My Bright Easter Floral

Hey there! I'm sorry I haven't posted in a bit -- things have been totally crazy these past five or six days (in a good way though). I have some exciting things lined up for this week but I thought I'd begin by showing you guys the nails that I wore on Easter.

This design was created by the darling Mr. Candiipants. She has a YouTube tutorial for it that I'd recommend watching if you want to give it a try. It's super easy to do and all you need are the brushes that come with the polish!



I chose to use a different color scheme for my version than the one in her tutorial. I used five Zoya polishes in total: Jacqueline (bone white base), Audrina (pink), Malia (purple), Arizona (orange), and Robyn (blue). I used black for the dots in the center of my flowers to try to anchor the bright colors a bit.




My aunt Cris loved this design so much that she had me recreate it on her nails at Easter!


This floral technique is really so easy and quick that I imagine I will be doing it a lot going forward. So thank you to Candice for the fantastic design, and I will see you guys back here tomorrow with another post!

  16. Absolutely gorgeous. The colours and design go so well together.

    I was wondering I am having trouble finding a decent white polish for bases, do you have any recommendations. Does this Zoya one go on fairly smoothly?

    1. Well, Zoya Jacqueline is more of an off-white/cream color instead of a true white, and besides that it actually usually requires between 2-3 coats for opacity. I would recommend checking out Milani White On the Spot, Cult Nails Tempest, or OPI Alpine Snow (this one being the least opaque, but still useable).
