Easy Bohemian Mint NAILS with Teal Accents

bohemian nails mint and teal

This manicure is so easy and it’s really become a new favorite. It’s not an overwhelming amount of crazy on your nails but more than just a simple color. I love the pinky/ring/thumb combo vs just the one accent nail, especially when the accent is so minimal like this one. The colors lend themselves well to Summer and a bohemian vibe, which I’m clearly obsessed with lately, so there’s that.

Here’s What I Used…

Mint and teal nail polish

* Mint polish by Francesca’s {I actually love this polish, it stays on forever – and was a gift from my cousin}
* Shimmery Teal by Sinful Colors from the local drugstore
* Seche Vite my favorite top coat.

Here’s How I Did It…

* Start with one coat of mint polish and let dry.

* To each of the nails you wish to add your “nail art” paint a new coat, and while still wet, dab a bit of your teal to the end of your nail and let bleed a little bit. I love how it creates an abstract dot rather than a perfect one, and the hint of shimmer in this particular teal adds to the look.

* Finish with your favorite top coat.

* Yeah, that’s it.

And… Voila!

    WOW! Lava mama! I’ve done the dots on my nails before, but not in teal… these look amazing. Also, love your layering techniques with jewelry. AND THE SWIMSUIT! Amazing. Am I gushing too much?

    I love the mint/teal combo! It’s so funny how two little dots can transform your manicure from minty cute to boho. Thanks for sharing this!

    You and your photographer hubby should work for top magazines and/or cosmetic/fashion companies. Very creative!
