Lime “Grown Up Floral” Nails

I’ve been coveting these nails by Mr. Candiipants for a while, and she finally did a tutorial, so I thought I’d give them a go.  And for some reason, I’ve been craving brights lately, and since Candice suggested using two similar colors for this design, I thought I’d use two of my new polishes.  And I think they turned out great!

The base is China Glaze Def Defying from the new Cirque de Soleil collection.  I painted the flowers using China Glaze Electric Pineapple and a medium length striping brush.  These two colors go so well together!  I also really love the contrast of the bright color and the subtle design.

I absolutely love this pattern, and might be doing it a lot in the near future… just a warning.  It’s also way easier than it looks, so if you like it, definitely give it a try!
