Twin Post with The Polished Fangirl: Hibiscus

I’m back with another twin post. This month I was paired up with Erika from The Polished Fangirl for the theme of flowers. Our flower was hibiscus which we were really pleased about as it’s a favourite for both of us.

We agreed that a flower like this requires some bright tropical shades and wanted to use a turquoise background and a pink flower. I was inspired by this beautiful photo and while browsing what other people had done with hibiscus nail art came across this beautiful manicure by Pretty Project which is almost exactly what Erika and I had been talking about doing.

Initially I didn’t intend to do an accent nail with rhinestones like she had done but after a horrible break on my index finger earlier in the week I thought it was the best way to hide a nail that’s not a particularly nice shape at the moment!

I’m really pleased with how this mani turned out. Make sure you check out Erika’s hibiscus nails and the other participants in this month’s flower themed twin post through the inlinkz. (We’re posting all this week so check back later if it’s looking a bit empty at the moment!)
