Nature-inspired summer nails

Hello 🙂

Today I would like to show you a manicure that was inspired by the summer sun shining through juicy green tree leaves 🙂 If you don’t know what I’m talking about, here’s a photo of what I saw through my window when I was planning this look:


I’ve always loved the sun glistening through the leaves, it feels very summery and happy 🙂

Anyway, sentiments aside, here’s the look I came up with:


It was really super easy to do, using one of my favourite techniques of all times – sponging. For a rougher texture I opted for a dish sponge as they tend to be more ‘bubbly’ and ‘airy’. I first painted my two accent nails dark green (Sally Hansen Ever Green, really beautiful, juicy green) and then using a tiny bit of the sponge I lightly dabbed some neon green (Astor 326) and some pale yellow (Ciaté Loop the Loop). That’s it! I added two layers of a fast drying topcoat to even out the surface before taking the photos, but the whole manicure took maybe 30 minutes in total, so it was really quite fast and simple 🙂

For the other nails I used Ciaté Sand Dune on my pinky and Moo Moo’s Signatures The Unwanted Visitor on my thumb and index finger + fast drying topcoat.

Here are some photos of my manicure in the direct sunlight, where you can see the holo glitters in The Unwanted Visitor. Soooo pretty!


As a bonus, a little macro of my thumb 🙂


That’s it for today, I hope you enjoyed this simple look 🙂

See you soon!
