Challenge two: Chelsea Flower Show
Challenge three: Summer dots
I got my inspiration from a picture that was on google images from another site but it just vanished when I checked this post again :( I can't find the picture now so I think they took it down.
Here we have my chelsea flower show manicure. I'm not going to lie. I hate it! I hate wearing it so much that I have an "accent hand" with only the base colours on it an avoided doing this again.
I decided on doing an accent mainly because I thought the design was a bit "too" much to wear as a full mani. So glad I did because I love the combination of the green and orange on its own. I know they aren't normally two colours that you would put together but they are so bright and work so well.
Anyway back to this "thing". I have stargazer 114 as my basecoat and 2 coats of Catrice Run forest run with and accent of Nails inc Atomic (free with Fabulous magazine around June of last year I think!) which was also 2 coats. On each nail I have alternating dots of the same colour but going in a pattern of light-dark-light-dark etc.
I used Purple,pink,green, peach, red and yellow but the yellow isn't all that visible. I created the dots using my dotting tools from ebay. I really have to work on them! it's been so long since I have dotted properly.
