Hello and happy Wednesday lovelies! Is anyone else out there supposed to be having ridiculously hot weather today? It’s supposed to be 90 degrees today, and I am not looking forward to it haha. My apartment doesn’t have air conditioning, so it basically turns into a little sauna. Which actually leads me into today’s nail art! The Digit-al Dozen group is still tackling rainforest nails, and my look for today got a little tropical. So, let’s get to it!

Here is what I used:

These nails are probably leaning a little more towards tropical beach, but this image (that I believe is by Lilly Pulitzer) popped up when I was searching for rainforest prints. So, I’m going to run with it haha! I mean who can argue against wearing some bright nails on such a hot day like today?

  1. Start three coats of Ellie.
  2. Dry brush on a little bit of Disco Ball.
  3. Once that’s dry, paint on the leaves using the other polishes watered down with a little bit of acetone and a detail brush.
  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with a coat of Glossy Glam.

So, what do you guys think? At first, I wasn’t super into this look but seeing these photos now is changing my mind! Abstract designs are difficult for me, because I prefer geometric patterns with bold lines and shapes but I can get down with these. Sarah from 25 Sweetpeas is the absolute queen when it comes to nail art like this. So, make sure to go give her a visit if this kind of nail art interests you! Anyways, make sure to leave me a comment down below with your thoughts. nails, nail art, nail polish, rainforest, leaves, bright, polish those nails, macro
