I’m still embracing the month-long spring we’ve had so far (though in Toronto, it’s only felt like spring for the last week or so). People have started their spring gardening (not me….), putting out their spring flowers (I did treat myself to tulips last weekend), and spring cleaning their houses (I’m putting this off a little longer).

One of the NAIL linkup themes this month is: spring floral nails so I thought since I seem to be so lazy with getting all my spring household chores done, why not take part in this theme and polish my nails?

To create this looks I used five nail polishes:
essie cool cascade
essie fiji
OPI suzi shops & island hops
essie blanc
essie good as gold

For the floral design, I used acrylic paints.

I used striping tape over the white nail polish and sponged on the three pinks for an ombre look for my floral nails. Once dry, I painted roses (using acrylic paints) over top. Finally I sponged a little bit of gold polish on top.

I’m loving these spring floral nails. Maybe now I’m ready to do some chores (or maybe I’ll put it off for another week…)

Until next time,

nail that accent
