Nail Art | Rifle Paper Co. Inspired

I am pretty darn excited about these nails. I feel like it's been forever since I did a proper nail art. My latest had been the Marble Mani and before that was ages ago with Sugar Skulls (October! Eek!). I love a good floral mani but felt like switching it up a bit. Thankfully inspiration came with the arrival of my April Birchbox.

I love Rifle Paper Co.'s sketchy abstract florals, and it was just the change of pace for a fun floral mani. The shapey nature lent itself easily to nail art. I used a couple of different sized dotting tools to draw the leaves and flowers, and a million nail polish colours.

Coral | Julep Teri
Dark Blue-Toned Green | American Apparel Hunter
Red | Zoya Sooki
Cool Toned Pink | Butter London Fruit Machine
Dark Yellow-Toned Green | Zoya Noot (this is more gray-toned)
Bright Teal Green | Essie First Timer
Primary Yellow | Color Club Almost Famous
White | Color Club Mod in Manhattan (this is slightly off-white)

Super fun for spring, and you can have fun with the patterns. It's not too difficult to do; I was even able to do my opposite hand without it looking too disadvantaged. Nail art is always time-consuming, so I like to do it while watching a Netflix series marathon or listening to my favourite albums. During this one, I was singing along to Brand New's discography (excited for the new album!)

With all of BB's pretty boxes, maybe I should do a BB inspired nail art series...Hmm...
