H&M Spring Nails

I went to Finland two weeks ago and I bought these from H&M. 
I couldn't decide which one to get, so I got them both.

First set: Gray, Light Purple, Dark Purple and Coral.
I used only one coat and they looked great.
I love the colors. My favorites are Light Purple and Coral, which has nice gold sheen to it.
Second set: White, Beige, Brown and Blue
Again I used only one coat each, except white. I used two coats of white.
Here my favorites are beige and blue.


Overall, I'm really happy with my purchase, the colors are great and really pigmented. You'll get the best result with two coats.
The price is also really good - one set cost 3.95€
The polishes stay on without chipping 4-5 days. Pin It Now!

Psychedelic Flowers



I really like this design. It's floral, fun and summery.

The only tool I used to do this design was a dotter. 

The pictures didn't came out that good, but they look better when you enlarge them.

I'm really into floral prints lately. Do you like florals?

Cherry Blossoms




For me, one of the best things about springtime is when cherry trees start to blossom. It's so beautiful!

I used light pink color for the base, brown for the branches, pink pearl color for the petals and candy-pink for the middle part of the blossoms. 

What's your favorite part about spring?

Put Your Paws Up!


 
I bought BeYu Mat Top Coat. I've been wanting such top coat for the longest time.
I really like nails with matte finish and finally tried it out myself.
The paw prints were made with a dotter. It's really easy and the result is cute.

Do you like matte finish nails?

Daria


 


I recently started watching the show "Daria" again. It was on MTV from 1997-2001 and I use to love it when I was younger.

And considering my limited artistic abilities, I'd say the nails came out pretty good.

Do you remember the show? Did you watch it?

Roses are red

Since it's springtime I wanted to try out some new florals.



I really like this design, it's pretty and quite easy to do.

I tried two different methods to do the flowers. To the index finger and to the ring finger I did the lighter color first and then painted the petals with darker red.
To other fingers I didn't do the lighter base and painted the petals with two tones of red. Pin It Now!
