Flip Flop February - Recreate Favorite Day

Well today is the last day of this Flip Flop February challenge. It's been really fun, but it's also been pretty exhausting posting everyday this month! I did a lot of fun nail art though, but it will also be nice to be able to get some swatching done after this.

I had a lot of nails that I really liked from this challenge, but I think the ones I did for day 20 are my favorite. I did cherry blossoms since the theme was flowers. But that challenge wasn't too long ago - only about a week! So I didn't want to recreate it exactly the same way.

So I switched up the colors. I guess it's more like a normal tree with green leaves now instead of flowery cherry blossoms, but oh well. It's the same design!

It's funny how different it can look just by changing the color from pink to green. I was also considering trying blue, but I thought green would be a nice transition into March since Saint Patrick's Day will be coming up (and another nail art challenge too!). 

I used the same method as last time for these nails. I started with a coat of Ulta Snow White, and then lightly painted on Zoya Opal for a sheer green tint in the corner of each nail. I free handed the black branches on with a nail art brush, and then dotted the leaves with Essie Mojito Madness. I topped it all with Seche Vite and that was it!

Wow, I can't believe the challenge is over already! February was a quick month for me. Now I look forward to Saint Patrick's nail art and Easter nail art for March!
