Nails Inc Floral Richmond Gardens for #ManiMonday

We live in a pretty active neighborhood. Unless it’s raining or snowing there are always people outside and, lately, they’ve been tackling yard work. Now, I have the blackest of thumbs and the boyfriend can do general cleanup but he’s not going to be starring on HGTV anytime soon. Regardless, I do love see all the flowers popping up around us and it inspired today’s Mani Monday featuring the new Nails Inc Floral glitters.

I started my manicure with a base of Zoya Ling ($9, I really love this color and it’s just dark enough to make the light colored glitters really pop.

I then added two coats of Nails Inc Floral in Richmond Gardens ($11, using my Dab, Dip, Glide technique. It’s the only way to make sure you get even glitter coverage. Though, the large flower glitters are not easy to apply. You have to dig in the bottle a bit and place them on the nail. Totally worth the effort as the flowers really stand out.

I added a top coat because the Nails Inc Floral polishes dry a bit satin. And it helps seal in the flowers, which, depending on placement, don’t always sit flat.

    I didn’t think I was going to like the floral glitter very much, but it’s really cute! :)

    I love all your nail designs. I have a question you’ve probably answered before. No matter what I do I cannot get a manicure to look as good as in the salon when I do it at home. I’ve studied and read and gotten good materials. What am I doing wrong?

    • Hi Meghan. That’s a pretty open ended question. Without knowing your exact technique, it’s hard to troubleshoot. You’re more than welcome to email me a more detailed account and I can try and see where any issue may be. Tell me what products you’re using and they steps you take and I’ll try to help.

    I wish I could show my manicure. I’m kinda proud of it. lol. I did a sunset gradient with blue, pink, orange and yellow, and painted black palm trees on it. I love tropical anything! I’m not on Instagram or Twitter, though. :(
    I’m LOVING your manicure today, Michelle! Great combination, and I HAVE to get both of those!

    LOL my Monday Mani is a version of your gradient with the white stripes underneath it. I flopped the colors and used different shades of blues/greens. I used For Audrey by China Glaze on the top; can’t remember which blue I used but it was a Pure Ice shade I bought last summer.
