Bright Tropical Floral Nails

Okay, so I don’t think there is anything untried about this mani. I was just in the mood for some really bright, non-winter nails. I’m okay with it!

I was in a bit of a funk and I wanted my nails to be bright and cheerful. I chose lots of bright colors to work with and went to town:

I started off with painting two coats of Sally Hansen – Pink Coconut on my pointer and pink nails. Then I painted two coats of Barielle – Going to the Chapel on my middle and ring nails. I applied one coat of Seche Vite to help with the drying time.

Once they were dry, I dotted the pink nails with white and set about doing the florals. I used me fine liner brush to paint on the flowers – I didn’t have much of a plan in mind, so I just kind of doodled whatever came to mind.

Once I was done, I topped everything with Seche Vite and once that was dry, a coat of matte top coat.


  • Essie – Grow Stronger
  • Barielle – Going to the Chapel
  • Sally Hansen – Pink Coconut
  • Sally Hansen – Coral Reef
  • Sally Hansen – Sun Kissed
  • Nicole by OPI – Sweet on Pete
  • Funky Fingers – Bizerk  Turq
  • Seche Vite – Dry Fast Top Coat
  • NYC – Matte Me Crazy Top Coat

I loved this mani and it really helped brighten my day! There are a lot of colors involved, but I could have simplified it pretty easily. I wish I had gone into the floral details with a bit more of a plan, but I still think it turned out good.
