Polishers Inc. - Inspired By Nature // Floral Nail Art

Hi everyone! It's time for another Polishers Inc. nail art challenge! This month our theme is "Inspired By Nature" and as always, I start panicking and don't know what the heck to do haha!

When the theme was set, I knew that I wanted to do floral nail art, but the inspiration part, hmm... It was nowhere to be found! After a while it just hit me - I remembered I saw this beautiful white flower in the zoo last month! I still don't know what kind of flower it was, and I can't recall in detail how it looked, but anyway I decided to try and recreate it! :)

Aiming to make the design look as delicate as the flower itself, I chose a pinkish nude color for the base :) To make the flower pop a little bit, and for fun sake just keeping it kind of cartoon-y looking, I outlined it with black acrylic paint.







This adorable nail polish is from Kiko in the number 507 Blush. Two coats, good coverage, beautiful shine and only 1.90 Euros! Having pretty polished nails doesn't necessarily have to be dead expensive. Of course there's still a big difference between discount and luxury, but what I'm trying to say is, that it isn't about just the brand, it's how you use what you've got :)

Maybe I did go a little overboard guys - huuuge Kiko haul while in Italy! HUGE! I can only say that perhaps I bought too many nail polishes *wink wink*... Maybe I should give some of them away, what do you say?

Anyway, that's it for today and I'll see you in a couple of days! Thank you so much for reading along, you know I appreciate it :) I you want, you can get in touch with me - for example if you have some questions or you'd just like to say hi :) Don't be shy to leave a comment here on my blog - or on Facebook and Instagram. I promise I don't bite! Also don't forget to check out the other girls' creations :) Tell them I sent you! ;)

Stay polished<3

  3. I believe it to be impossible to have TOO many polishes - but by all means, yes - please do give some of them away, heehe ;)

    1. Hahaha! Why did I know you'd react to that statement!? :D To be honest I reformulated that sentence like 20 times, until I came to a deeper understanding within myself :) Ah, I felt so reasonable and... proud! But let's face it hun - that understanding is miles away, when I'm actually shopping for nail polish :P
      And of course thanks love! <3 Yes try a couple and see if you like 'em :)

  10. This is a lovely tutorial and you’re right about the accent nail … the minimalist design really sets off the floral nails beautifully. Thanks for sharing this lovely post.
