This week I wanted to do another bright flowery design for Spring, so I created this gradient mani with greens for the fields and blue for the sky, and added some pretty flowers on top šŸ˜‰

I started with my clear base coat, and then a coat of L.A. GirlĀ color ADDICT nail colour ā€“Ā UrgeĀ as my base colour.

I then used a thin sponge, painted a line of each of my 3 colours below on a sheet of hard plastic, and then sponged it onto my nails to create the gradient effect:

Forest fromĀ RevlonĀ Street Wear (very very old, but I just love this colour & canā€™t bring myself to throw it away..)

Next it was time to dot on my flower petals with essence nail art stampy polish – 001Ā stamp me! white, using my essence dotting tool.

And then I used some yellow ‘caviar’ balls for the inside of the flowers, and stuck them down with a polish calledĀ Bright YellowĀ from Top Shine.

Lastly, I added a little sun in the blue sky, on my index, middle and ring fingers, by sticking on a yellow nail art gemstone šŸ™‚

And then 2 coats of clear top coat to protect all the gems and to add some shine.

I know I always say this, but I really LUUUURRVED this mani! It was just so pretty to look at!! šŸ˜€
