Winter is hardly half way through, but with the appearance of beautiful spring clothing in stores and on the LuLu*s site, we’re ready for warmer seasons to come. The pretty mints and floral prints had us excited so we decided to do a floral manicure this week. A reader of ours taught us the simple steps to making easy rose-like flowers, so follow along below!
Here’s the look we’re going for:
What you’ll need:
- mint nail polish
- hot pink nail polish
- white nail polish
- green nail polish
- fast dry top coat
- a toothpick
Start with a few coats of your base color. Allow the coats to dry completely before continuing.
Now take your pink nail polish and dab a small dot on your nail. Then grab the white polish and dab a small dot directly next to the pink one.
Then take your toothpick (quickly before the polishes dry) and “stir” the dots together to make a swirled together spot of polish.
The take the other end of your toothpick and pick up some green polish. Dab the toothpick sideways to create a small leaf shape on the sides of your flower. Repeat the above steps multiple times on each nail to make a repeated flower pattern.
and then top coat and you’re done– your nails will be ready or the spring in no time!
