A Load Of Waffle


Last week I saw my first cherry blossom of spring, the sun was out, it was perfect. Of course that was until 7pm rolled around and the heavens opened just as I stepped onto a netball court, typical!! Anyway, spring is officially on its way woohoo! To celebrate I reached for two of my favourite pastels and set to work.

The two polishes I have used here are Blueberry Muffin and Apple Pie, both part of the Models Own Fruit Pastel collection. The collection which strangely claims to be scented, but is defo not! I struggle to choose between the Fruit Pastel range and Barry M's super beautiful Ice Cream pastel collection. You'll be seeing both a lot on here over the coming months so feel free to get excited!

I have to admit that I painted the base before I had a clue what design to put on top. Usually this tactic ends badly for me and I regret it. Thankfully, this time I was pretty pleased with the outcome! I chose to add a waffle design on to the blue and green pastels using a Barry M nail art pen. I used a nail art pen instead of a striping brush as I wanted that slightly uneven, almost vintage, feel, rather than just a white grid! 

The design reminds me a lot of some of Boom Nails creations so I assume this idea was inspired by Emma somewhere in my brain! 

Unfortunately when I painted these I didn't have access to my usual light set up, so the photo leaves a little to be desired, and doesn't really do the nails justice. 

What nail art do you have planned for spring?

Love,
