Now that spring is upon us, I cannot help but notice all the flowers beginning to blossom. This gave me inspiration to create spring inspired nails. Spring is such a joyous time as it welcomes vibrant colors that excite our clothing apparel and yield new fashion designs. Nothing can be more exciting than accessorizing your new spring wardrobe during this time! Why not use a creative, yet affordable, way to compliment your exotic spring style. What am I talking about?! Your nails! Adding nail art or even just painting your nails is a perfect way to add that extra zing to your outfit.
Since spring is known for its blossoming flowers, I decided to create floral nail art on my nails. I will show you step-by-step how I created this look below. Oh, and did I mention that I am a beginner with nail art (maybe done it three or so times in the past years) so anyone can re-create this look!
To re-create this look you will need 5 different polishes, a dotting tool or bobby pin and a tooth pick. All of the polishes I used in this tutorial can be found at your local Target or Target.com.
Let’s Get Started!
Step 1: Apply your base coat. Once dry, paint your nails any color you choose. I chose Revlon’s Colorstay polish in Coastal Surf. I absolutely love how vibrant this blue is!
Step 2: Grab a second color of choice to use for the flower petals. I chose to use Revlon’s Colorstay polish in Passionate Pink. Place a dime size amount of the polish onto a piece of paper. Using a dotting tool, or the tip of a bobby pin, dot four to five circles to create the flower petals. I made two or three flowers on just three of my nails. When the petals are half way dry, take a tooth pick and drag the petal inward to create more of a flower effect.
Step 3: Grab a third color for the center of the flower. I chose to use Revlon’s Colorstay polish in Sorbet. Add another dime size of polish to your paper. Using your dotting tool, or bobby pin, place a dot in the center of each flower.

Step 4: Using the same two polishes you used for the petals and center, create polkadots on your remaining two fingernails.

Step 5: Take a white polish, I chose Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri in Whirlwind White, and add another dime size to your paper. Place dots on top of the petals (leaving part of the petals color visible) on just one of the flowers on each nail. Once the dots are half way dry, take your toothpick and pull the white inward. Using the toothpick, draw a line for the flowers stem. Lastly, place a white dot over each large polkadot (leaving some of the color still visible).
Step6: Using a green polish, I chose to use Essie’s Turquoise & Caicos, dot on leafs for each flower with a stem.
Step 7: Apply a top coat and show off your newly designed spring nails!

I am really pleased with how well it turned out. I love the vibrant colors and cant stop starring at my nails! If you re-create this look or any spring nail art, upload a picture in the comment section below! I would love to see your work
