Nail Diary #385

Often my manicures reflect the seasons or holidays.  This mani reflects April showers bringing May flowers.  And wow I can’t wait for the May flowers.  Bring on warm weather.

This is a 3:2 look.  The 3 nails are my April showers.  The showers are two colors sponged on the nail using SquareHue mint green Duval Street on the bottom part of the nail closest to the tip and sky blue St John on the cuticle side.  I was thinking rain and grass.  Then using Konad white and Bundle Monster plate BM-S229 I stamped on a stormy/windy cloud image.

The 2 nails are my flowers.  For this look I sponged on two pinks and a sherbet orange.  The pinks are SquareHue Eiger and Mallory Street and the orange is also SquareHue Temple Bar.  I was thinking this is a perfect combo to stamp flowers over.  Using the same Bundle Monster plate I stamped on a flower image using Konad black.  Then I added a Northern Lights holo top coat over the 2 flower nails.

This is cute… although it looked better in my mind.

Hope you get to enjoy some May flowers soon!!

Nail Diary #337

April 22, 2015

Hey fellow nail polish lovers.  I hope this week finds you all well.  I seriously can’t believe how quickly April is going by; it will be summertime before we know it.

The mani I have to share with you tonight is inspired by a ten year old ornamental plum tree in my backyard.  It actually is the first tree we planted in our yard way back when.  My favorite thing about this tree is the spring plum blossoms.  Although they only last a week or two at the most, while they are blooming they sure make me happy.  And when the blossoms fall it is like it snows flower petals <3.

On to the nails.  My base color is a Zoya satin called Ana, Ana is a simple light almond color.  This represents the petals without being a too in your face white or pink. Then using Zoya Anja a deep wine color polish I stamped on a blossom image from Pueen stamping plate 93.  Anja represents the center of the plum blossoms.  Tiny note: I decided to add a top coat to seal the stamping so you won’t see Ana as a satin in these pictures.

I really love how this spring manicure turned out.  I like the idea of having a flower or plant inspire my manicures for awhile;  I think my next inspiration will be my gorgeous lilac bushes.  Stayed turned to see how that translates on to my nails.

Happy polishing!

Thanks for stopping by!! ❤❤
