The Digit-al Dozen does Countries + Cultures with Dutch Tulip Fields

 Nothing to Disclose 

YOU GUYS! It's time for July's Digit-al Dozen theme and I'm fairly excited because it's a theme I got to choose. This month we're tackling the theme of countries and cultures! I am really looking forward to see what the other talented women come up with for this theme. Today I've started with an abstract landscape design inspired by the Netherlands and their infamous tulips. Check 'em out.

The Design

I was very inspired by the aerial photos of beautiful, colorful Dutch tulip fields (see them here). Luckily this meant I got to do a fun, colorful dotticure!! On my ring finger I tried to do a perspective view of a field of tulips, with some freehand buds.

The Polishes

My base color was CND Green Scene and I used a variety of bright blossom-inspired polishes, and I mixed some of them together to get a better gradient of colors between the 'rows' of tulips. If you would like to know any particular polishes please just ask me below in the comments!!

I was really pleasantly surprised with how much I liked this manicure in the end! Abstract, but colorful and very fun.
