Cath Kidston inspired rose nail art


another nail art post, yaaaay! This one is Cath Kidston inspired as per usual with pretty pastel colours and a floral design. I haven't done this design before so I didn't take step by step photos as I did them as I didn't know how they would turn out so sorry there's no tutorial but I'll definitely be one soon. I just used a dotting tool and a light pink Essie shade to create a large flower shape as the base. Then with some darker pinks and a tiny paintbrush create little swirls to make out like there are petals on the rose. In the center of each flower, using a dark berry red do a couple of smaller swirls to give more definition and to make it look like the petals are closer together in the middle. Using a small paintbrush again do the leaves by doing the light green then dark one.

I hope you like them, please let me know what you think!I'm off to see Mike Dignam today in Brighton with a couple of my friends which should be good, I hadn't heard of him before my friend asked me to go with her but I actually quite like it- he's got all his music on YouTube if you want to listen!
