Monkey See Monkey Do Monday today! Finally I've got around to taking part in this weekly challenge again, it's one of my favourites :) I've had what I wanted to do in mind for ages, it was one particular nail from a mani I saw on Instagram by @nailsbylins (picture below).
So I started with two coats of the pearlescent off-white and then used a large dotter to add a bright pink centre point to each nail. Next up were the dashes of the blooms; first in grey and then over again in black using a small striper brush. I worked out from the centre point in a fan typed fashion to achieve this, it looks more complicated than it is believe me lol! Finally I used a glitter topcoat to add a bit of dainty sparkle and some shine. I absolutely love this mani and forgot just how much I enjoy painting designs freehand, will be doing much more of this kind of mani again! What d'ya think lovelies??
