Nail Art| Cath Kidston/Vintage Inspired Floral & Polkadots ♥



It feels like it's been so long since I last did any nail art, or anything with my nails?!

Some of my older followers will know just how much I love everything nails! I think (without sounding too much of a weirdo) I have almost 400 nail varnishes now, crazy I know. I just wish I had the time to use them all :(

My natural nails are in really bad condition lately too, they look terrible, but I recently used the Rio Pop Acrylics Nail Extenions (Review here). So now they are much stronger, smoother, longer and easier to work with.

 What better way to make the most of them than to do a pretty nail design? (similar to this one I found on Victoria's Vintage blog) so here we are...


As you can see, Barry M is one of my favourite brands for nail varnish. I used White, Shocking Pink, Blue Moon, Strawberry Ice Cream, Mint Green, before finishing off with a nice thick coat of Seche Vite! 

I really like how they turned out! What do you think?

  12. I love this design, it's beautiful! I wish I had a delicate hand to recreate it, it would probably just look like some random blobs on my nails!
