NOTW: Spring Flowers

Spring is finally here so bring on the pastels and flower manicures!

I went through my stash of untrieds and thought Liquid Glam's Sorbet would be perfect for a spring mani.  Sorbet is a milky white base packed with small hexagon shaped pink and green glitter and tiny teal glitter.  This polish goes on real smooth and I had no issues with getting plenty of glitter with a single coat.

For this manicure I used one coat of Sorbet over a white base, Ulta's Snow White.  For the ring finger, I didn't want to go through my box of unorganized polishes to find pastels so instead I decided to blend different colors with white to make them pastels.  I used a thin brush for the grass and a dotting tool for the flowers themselves.

Colors Used:

  • Liquid Glam: Sorbet
  • Ulta: Snow White
  • China Glaze: Running Circles
  • OPI:  Hey Baby
  • Sally Hansen: New Wave Blue
  • Milani: Green Sketch
  • L.A. Colors: Yellow and Bright Green
