I have a bit of a plant-crush on Monstera Deliciosa and all his friends. These funny looking fellows are pretty on-trend right now, and you may have seen them adding a bit of greenery in the background of an aspirational Instagram photo here and there.
I read that monstera means ‘monstrous’ or abnormal, in reference to the plant’s strange appearing, which seems waaaaay harsh if you ask me. I myself am the proud owner of a monstera obliqua, who is nice and compact, and obligingly poses alongside my weavings during photoshoots. Isn’t he the cutest?! #proudplantparent.
I decided to pay tribute to these gorgeous green guys in the best way I know how – with nail art!
These bold, distinctive shapes were particularly fun to paint. And if you’re crushing on this colour combo, I can highly recommend taking a look at the Plants on Pink Instagram account. As you might have guessed, it is an account that posts picture after picture of gorgeous green plants on backgrounds in every shade of pink. It might sounds simple, but it is truly a thing of beauty.
Do you have a plant crush at the moment? Do tell!
