Blue and Green Flowers

These “bottle-brush” flowers by Mr. Candiipants have become my default nail art for spring and summer.  They’re ridiculously easy (though it took me a bit of practice to get them right), and you don’t need any special tools.  Here, I combined them with my other favorite nail art element (also borrowed from Mr. Candiipants): a sheer nude base.


I believe the base is OPI Care to Danse? (it could also be OPI Don’t Burst My Bubble, I’m not entirely sure, sorry!).  And for the flowers, I used China Glaze Sunday Funday, China Glaze Electric Pineapple, and OPI Can’t Find My Czechbook, with OPI I Saw… You Saw… We Saw… Warsaw for the centers.  I love that the colors are bright and fun, but toned down a bit with the nearly naked base.


I really love bright greens and blues for spring this year.  I think they’re really fun, and there are plenty options from all of the new polish collections.  Essie’s In the Cab-ana and OPI’s Can’t Find My Czechbook are recent favorites of mine.  What’s your favorite spring polish this year?

  1. This is so pretty! I’ve seen this look a lot lately, but I’m still a little intimidated by it. I’d have to say, my favorite spring polish is either Orly Lollipop or Illamasqua Blow!

    • Thanks! You should give them a try (if you can do those penguins, you can definitely do these!). It took me a bit of practice, but once I got it down, these are super simple and easy 🙂 I think Mr. Candiipants has a tutorial on youtube, too, if you’re interested.

      I’m going to Sally’s tomorrow to look for Orly Lollipop, and I just googled Illamasqua Blow and it looks so pretty! Adding it to my wishlist 🙂 Thanks!
