Hi all! Belated happy hearts day everyone! ♥♥♥ Hope you had a lovely valentine, as for me I'm very very happy.. ☻ Anyway, Summer is fast approching here in the Philippines... It's very hot here nowadays. For summer nails, I made a simple mani using dried flowers. If you wish to buy some of them, Born Pretty have lots of nail art stuff including dried flowers. I love dried flowers so much. It looks like a lil'garden on my nails. I got the idea of hot air balloon from thriszha, I remember she made a manicure using this image plate last year. I also used konad m57 i.p. cloud design. It reminds me of the Disney movie "Up", my son love that movie so much that he used to watch it every night before going to sleep. He likes Kevin the big bird and the kid named Russell was so cute!
I like the finished product, it's really meant for summer.. Hope you like it too! God Bless you all!!
