Nail art: Croton plant leafs


A long time ago, I did a nail art based on my big potted plant (it’s called a Spathiphyllum, which sounds like something unpleasant but is just a plant with big green leafs). Recently, I bought a new friend for that plant, which is a Croton (which sounds like something that goes in soup, but is a plant with green/orange/yellow leafs).

So, I decided to do a nail art of that one as well 😉 Its leafs are beautiful, so I did my best to show that on my nails as well.


Tools used:

-Striper brush
-Dotting tool

Nail polishes used:

-Essence Hardening nail base
-NYC – Park Ave
-Essence – We Rock The Green
-Essence – Flashy Pumpkin
-NYC – Lexington Yellow
-Playboy – Anastasia
-Essence Better Than Gel Nails top coat


  1. Apply base coat
  2. Apply two layers of a taupe nail polish
  3. Paint the leafs using green nail polish and a striper brush
  4. Paint some orange and yellow details into the leafs using a striper brush
  5. Paint a black outline with some nail polish and a striper brush
  6. Add some orange and yellow dots using a small dotting tool
  7. Apply top coat
