Little Lobsters

As you know, my gorgeous niece Monika was born last week (did you see our baby nails?). Having superstitiously held back from making any purchases until she was here safely, I found myself in Baby Gap within a matter of hours!
There were so many cute little outfits but the vey cutest was this tiny lobster-print number. As soon as I saw it I knew it would end up as nail inspo - like most pretty patterns do for us! The mix of coral and pastels on white is just so lovely for the summer, and lobsters are a fairly unusual animal to see on clothing. I wasn't sure how well I'd be able to draw a lobster so gave it some practise during a particularly dull conference call. I came up with a rather simplified lobster design which I was confident I'd be able to recreate on my nails. Annoyingly I got their tails wrong, they should be fanned rather than pointy!
It turned out Barry M had just the colours I was looking for, so ended up using all their polishes for this mani. The base is Matt White and the others are (L-R) Strawberry Ice Cream, Bikini*, Cancun* and Pink Flamingo.
We love a good animal print design and I can't get over how lovely this colour scheme is! Who knew Baby Gap would be such a wealth of inspiration!!


  1. That outfit is adorable! The lobsters look great and the colours you've used work so well together! :)

    1. It's so cute isn't it! We are so jealous of all the cute baby clothes - we want adult versions! E&J.xx
