Good afternoon everyone!
I'm very excited to be sharing my first ever mani swap with you lovelies today!... And I'm swapping with the fabulous Sarah from My Mint Nails! We each chose a mani of each other's to recreate and are both posting today; Sarah chose to do my Big Leopard nail art and I chose her Cath Kidston Roses design...
You can see Sarah's original roses design HERE.
I had chopped and changed my mind so many times over which of Sarah's amazing mani's to recreate, she has so many bold and original ideas to choose from, just my style! In the end the design I chose turned out to be just perfect for today!... It's a gorgeous spring/summer look and it's a gorgous spring/summer day here in London, I love it when a plan comes together! This was nice and simple to do and was my first attempt at freehand roses...
I started with three coats of the sky blue followed by using a small dotting tool to add the white spots. I then used a the rubber end of a pencil to add large dots of the light pink polish. Once dry I used a darker pink nail art pen to add a few curved dashes to build up the rose effect and finished with topcoat.
This mani is just so pretty. Thanks for the inspiration Sarah!
