Petite Rainbow Flowers
If these aren’t the most adorable nails ever, we don’t know what are. Everything from the tiny, cutesy flowers in bright neon colours, to their glittery centre, these nails are gorgeous. The nude base makes the bright colours of the flowers stand out even more.
These nails feature hyper-realistic designs over a translucent, ethereal-looking base. The nails are done in a way that features pressed flowers, and some beautiful flowers and even a cute little bird and butterfly. These nails scream spring, and we can’t imagine anyone not falling in love with them.
Funky French Florals

These might be some of the most unique floral nails we’ve ever seen, even though they’re so subtle and minimalistic. The matte orange nails in contrast with the translucent white nail featuring the delicate floral motifs are too pretty to put into words. Anyone who doesn’t want big, obvious looking flowers on their nails can go for this subtle beauty.
