Spring Inspired Nails

Hello, everyone!

Today I’m sharing with you my spring inspired nails. I’m not the best at nail art, but I felt it would be fun to do, and share! I’m super excited to create nail art inspired by my favorite season. I love spring! When I think of spring I think of beautiful flowers, the sun, the crisp fresh air, and this is the season where I like to add a lot of color to my wardrobe as well as my makeup, and nails!

I was looking for some inspiration, and I have a scarf that I love to wear in the springtime it has a lot of beautiful flowers almost like watercolors, but I thought it would be too difficult to do since as I mentioned earlier I’m not the best at nail art. So instead Saturday night I was looking around, and on my dresser I had a ton of thank you cards that I give out to my giveaway winners. The card says thanks and its designed with beautiful flowers, and bright colors. One part in particular drew my attention and it was the letter a on the card it’s bright green with pretty white daisies on it. I’m like that’s it, I got it!  So down below you will see my finished work, and the tools you will need to create my spring inspired nails.

The tools you’ll need

Whatever inspires you in my case the thank you card

Nail polish remover my favorite is the Sally Hansen Extra Strength formula

Q-tips Precision Tips for easy clean up if you make any mistakes, or messes

Nail art tools, I don’t own any so I used a bobby pin to create the dots

And any scrap paper, or cardboard so that you can pour your nail polish over it (you will use it for dipping your bobby pin:)


Nail polish I used plus top coat & cuticle oil (optional)

Sinful Colors Professional nail polish in INNOCENT 944

Sinful Shine With Gel Tech in BANANAPPEAL 1218

Kiss Nail Art Paint in White

Julie G Jet Set Quick-Dry Top Coat


Julep Essential Cuticle Oil


Here is my final look and the steps I took to create my spring inspired nails


As you can see it was easy, and it does not have to be perfect because every flower isn’t perfect, so if you make any mistakes just start over again or gently tap over any mistakes with Q-tips Precision Tips dipped in nail polish remover.  I love finishing any of my nail polish looks with my favorite Julep Essential Cuticle Oil. It makes your nails look healthy, and gives your cuticle and hands a glossy finish:)

I hope that you enjoyed my first ever nail art blog post, and I would love to know do you have any ideas for another nail art look/tutorial? Also, if you’re looking to update your nail polish collection be sure to check out Julep’s new nail polish page it’s filled with tons of nail polishes, plus it also features shades that were raved about on Lucky Magazine, and Glamour!

Thanks for reading!;)

I get to enjoy breakfast in bed, and I’m able to stay in my pajamas all day. Yes! I just love it when my hubby, and children show how much I mean to them:) But, this year I think it would be so much fun if my mom, mother-in-law and I have a mom’s night out! Maybe we would go out to eat, get our nails professionally done, and check out Mom’s Night Out the movie:) We would then come home and have dessert with my boys!
