Floral nails are an easy and fun way to add color to your spring beauty regimen. Inspired by the sunflower seeds I just planted this week, I decided to do a sunflower nail art tutorial. This tutorial can be replicated in different colors to replicate daisy flowers or in pastel colors for vintage floral feel. You will need a base color, a contrasting petal color, and a variety of darker colors for the center of the flower including gold glitter. Adding at least three colors in the center adds dimension to the nail art. Click on the photo for the full tutorial at my personal blog at simpleeluxx.blogspot.com

Lace Canvas Art by domestic fashionista
Vintage Inspired Art is made easy with lace and crochet flowers that can be easily glued or taped onto photo albums or photo frames.

Give it try and see how it adds interest to home decor or presents.
