spring beauty: JINsoon tulip-inspired manicure

it's the season of beautiful bouquets, bright, vibrant color, and all things pretty…

isn't it fabulous? 

to celebrate this {and mother's day}, the most awesome nail guru, Jin Soon Choi {founder of the JINsoon Nail Lacquer line and Jin Soon Hand & Foot Spas in nyc} has created a cheerful, tulip-inspired nail look that you can easily recreate!

here's how to do it:

*file and shape your nails to a natural square shape.
*apply a base coat {like JINsoon Power Coat}.
*apply a pink-blush shade on the entire nail bed {polish shade used: JINsoon Dolly Pink}.
*apply a deep pink/berry polish color using a thin brush to create the tulip petals {JINsoon Cherry Berry shade used}. 
*starting at the cuticle area, draw a straight line down towards the tip of the nail, curving left ¾ of the way down to create an arch and then fill in the shape. repeat on the right side of the same nail to create a mirroring shape.
*finish with a top coat {like JINsoon Top Gloss} for a lasting glossy finish.

so pretty, don't you think? will you try this?
