The Digit-al Dozen Does: Countries & Cultures - Holland - Tulips

Today's design originated from my love of tulips.  Tulips are my second favorite flower.  My favorite part of Spring is when the tulips start growing. I love driving around and seeing all the different colors growing in people's gardens.  Building on this love I was able to create my design using a new technique that I have been wanting to try for awhile.

Day Two - Holland - Tulips

My design started with two coats of Bettina Marshmallow.

I added the outline of my tulips using MoYou Pro 08 and Onix.

Now for the fun part! I have been wanting to try this technique since I first saw it and I am not disappointed!
I used a small nail art brush to add color to my design.  It was just like coloring a picture.
I used Sinful Colors Irish Green for my leaves.

For the tulips I used OPI Sheer Tints.  I did go back over each color to really make them pop.




I am loving my tulips!  They feel and look like Spring! I can't wait to use this technique again!

  4. I love this technique. I have only tried it once, but it was super easy. This is such a pretty mani. It makes me think of Easter because that is when the tulips are in full bloom.
