Little Bit of Lace

I recently started a new job, and it didn't take long for the girls on the team to discover my love for nail art! Within two weeks I found myself doing a quick floral mani for one of my new colleagues. I've never had, or painted on, acrylic nails before so this was something new for me. 

My brief for these nails was 'dark and floral', and I instantly thought of a lace strip which I've been wanting to try for a while. The blue base is Models Own Betty Blue, my absolute fave dark, but not quite navy, blue. It's a beautiful rich colour and a perfect match for the pink roses. I painted the white strip onto the nail once the blue was dry, and added the lacy frills with a Barry M nail art pen. You can see how to do these sweet little roses on an earlier blog post here

I love how pretty and girly this design is, it would work perfectly in a Cath Kidston/retro mani.
