Manicure Monday - Green and Gold Foliage Nails!

Happy Long Weekend Manicure Monday! I hope you all are having an amazing long weekend - the weather has been absolutely gorgeous here all weekend! Everything is finally blooming and turning green and this is my favorite weather - I love Spring! Thus, it inspired a lovely foliage manicure!

I'm not going to lie, I loooove how these nails turned out! I love the balance of peach, green and gold and how they all came together! It just feels so Springy and lovely!

I'm not usually a very abstract nail artist; but, these gold stickers really made me want to play! This may be one of my favorite manicures I have ever done!

But really, this Bundle Monster NinaNailedIt Gold Nail Stickers set is so amazing - comes with 4 different sticker sheets with flowers, leaves, diamonds, arrows, brush strokes, and much more! I love the variation in these sheets and really thought they elevated this mani! They are limited edition, so if you are interested, I would scoop them up soon! (I'm in no way affiliated with them, just really like them!)

To achieve this Manicure, the steps I followed were:
1. Nail cleanser and base coat
2. 2 coats base polish - corally pink polish
3. I started by placing a gold sticker from differing edges of each nail (just peel off and apply)
4. Then with a green nail art polish, I added leaves and stems with little leaves - I just varied filling them in and not. (There is no amazing technique to this and leaves and they don't need to be perfect!)
5. Then, I added a couple of smaller gold stickers in open spaces. 
6. Let dry well and add a layer of topcoat. 

I usually like have everything looking the same with my nails; but, again, I love how these turned out! So beautiful and they just scream Spring with the colour combination! 



I'd love to hear your thoughts on this manicure!

    1. Thanks - I love the combo too! I rarely use green in my nail looks; but, thought it pulled these together well!
