May favorites

Here are my favorite manis from May. I don’t think I can spot a theme for this month but I guess that’s not a bad thing!

Which one do you like the most?

Cherry blossoms

I love this time of year so much, especially when the cherry blossoms start to bloom. So I just had to make some nails to match the season! ūüĆł

The base is It’s a boy! from this year’s soft shades collection. I used¬†How great is your Dane? for the branches, Mod about you and Shorts story to paint the flowers and You are so outta lime! for the leaves.

Of course I had to get a picture with my nails and a cherry blossom tree!

Summertime mani

Today I’m gonna show you a¬†manicure that I’ve thought about making for a while now and finally had time to do! I think it turned out really great, very summer-y and pretty! The inspiration behind this mani is a Kokeshi doll that I got from Skincity¬†in a recent order.

For this mani I used Alpine snow, Love.Angel.Music.Baby and Down to the core-al, all from OPI. The Zebra pattern is made with stencils from Snail vinyls.

Then I added a flower using Hibiscus flower¬†stencils, aslo from Snail vinyls, and Down to the core-al. The leaves are hand painted¬†with I’m sooo swamped! and You are so outta lime!

Here is a comparison picture before and after I added the flower. I love how the look completely changes when adding the flower!
