nail art: tumblr floral nails

I've done this nail art quite a number of times already. I really like it because there's coral and mint green in it! Got the design from tumblr actually. Like, this:

So pretty right. I tell you how to replicate. 

Light mint green, darker turquoise, white, coral, gold and pinks for the flowers.

The pictures are self sufficient instructions because there really isn't much to it. Just add a base colour and add a coat of gold for the little finger and middle finger. Then paint stripes for the index and thumb. You can choose to add the turquoise/mint colour as a base then use the other colour as the stripes. Up to you. 

For the flowers, I dotted a few big dots of light pink/purple then used my toothpick and dark pink nail polish to add some details. I draw flowers by dragging from the center to the edges then highlight the rest of the edges like a dotted line. Don't forget to add some leaves. 

AND, I made a matching phone cover because I love the patterns here. 

Nothing new from what I previously did. I used a plain mint green case as a base.
