YouTube Nail Art Week - Grown-Up Floral Print

Hey guys!

Welcome to Day 4 of YouTube Week! I hope you've been enjoying this series so far!

Today's design is in pretty stark contrast to yesterday's bright, neon rainbow coloured one. This one is a bit more subdued and sophisticated. I love both styles, so I guess that makes me an equal opportunity nail artist, haha.


This design comes from user MrCandiipants, whose videos I really love. I knew I wanted to recreate one of her designs this week, but I had a really hard time picking because there's quite a few I want to try!


I don't own either of the polishes she used for her design, but I rummaged through my stash for similar shades. My base polish is Illamasqua Load, one of my all-time favourite polishes, and the print was done using OPI Here Today...Aragon Tomorrow.

HTAT isn't totally opaque, so I did have to go over the print twice in order to get the colour payoff I wanted. That made this a lot more time consuming, so if you're going to give this print a try, I would definitely suggest using a polish that provides more opacity.


I love this print so much it's freaking ridiculous. I definitely need a little more practice at it since her original is a million times better than my recreation, but I'm happy with regardless.

Thanks for looking!
