Cherries

My Mum recently dug out some old photos. When sorting through them I noticed that I had some pretty cool clothes back then. Other than the dozens of pairs of dungarees there were some cute little swimming costumes I almost wish I had now! This cherry covered number inspired me to do some nails based on the design. 


I've done tons of nail art designs on a white base recently so I decided to mix it up slightly and use a cream/nude base instead. In hindsight I think white may have worked better.

I used Models Own - Cloud 9 as the base, and a variety of Barry M's for the detailing. To draw on the cherries I used a dotting tool and a small brush. 

Do you have any swimwear which might inspire some nail art?

Love,

  1. When I look back at old pictures of when I was really young, I'm always so jealous of the awesome clothes I wore and I wish they'd still fit me haha. This cherry design is super cute on your nails and on the bathing suit! :)
