Floral Nail Art - China Glaze Avant Garden Collection


Happy Tuesday friends! I normally wouldn't do two nail posts in a row, but I couldn't help myself. I am in love with my nails right now! This upcoming collection from China Glaze, cleverly called Avant Garden, is just too irresistible! It contains two different hue choices... one being bright, cheery and vivid, while the other plays with pastels and soft dreamy tones. I got my hands on some of the pastel shades, and one vibrant coral shade. I thought it was only fitting that I do a little floral nail art with some of them!

From left to right: Tart-y For The Party, Keep Calm Paint On, Pink-ie Promise, Mimosas Before Manis, and Dandy Lyin' Around. View the other shades here.


For this nail art, I used Keep Calm Paint On (mint), Mimosas Before Manis (coral), Dandy Lyin' Around (vanilla white) and Running in Circles (green) from their previous Cirque du Soleil collection. I didn't take shots while doing this look, but made you a little graphic so you can see how easily it is done. All you need is a nail art brush, or a thin paintbrush.


If you love this collection of colours, you'll have to wait until March to grab some from your beauty supply store or salon. In the meantime, try this look out with some of your own polishes, and you can still enter the OPI giveaway here!
