Quick NOTW: April Showers

Hello friends! It looks like spring's come early this year (at least to where I am). The ground's usually still got some slush and snow on the ground this time of year, but this year's totally different. We've already several days where had the temperature above 20 degrees celsius and everything is already so beautiful and green. They say that April shower bring May flowers and is it every true! Some flowers are already booming but I can see all kinds of flower already spouting and forming bulbs. I even passed by a couple of gorgeous cherry blossom trees the other day. The house I used to live in had a cherry blossom tree in front of every house and it was just so amazingly beautiful come springtime when all the trees on the street would bloom!
This manicure was inspired not by the blooming flowers, however, but by the frequent rainy days we've been getting. An umbrella print is something that I've been wanting to do for a while, but this really did not turn out how I wanted it to. The umbrellas were okay, but there was too much negative space left in between and the nails just looked empty. I used rain drops to fill in the leftover space but it just turned out looking quite odd. I think the individual umbrellas really needed to be much closer together, with maybe just one or two rain drops in between. I definitely want to re-try doing an umbrella print design some day in the future and I hope it turns out way better!

Quick NOTW: Easter Nails

Hello friends! How have you all been? I Have the most adorable nail art to share with you today! Adorable little Easter bunnies! Easter is probably one of the cutest holidays, commercially speaking of course. Who doesn't like cute fluffy bunnies, little chicks and egg shaped chocolates? I simply can't wait to get my hands on some Cadbury Creme Eggs and some Mini Eggs, those things taste amazing. I wish creme eggs were available all year round in stores. I've saw a basket of Oreo creme eggs at the store a couple of weeks ago, but due to being in a rush, I didn't buy any! Now, I'm searching high and low for the Oreo ones,but to no avail. Maybe I'll get lucky this week as Easter draws more near...
It has come to my attention that I've only shared pictures of the designs on my cinderella hand in the past several posts. My left hand is still quite shaky, but I can see some definite improvement! Although it's still very strange to see two contrasting designs on my hands, it's definitely more exciting; plus, I get to post more often. I have no idea why it took me so long to start doing this!

Quick NOTW: Simple White Flowers

Hello friends! How are you all enjoying ping thus far? It was beautiful and sunny here for a couple of  days, but I awoke to a blanket of snow covering everything this morning! Hopefully we won't see any more snow this month, but Canadian weather is just so unpredictable. I'm itching for all the petty flowers to start sprouting and blooming already. I'm really hoping to add some more cuties to my little succulent collection. I'm really looking forward to possibly acquiring some adorable sedums, they are just so adorable! Anyway, in anticipation for spring, I did these really simple and cute white flowers on my cinderella hand this week. My non-dominant hand has been getting a bit rusty lately and these cute flowers were great practice.
This adorable pastel purple colour is "Sittin' Pretty" by Essie, and it's such a perfectly cute spring colour. The rest of the design was done using acrylic paint.
