Pick 'N' Mix Challenge: Patchwork & Bright/Happy

Wednesday 27 May 2015

Hello, hello! 
This weeks pick 'n' mix theme had me stumped for a while, I wanted to combine the two as usual and it was difficult to decide on a design because there were just too many ideas flying around in my head. Finally I had a brainwave - they're infrequent but generally good hahaha... Sticky fabric! Fabric being perfect for a patchwork theme and this particular sticky fabric makes me feel very bright and happy, I LOVE a floral. Generally I use this stuff in my planner/journal but I'm all for bringing my craft stuff into my nail world!


I first tried this over a blue polish but the fabric just didn't pop against it so I went with this, my new favourite pink from Barry M. The process goes like this: Paint two coats of the pink, stick on squares of fabric and trim to fit, edge patches with white nail art pen and you're done! I tested how it would react to topcoat but the fabric just went see-through so this is definitely only a fun day or two look.

I just adore this mani, I'm not quite sure what it is but it's just singing to my heart and it was so perfect for todays summer sun too :) If you're wondering where I got my hands on the sticky fabric, I picked it up in 'The Works'
