For today's theme, we have grass and flowers. One of the first things that comes to mind when I think of spring is the lush green grass and blossoming buds after winter. Granted, it's usually pretty green all year here in Florida, but we still get seasonal changes!
I also was excited to jump right into pastel season. I love pastel colors and spring shades, so I chose a light purple for the background. I suppose the purple and green are a bit bright and not really pastel, but the colors look "springy" to me!
I started by painting my nails with two coats of Revlon Enchanting. I then took a light green striping polish and free handed random blades of grass and flower stalks. I dotted the flower petals with a medium dotting tool and Ulta Snow White, and added little yellow centers with Julep Blake.
Since I chose a medium dotting tool, I couldn't fit too many flowers on each nail without overcrowding it. So I just put three on each one. I think they look alright though, and I really love the color combination! I also don't usually wear purple, but I'm really loving this shade.
I'm really happy with these nails and I think they're a great way to begin spring! I love the delicate little daisies and can't wait to see a bunch of real flowers spring up everywhere outside.
As always, you're welcome to join in on the challenge! Feel free to share your nails with me on my Facebook wall.
There are lots of great bloggers participating in this challenge too!
