Manicure Monday - Coral Cactus Nails!

Happy Manicure Monday! I'm on a roll this week and last week with actual nail art on my mani monday posts - woo hoo! 

Manicure Monday - Coral Cactus Nails!
Some polishes may have been sent as PR samples - this post 

This whole month our #CBBxManiMonday group is doing things a little bit different and we are searching #summernails and picking our inspiration from what we find - this is such a fun way to find some new inspiration! 

Manicure Monday - Coral Cactus Nails!

So, searching the hashtag, I saw so many cacti nails and all with coral polishes, so I had to jump on to the coral cactus bandwagon asap and I'm not going to lie, I loooove how these turned out! Also, Living Coral is still the colour of the year, so I'm happy to see this trend continuing in to the year!

-Moyra Top Coat for Nail Stamping
-nail dotting tool and nail art brush

To create this nail art look, I started with nail cleanser and base coat. Then I started with the darker coral polish and painted two coats of the polish on the nails I was not doing nail art on. Then I used 2 coats of a lighter pink peach polish for the nails I was doing art on so it would stand out more!

Then, using the green nail art polish, I freehanded the shapes of the cacti on my nails. Then with the light green polish and a nail art brush, I just painted a few lines throughout the cacti to give them dimension. And, I added a couple coral dots with the dotting tool on the top of one type of cactus for flowers!
