Pruple Crumpet Fairy Spring challenge Day 3 - Small Flowers

Hello!

Hi! So today is day three of the challenge. There wasn't a challenge on Thursday. It's nice to have a break :) I am SO excited to show you these because I am SO happy with them! This is Models Own - Beth's Blue which is THE most beautiful forget-me-not blue. I am totally in love with it.









Sorry about the kazillions of pictures. I really love this manicure! I did the stripes using sticky labels cut into thin strips and the flowers with a dotting tool.

The black I used is a-england - Bridal Veil which is no ordinary black... OH NO! It's a beautiful black holo! I went over the blue with a coat of ELF - Twinkle which is my favourite glitter for that subtle tiny glitter effect. If you look at the close up shots, I managed to get a piece almost perfectly in the centre of a tiny flower. Ahhhww. :)

Please check out my fellow challenge-taking bloggers for their take on tiny flowers:

    1. !!! Do I have word verification!? I genuinely though I didn't. I hate capcha too, they're SO annoying and the new ones are impossible to see. I will remove it as soon as I figure out how :D

  7. Oh wow, this is one stunning manicure! I LOVE it! Beth's Blue is a shade I really wanted last year but for some reason never bought. Maybe I'll add it to my collection soon. I love your nail art and the glitter too. It's all fabulous!

    1. It's a lovely lovely blue but I think I have a lot of other blues really similar. I'll do a comparison if you'd be interested?
