Happy Spring!!!!

I thought I'd try some different type of nail art's my garden of Spring flowers!

Base is Finger Paints Aren't You Glad-iolous available at Sally's. To be honest, I picked these up more because I thought the rings that came with them were super cute...I don't really think these colours are all that unique.....

Then used an assortment of rhinestones to create the flowers and butterfly. I haven't done a whole lot with rhinestones...usually just add one here or there for the centre of a flower pretty much...that's it.

These two pix have had a coat of clear to hopefully keep the stones on my fingers for a day or so! I don't usually have the patience for all the stone fiddling....this didn't turn out too shabby except the ring finger...probably should have added one less stone...oh time...and every mani error is just reason to redo my nails!

Here's the polish by itself...

Spring is one of my favourite times of the year! I always look at it as a time of new beginnings...and always looks forward to trees buds blooming, the tulips and daffodils sprouting and birds returning from the south! (Not to mention the start of spring means fresh maple syrup is around the corner! mmmmm!) Far too early for any of this to happen here in Ontario...but lets hope Spring is right around the corner!

Thanks for looking!


  1. Spring = flower!
    cute maniii!!

  2. that looks like it took a while, super adorable and id do that if i had the patience haha

  3. Very spring-y and cute mani. I bet getting those gems positioned can take a lot of time and work.

  4. I can't say how long it took me to do my nails...I'm one of those gals that time stands still when I'm doing them...sometimes an hour or two passes before I know it!

    Some of the stones were super easy to place and put on...the all round flowers and the dragonfly wasn't too hard to do at all and I would definately do them again. The biggest challenges were the other two...particularly the the purple one that didn't work out too well...and trying to come up with something that didn't look too too terrible and yet fill in the gap when I knew they weren't going to fit well. In hindsight, I also think I should have interchanged those two designs and put the larger design on the middle finger and it may have sat better on the nail...hopefully this makes sense!

  5. I love this! So excited that we can do spring manicures now that it is officially spring! This is a great start to the season! xoxo

  6. Very pretty ! The nail polish color actually reminds me of Essie Lilacism (which I love!)

  7. Tasha: You are right-all these FP spring colours are not that unique-but I wanted the super cute rings that went with them!

  8. So nice all those sparkling stones <3
