Create a whimsical manicure with star-shaped flowers

Nature’s bounty is a blessing in spring and summer. If you love flowers, but are worried that your painting skills aren’t advanced enough to create them, this simplified manicure will change your mind.
To try out this look without committing to a full manicure, paint one accent nail periwinkle blue. The whimsical flowers are shaped like stars instead of circles. Create several peach, white and silver blossoms, then add contrasting centers and a few seafoam green leaves to complete the look. If you love it, feel free to add a few blossoms to your other nails as well. After all, this is your garden!
