NOTD: Spring Lilacs

Hey everyone!!  One of my favorite flowers are lilacs, and since they should be blooming anytime soon I decided to paint some on my nails!  Here's what I ended up with:

I started by applying Essie's "Topless and Barefoot" for a neutral base.

Next I drew on some brown branches with a bobby pin:

Then I drew the purple flowers, simply by layering dots over the branches with a bobby pin:

Finally, I added leaves, purple corners on the rest of the nails, and glitter! :)

For the purple corners I used a pencil brush from Coastal Scents.  I used a pin to define the leaves with some more brown.

Here are the products I used:
