NAIL ART: Purple Floral French Mother's Day Mani

by - May 07, 2021

Because of our COVID-19 situation, we're back in lockdown here in Manitoba and I don't know if I'm going to be able to see my mom at all for Mother's Day this year, which is bumming me out pretty hard. I guess that kind of make it extra important to do some Mother's Day nails this year and I went with purple, my own mom's favorite colour, a little bit so that I could send her a picture of them. I love my mom, she's the best, and I know that I'm really, really lucky in that regard so I do definitely like to celebrate this particular day.

Anyway, keep reading for a closer look!

Like I said, I knew that I was going to do purple nails because purple is mom's favorite colour, and I also knew that I really wanted to pair a softer lavender shade with a richer more royal purple to keep it monochromatic but still have some depth and punch. I went with Different Dimension's Sky Full Of Stars, which is just a gorgeous base for nail art and has a lot of texture and interest and depth while still being really soft. 

The image that I decided to use for my stamping is from the Whats Up Nails B045 Sprung On Spring Stamping Plate and it's actually a really cool, versatily image. It has I  Mom in the center and then the top and bottom of the image are these little daisies that I knew would be absolutely perfect for creating this sort of stamped French mani type of look on the nail. I first went in and just applied the daisy design (the half that looks more like a line drawing than a solid flower) to all of my nails. Next, I decided to add the I  Mom to my accent nail for a little extra Mother's Day goodness.

Once I was happy with my stamping, I went in with a water based top coat to seal in my design and then followed with a generous layer of quick dry glossy top coat for shine and volume. And voila!
