Kate Spade Inspired Flamingoes


While I was in New York (you're gonna see a lot of inspiration from my trip so sorry in advance) I went on a search for one of my fave NY designers - Kate Spade. Finally slipping into one of her stores I noticed that she's gone for a tropical summer theme this year with tons of flamingoes. My friend and I commented on this as we both love a flamingo motif but often don't buy things as they tend to be overwhelmingly pink which isn't really our thing. Being me I thought if I'm not going to go full on and have flamingo accessories then I will have them on my nails. So here they are!


I used a trip of Rimmels for this look, all from the summer Rita Ora range: Peachella*, Sweet Retreat* and Neon Fest*. I have tried flamingos before which went horrifically. If I could get a smaller pic on here I would show you but I don't think anyone is ready for an XL version! Having gone through that I was fully prepared for this to be a shambles but it was actually a lot easier than anticipated. I may do a little tutorial for you all on Instagram to show that it wasn't too tough. 

Are you flamingo fans?

  1. Wow I love these so much! I've just bought some flamingo bedding from Primark recently and was looking for a way to make some nail art too.. I need to give this a try. Plus this is a great excuse to go back for Peachella - I only bought a couple of the Rita Oras to test them out but now I want them all!

    1. Oh gosh we may have to make a trip to Primark. Flamingo bedding is the dream! Peachella is beautiful but we may biased as we love a peach polish. Any excuse to buy more polish eh?! Look out for some swatches of the Rita Oras soon. E&J xx

  5. I am obsessed with Flamingos (for some odd reason!) lately! I just bought a beautiful, bright scarf with flamingos all over it. <3 Want to try your nail art next time I do my nails. Love them.

    1. It's so weird why people are fascinated by them (us included) but they are addictive. Let us see if you try our nail art, we're obsessed with seeing other people's versions of our designs. E&J xx
