NAIL ART: Decorative Pastel Spring Flowers Nails

by - April 19, 2021

With our #CBBxManiMonday theme for April being Spring and the weather here in Winnipeg being distinctly... a blizzard that gave us our biggest snowfall of the year last week, there's a bit of a disconnect happening in my head. Luckily, I've got some beautiful spring polishes in my collection and visions of pretty pastel flowers dancing in my head, even if the weather refuses to cooperate.

I recently picked up the Different Dimension Out Of This World Trio because it just felt like the perfect trio for spring - and I was right! Rocket Man is described as a baby blue crelly with aurora shimmers, iridescent color shifting flakes, and holographic microflakes. For such a soft, almost delicate shade it has a lot of interest and dimension. I chose this shade for this design really specifically because of those other elements peeking through the blue base that just feels really cohesive with the pastel floral design. 

For this mani, I applied two coats of Rocket Man as my base. 

For the stamping, I really wanted to use this small floral design and place it in the corners of my nails. This is one of my favorite types of designs because it can feel simultaneously really delicate and soft but also a little bit artsy. To keep it super springy, I went with pastel neon shades for the flowers and then a really soft sagey green for the leaves and filled them in on my stamper with a nail art brush. To transfer the image, I first lightly applied a sticky base coat to the area that I wanted to place my image and then let it dry for about a minute before placing the design. 

Once I had transferred all of the images, I sealed in the designs with a layer of water based top coat and then finished with a generous layer of quick dry glossy top coat and voila!
