Cath Kidston Roses...
All I seem to be doing recently is flowery nails - definitely embracing spring! Flowers on nails is not something I've really experimented with in the past as I thought they looked too intricate and fiddly, but I wanted to try something I'd not tried in the past.
I've had a picture saved in my 'inspiration' folder for ages, which was this manicure by Cazzy of SpecialGirl Nails. She did this quite a while ago, and I loved it! I also took inspiration from loads of flower/roses manicures I've seen on instagram.
I used my new purchase, Sugar Apple by Barry M for the base - three thin coats. I looove this shade, it's so me! I then used Pink Veneer by Models Own to paint on rough circles for the roses. I just used the brush from the bottle for this. I used the white Barry M Nail Art Pen to add dots, then once the pink of the roses were dryh, I used the pink pen to add the 'petal' details. All topped with Sally Hansen Insta Dri.
I didn't intend these to look so Cath-Kidston-esque but they really do! I love how fresh and spring-like they look - I hope they last a good couple of days! This first pic (below) is from my phone and captures the colours slightly more accurately than in the following pics (from my camera) x
