Would you believe that I originally started The Lilly Mint Blog as a nail art blog…. Which is a bit of a laugh really as I discovered pretty quickly that nail art really isn’t my strong suit. I absolutely love having my nails painted, and as a former nail biter, I find that a bit of colour on my nails is the perfect deterrent. I do really wish I was more talented at nail art, as some of the designs that I come across online absolutely blow me away. The time and dedication that goes into some of these nail art creations is absolutely astounding and there are some incredibly talented people out there! Unfortunately I’m not quite as ambidextrous as I had hoped I might be, so one hand usually turns out looking like it was attacked with nail polish by a small child.
While I love having my nails painted, sometimes I get sick of painting them just one colour and I want to jazz it up a bit. Luckily, I’ve come across this incredibly simple yet effective nail design that can be done in any colour that you wish! I chose the colour combination of bright orange, aqua and white as these colours are just so fun and bright for spring. All of the polishes that I used are from Australis Cosmetics, as I find these have a decent lasting time, and provide a very smooth finish. The colours I chose were Citrus (bright orange), Aqua, and Sitting On a Cloud (the most perfect opaque white), as well as their clear top/base coat.
