Nail art: Croton plant leafs

DSCN5721

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ Its leafs are beautiful, so I did my best to show that on my nails as well.
