30 Day Flower Challenge Day 26: Tulip

I love those long rows of tulips that you can look out over and just see flowers for what seems like miles. When I think of tulips, that is always what I think of. I  have a few photographs I took last year at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens that are like that...but on a smaller scale. As I was looking through them, I got my inspiration. Here is an image I found that shows what I am going for with this mani.

So I decided to go for a dotted gradient. I started of with a green base, using China Glaze Four Leaf Clover, and added dots in Julep Mandy using my dotting tools. It looks a bit Christmas-y, but I like it. :)


Here is China Glaze Four Leaf Clover by itself. My camera washed it out pretty bad here - it's actually darker/brighter than this.


Thanks for checking in and be sure to check out what the others did for this challenge!
