Quatre-floral nails 🌸

Another day, another floral design to share with you! Hence the punny blog title! Today’s design is actually inspired by a sponsored ad that popped up in my Instagram feed. I was inspired by the combination of patterns that I decided to create a pretty Spring design with a mixture of patterns–quatrefoil & floral, with a few gold studs to bring the whole manicure together!

For this manicure, the polishes I used were:

  • Base Coat: Nailtek 2
  • Top Coat: Seche Vive
  • YSL Beauty Gris Underground
  • OPI Angel With A Lead Foot
  • OPI Mod About You
  • Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Bourbon Belle
  • Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Rose To The Occasion
  • Sally Hansen MG Little Peony
  • Essence The Green & The Grunge
  • Essie First Timer
  • Sally Hansen MG Super Charge
  • Sally Hansen I ♥️ Nail Art pen in black
  • Bundle Monster Small Detail Brush
  • Bundle Monster medium sized dotting tool
  • What’s Up Nails Moroccan stencils
  • NailStuff.ca Mixed Decoration Nail Wheel in Gold

This design just turned out so fun! I love the combination of everything–colours, patterns & styles. The mixture of pinks (with grey) is so lovely for Spring. & I really, really love how my floral came together. Feels oh so very Spring like to me! & with sunshine & Spring temperatures today, it will be the perfect manicure for enjoying my day off outside today.

I love when my nails come together from random inspiration & turn out being a favourite design for me! Also I totally forgot how perfect this YSL grey was… it has a hint of purple in its undertones which the pink really brings out when they’re paired together. Oooooh between this design on my nails & the sunshine pouring in through my windows as I write this, I’m feeling Spring so much. In fact, since temperatures will be agreeable today, I’ll definitely be pulling out one of my Spring dresses or rompers to wear while adventuring today.

A shot of my pretty floral with the beautiful bouquet of flowers my husband surprised me with the other morning.

Pretty & Prom Inspired!

It’s been a long, long time since my last prom expirence (10 years!) but I always find myself reminiscing when June comes around. I’ve been seeing a whole bunch of pretty dresses around as graduates get ready for their special night, so I thought I would do some pretty prom inspired nails! Back when I went to prom, my nails were always simple: a metallic, a red, some fresh tips. If I were a teenager now, I definitely would go with something more fun! 

I think this design would be perfect for someone going to prom that wants fancy nails that aren’t too over to top (don’t want to outshine that dress!) I went with a pretty peach shade, but you could tailor it to go with whatever colour matched your dress. 

For this manicure, I used:

  • Base Coat: Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat
  • Top Coat: Cutex Quick Dry Top Coat
  • ACO by Ardene Sorbet
  • ACO by Ardene Misty Love
  • Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Buffalo Nickel
  • Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Pretty Piggy
  • Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Little Peony
  • Sally Hansen I ❤️ Nail Art Pen in green
  • Sally Hansen X-treme Wear Kiwi Bikini
  • Xroma Polish & Vinyls Small Moroccan stencil
  • Small dotting tool from Bundle Monster 
  • Small Nail Art Brush from Bundle Monster 


I’m so excited by these, I can’t lie. My floral seriously turned out perfect. & I love the subtle bit of shimmer of the metallic Buffalo Nickel with the pastel floral. Floral is definitely my favourite go-to when it comes to special occasion nails, but I promise it’s not my only go-to! But for special occasions like prom, floral is perfect! It’s like wearing your corsage right on your nails. 

What did you wear on your nails when you went to prom? Did you stay classic, go sparkly or not wear anything at all? Let me know what you think in the comments below!
