A Winter memory - Tulips on Gardenia

Here it is pretty much summer already. The temperature is in the high 80's (about 30 degrees Celsius)  with a bright sun and lots of dust in the air. But in the evening it is still a little chilly, as a small reminder of the winter that just passed. So I decided to try some flowers mani i've seen at Raggio di Luna Nails who has some of the most beautiful flower manis i've seen! what I ended up with was a very wintery mani.
The Nail Junkie Spring Pastel Gardenia

The base I used is Gardenia, one of the new releases to The Nail Junki's Spring Pastel collection. This is such a beautiful satin white polish with great formula that needs 2-3 coats for full opacity and dry to this gorgeous shimmery matte finish. I drew the tulips using Nails Inc. Henrietta Street, Careline #387 and Orly Lucky Duck. I added just a tiny bit of holo green to the leaves using Chirality Kale.  Of course, my tulips are not as gorgeous as Raggio di Luna's but I like them nonetheless.
