Ugh Monday and back at work BUT behold possibly the best nail art I have ever done!
This nail art makes me insanely happy. It's bold, it's bright, it's cheerful. It's easy to do, it's happy, and I've already done 3 variations lol.
Today's prompt is dotting tools, which I use a LOT. I didn't want to do ANOTHER dotticure, and as I looked through my Pinterest, I remembered how much I love the big flowers that Alice at One Nail To Rule Them All does - so some inspiration is definitely owed to THIS photo.
I just want to give a shout out here to my base colour - Barry M Gelly Coconut. It's become my staple for nail art bases. Is it as good as OPI My Vampire Is Buff? Well, it's AS good, but cheaper, so I am really chuffed us UK girls now have a great and affordable version!
To the colours -
- red - OPI Fashion A Bow
- pink - NOPI Pink. Seriously
- orange - OPI Hot & Spicy
- magenta - Pahlish Petropolis
- purple - Different Dimension Pulsar
- green - Sally Hansen Grass Slipper
After I'd done this mani (and cursed the minor streaking from the matte top coat), I decided I didn't really like the index and pinkie fingers, but with hindsight, I really do. I also find the purple a little toooo dark ... but you live and you learn!
I just adore this mani. It's not often I'll stand up and say I'm proud of what I've done, but today, I am suuuuuuuper happy and proud :)
