Spring NOTD

Here in the UK it’s now officially Spring Time! And that plus the fact the weather has been absolutely gorgeous where I live I was in the mood to so something cute and simple with my nails and this is what I came up with!
It's an (extremely simplified) Cath Kidston inspired floral nail art design that was actually really easy to do and I love it because it reminds me of all the flowers we’ll be seeing soon as well as the warmer weather just around the corner!(you can click the picture you see the design in more detail!)
I used Barry M’s Matte White, Spring Green, Fuchsia and a mix of
Bright red
and Raspberry :)

If you want to do something similar just apply a white base, let it dry then take a cocktail stick, swirl it in the polish and then draw the design on!

If you do this don’t forget a good top coat!
(This isn’t difficult to do, but it can be a little time consuming! so make sure you’re watching TV or doing something on the computer whilst you do this otherwise you’ll just get bored waiting for things to dry!)

I hope you’ve enjoyed – Are any of you excited about the start of spring??

Wow that's a gorgeous design! Well done for doing that, think I'm a bit too impatient and heavy handed to do this on my nails unfortunately! x
