Aqua Floral Phone Case Inspired Nails

Hello everyone!

I didn't have a lot of time for nails this week, but I really wanted to try out a freehand floral pattern. I really miss doing freehand designs! I used to only do designs like this but I guess my style has changed since then.

Anyway, I got the inspiration for this floral pattern from my sister's phone case. It has such a pretty floral pattern and I really wanted to recreate it on my nails! The design didn't turn out quite how I wanted it to, but I decided to post this anyway.


I used quite a few polishes for this design. For the base, I used China Glaze "Too Yacht to Handle", and on my ring finger I did a silver glitter accent nail, using Colores de Carol "Bling" (3 coats on it's own). For the floral pattern, I used LVX "Mynt", Essie "Lilacism", Color Club "Macaroon Swoon", Salon Perfect "Sugar Cube" and Nicole by OPI "That's What I Mint".

Here's a close up of the floral pattern. I wish that there was more of a color difference from the mint green and the base! I feel like it just doesn't stand out enough...

The color of the phone case is actually a little bit more of a muted blue, but I loooove "Too Yacht to Handle". It's such a gorgeous color! I also love it paired with this glitter. You guys know that I can't do a mani without a little bit of bling!

If you want to see how I did this mani, check out my YouTube tutorial here:

On a side note, I reached 50,000 followers on Instagram this week which is absolutely crazy! Thank you to everyone who has followed me there.
