This week, I did potentially the best nail art I've ever done! I've been wanting to do vintage roses for a loooong time, I've seen them about the place loads and always eyed them up jealously, thinking that I would make a right pigs ear out of it if I tried them. But then on the weekend I said to myself, "Self, stop being a wimp and give it a go." And it turned out really well!
Enough waffling, let the copious picture spam commence....
Squeeeeee! I'm so pleased with them!
I was inspired by a Cath Kidson notebook I've got at home, which is the pattern below.
For the base I used Barry M Mint Green, which is the most gorgeous pastel green ever. I then swirled OPI Party In My Cabana into white nail polish (Sally Hansen White On, just to be really specific!) and used a tiny dotting tool to paint it on my nail. For the leaves I used a tiny paintbrush and Barry M Spring Green. Topped it all off with a top coat of Seche Vite, which made ALL the difference, they looked a bit messy until Seche performed it's usual smoothing magic.
Thanks for stopping by!
