Who doesn't love browsing the amazing assortment of nail colors at the drugstore? My collection is almost exclusively made up of drugstore brands because I don't feel the need to look at high end brands when it comes to nail polish. My usual shop of choice is Walgreens because of its convenience and great selection of permanent and limited edition collections. Today, as a part of a #CollectiveBias and #WalgreensBeauty collaboration, I'm sharing my top picks from Essie and Revlon, three beautiful spring appropriate shades that could easily translate into summer colors: Essie Mojito Madness, Essie Serial Shopper, and Revlon Fearless. Keep reading to see my take on spring nail trends...

I didn't stick to only one trend for today's nail design and combined two: ombre and color blocking. The color scheme is very bold and tropical. I strayed away from the typical spring pastels in order to make this a transitional spring-summer nail, but the floral pattern keeps it quintessentially spring inspired.

Here's what you need to do to recreate this design:
01. Using two complimentary colors (in this case a neon salmon orange, Serial Shopper from Essie, and a cherry red, Fearless from Revlon) create a gradient on all of your nails except on your ring finger. Use your preferred technique, I used a craft sponge (spouncer). 

02. Paint your accent nail a solid color, ideally one of the two colors used in the gradient. I used Revlon's Fearless.

03. Using the lightest color from the gradient (Serial Shopper) and a thin pencil brush, create three adjacent ovals. These will be the flower petals. Using the same brush and a green polish, draw leaves on your flowers. I used Mojito Madness from Essie.

Tip: Make sure to give the nail polish enough time to dry between steps. Wait a few hours before adding a shiny topcoat over the final design so the colors don't bleed into one another.

My favorite color ended up being Mojito Madness from Essie. It's a very unique green and has an adorable name. I also loved Revlon's Fearless. I really enjoy their regular nail enamel line with Chip Defiant™ because it's thin, easy to work with, and opaque in one coat.

What will you be wearing on your nails during spring/summer?
