Hello Summer

I've been busy lately and I've deemed my recent nails as not worthy to publish online. Last night, however, I finally painted a satisfactory manicure. This is very similar to a previous design I did but with a different colour scheme. I'm super excited for summer vacation and the weather has been great lately so I painted my nails to match. I didn't realize that these colours would be so difficult to photograph! As a side note, I highly recommend this design to anyone of any skill level. As long as you can use a dotting tool or even a tooth pick, these flowers are goof proof and always turn out pretty!

I used China Glaze Breakin' as a base with American Apparel Poppy on the free edge of the nail for a subtle gradient. I layered that with a coat and a half of China Glaze Cherry Pie. I used China Glaze Breakin', American Apparel Manila and a white striping polish for the flowers and dots.
