Florals and Stripes

Hello everyone. I hope you're all having a good week. I have been a busy bee this week.

Today I have some nails to show you which I was inspired to do whilst looking at clothes on the internet. I found quite a lot of inspiration so be prepared to see quite a few of these posts!

Read on after the jump for more details.

Above is the dress I was inspired by from ASOS. It's not necessarily something I would wear but I quite liked the contrast of the harsh lines and softer flowers and figured it would make a nice manicure.

I used a base of Sinful Colors - Snow Me White on all my nails.

For my index and middle fingers I used striping tape to create the lines and painted over with W7 - Black. I used W7 - Black with a detail brush for my little finger.

I freehanded all my flowers. On my thumb I used OPI - Innie Minnie Mighty Bow, Sally Hansen - Cinnasnap and for the lighter colour I mixed Innie Minnie Mighty Bow with white.

For my blue flowers I used two Unnamed Color Club blues and China Glaze - Up All Night.

I was pretty pleased with how these came out, like I said earlier I like the contrast between the flowers and the lines. I think it's fairly unique as well which I enjoyed :).

Let me know what you think in the comments.

Thanks for looking.
