Floral Nail Art All Around!

Hey girlie girls. So every Monday for just over 2 months, my long-time friend Melissa has come over and we do our nails (read, I do her nails). Today I had the bright idea to do nail art on us. I'll show you what I did to her nails later. First, I'll show you my nails. I'm sure you've seen this a million times: pink roses on a pastel green and white striped background. I know it's been done to death but I really wanted to do it and here is what I did:

I think it came out great. I used Essie Mint Candy Apple as a base and some other polishes I don't want to reach into my melmer to find again and some striper polish. I really like these, they are so cute! :D Also, I think I'm better at painting with my left hand than my right...but I'm right handed. Is that a fail or a win? Anyways...

Here's what I did for Mel's nails:

I was inspired by a design by Luvable Nails but I didn't do it exactly as it was on there. She used acrylics and I used polish, and her skill level is MUCH higher than mine. I still like how they turned out though. I didn't get to clean up her nails because she was rushing to leave (hence the smudge on her ring finger) but yeah. I think they're cute.

What do you think? Do you like it? Did I do a good job? Let me know! Thanks for reading! :D 


  1. OMG! I am loving both of these!! Can you come do my nails too????

  2. I love it! Makes me want SPRING TIME NOW!

  3. @ Ashesela: Thanks so much! :D

    @ Fingers: Thank you! And I wish I could! :D

    @ Peace, Love and Polish: Thanks! That's why I did the floral print, I want SPRING! :D

  4. I love the stripped vintage rose look. I just did a similar design a while back.
