Cath Kidston Inspired Mani

Inspired by my many floral Cath Kidston and Victoria & Albert items, I wanted to create a floral mani. I searched YouTube for different ways of creating the flowery look and came to the conclusion that I wanted it to be simple to create as some of them were quite intricate! I used peeling and brittleness and gel strength base coats because due to a bad bio gel removal a while ago, my nails appear to be flaking :( I chose pink as a base colour and used a darker pink, red and green for the flowers. Here are all the polishes I used:

First I used the pale primark pink as a background and painted 3 coats. I used Barry M’s Pink Flamingo to then put two large dots on each of my fingers. Then when that was dry, I used my Avon dotting tool to create ( ) bracket like shapes around the dots. When that was dry I used a skinny brush to draw leaf like shapes in green at the bottom of each flower.

I kept my marble nail from my last mani because I love it! I know it doesn’t fully match this floral theme, but I think it looks quirky! That is partially the reason that I chose all pinks and reds.

I really love it, it is so cute and if it wasn’t snowing here in the UK, I would say it was a perfect spring mani. It is brightening my snowy day! I would have liked to do a pale mint background too… Maybe next time!
