with the darker color. Then with a smaller dotting tool I made some pattern with the lighter color.

With a small brush I painted the leaf with the dark green. Then I made some thinner line with the lighter green over that. It doesn't really show in the picture put it looks good in real life.
