Hattie Stewart Gives Me Heart Eyes

Every day now and then I get completely lost on Instagram clicking through to accounts that might interest me. Hours pass by and before I know it I'm getting a message from Jo like 'Did you just like an account called grandpaglass?!?!?' Yes Jo, I did. It's just hard because I will see some little thing that will inspire a design and I follow in the hope that more nailspo will come. We always credit when we've been inspired by something and it's just polite to follow, no? Anyway, that's how I found the inspo for today's design. 

During my last Instagram marathon I came across the account of illustrator Hattie Stewart and fell in love *heart eyes* (is that a thing? it should be). I'm sure I have seen her designs before but didn't really register who the illustrator was. Her account is so fun, I was mesmerized. I found so much inspiration for nail art on there but thought I would start quite subdued with this pink and monochrome look. 
In hindsight I wish I had gone for a brighter pink than Barry M's Bright Pink. It is bright but it is also quite deep and doesn't photograph particularly vibrant. However, the design still looks pretty cute. 

Watch this space for more Hattie Stewart inspired nails. And please let me know if there are any other illustrators or Insta accounts I should be following.
