Have you ever seen a music video and just LOVEEEEED the looks in it?? Like Katy Perry videos! They're all so colourful and happy and bright! Xun and I went to Bangkok with a group of friends in May and during the trip, one of our friends- HELLO JIAMIN!- got the song Primadonna by Marina and the Diamonds stuck in our heads for the entire duration of the trip. When I came home, I immediately went to look for it on Youtube and I loved Marina's look in the video! Her flippy voluminous hair, winged eyeliner and a small heart at the corner of her eye, and her NAILS!!!!

So cute right?! When I saw them in the video I thought "I could do that!!" And so I did, once I finally got my hands on some mint green polish.
Here's my attempt! My base colour is China Glaze Refresh Mint. For a pastel colour, Refresh Mint has a great formula! I used to have Essie Mint Candy Apple and the formula was just TERRIBLE. It was streaky and a nightmare to paint, though the colour was pretty!
I did the flowers with a dotting tool but only got the hang of after a few attempts (as you can see from the off centre flowers on my pinkie and ring finger haha). I might try a striping brush next time so that I can draw more petals! It's quite similar to my previous Spring nails tutorial, except it's just one flower in the middle!
Where do you gather your inspiration to do your nails??
