As a beauty queen and beauty blogger, people just expect you to be inherently skilled at your own hair, makeup, and nails. Well, truth be told, I’m not exceptional at any of the above, but I’m especially horrible at nails. I’m going to blame it on the Gastritis, but my hands shake constantly (no, I’m not a drug addict), so intricate nail designs quickly turn into beauty blunders, which result in emergency manicure trips costing around $45 a pop. Ergo, this time around I decided to try an easy spring flower theme with Revlon’s brightest nail colors.
I knew I wanted something work-appropriate yet seasonally colorful, so I found myself at Walgreens… again (I swear I could live there), since they have such an amazing collection of the most beautiful nail shades, especially for spring and summer. In case they don’t have what you’re looking for, you can shop brands like Revlon in-store or online for the same great price. After an internal debate that perpetuated for over 20 minutes, I decided to go with a pink/coral/teal trio for an easy floral spring design.
I ended up choosing Revlon’s irresistable Bubbly, Trendy, and Fearless enamel nail colors for my floral design. I think they pair so well together, and their names alone had me swooning. I’m an easy sell apparently.
I painted my toes the bright Fearless coral color, since spring nail trends are all about being bold and fun, and since I work in a financial planning firm, I decided on a clean, professional, and polished floral theme for my fingernails. The best part? This nail design is so so so simple, even I can do it. Plus, Revlon’s nail enamel is gorgeously smooth, and its exclusive Chip Defiant™ formula makes it incredibly easy to use.
Here are the super easy steps:
Start off with completely clean nails and apply Revlon’s Quick Dry Base Coat. This creates an amazing long-lasting base and extends the life of your manicure substantially. I added in Revlon’s Pure Pearl white nail enamel to the mix for the accent nail, and I applied two coats to my accent index fingers on each hand. Then, I painted two coats of Revlon’s Bubbly on the rest of my nails.
Once my accent nail was dry, and I mean completely dry, I dropped a pinch of Revlon’s Fearless color onto a piece of paper, then dabbed the open end of a bobby pin into the color and made five medium-sized dots in a circular pattern on my index finger. I also dabbed on a quick dot of glittery silver in the middle to give it some pizzazz.
Lastly, I dropped another pinch of Revlon’s Trendy color onto a sheet of paper, and with a tiny nail art design brush, painted on two tiny lines coming out of each side of the flower. If you make a mistake, dip the nail art design brush into the white Pure Pearl polish as an eraser. Once it’s absolutely dry, apply a few coats of Revlon’s Quick Dry Top Coat, which sets in 60 seconds, to all of your nails, and you’re good to go!
