The Digit-al Dozen Does Spring - Day 1 - Lily of the Valley

Hi everyone! It is Digit-al Dozen week again! This month's theme is Spring! I'm looking forward to seeing lots of happy bright manis this week from all the ladies. I'm not-so-secretly hoping for lot of florals because that is soooo my thing! 

The Digit-al Dozen does Spring - Day 1 - Lily of the Valley

I'm starting off with a flower design today for Day 1! Each Spring, I enjoy seeing lots of Lily of the Valley! There is some in our garden and it appears here everywhere at florists. It is traditional on May 1st to give Lily of the Valley (muguet) for good luck! Apparently, a stem with 13 bells/flowers on it is considered particularly lucky!

I started out my mani with 3 thin coats of Essie Bikini So Teeny, a pale blue with a subtle silver shimmer. This may be okay in two coats also but I preferred to use 3 thin ones for an even finish. I then used acrylic paints and a fine detail brush to freehand my flowers. I finished everything off with a coat of topcoat as always. 

I can't wait to see what everyone else has done for Day 1! Be sure to check them out as well!
