Feeling Tropical with simple Floral Nail Art

Last week I posted a zebra print nail art design for the #31dc2016weekly nail art Instagram tag, and this week I have another installment to show you. The theme for this week’s prompt was flowers, so I did a pretty pink and white floral nail art design. It took hardly any time at all but it looks really cute and tropical, which is perfect for a summer weekend!

What I used

The floral nail art I have to show you today was done with a MoYou London stamping plate. This plate if from the Tropical Collection and I chose a big Hawaiian flower to stamp. My base polish is Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in the shade OMGhost, which is a crisp white. It took me two coats to get perfectly opaque white nails. I have recently become a big fan of white nails and left them plain for a few hours before adding my floral nail art on top.

The nail polish I used to stamp the flowers over my white base was China Glaze Winter Berry, which is a lovely berry red from an old holiday collection. I love this shade on my nails and will have to swatch it soon to show you. I promise it is a red polish in real life, but when I stamped it for my floral nail art it totally turned pink. I think it might be because it was such a thin layer used to stamp, and it was layered over a bright white base. Either way, the floral nail art design worked well with pink flowers so it still turned out fine even though I meant for it to be red.

I have actually used this MoYou London stamping plate for a different floral nail art look a few weeks ago, which you can check out here.

What do you think of my white and pink/red floral nail art? I like how tropical it looks and it makes me think of a Hawaiian vacation, which is nice to daydream about when it looks like I will have a few rainy days ahead of me.
