Purple Crumpet Fairy Spring Challenge Day 13 - Tulips!

Hi! So today is day 13 (maybe? I lost count) of the Spring Challenge. Today (or yesterday but we won't talk about that... :D) is Tulips! I really really liked this mani but my photos just don't do it justice, which is a bummer. I particularly like the coraly-red colour which is Barry M - Pink Flamingo with Pop Rocks - Scalper layered over the top. Pop Rocks Scalper is a super sexy holo glitter that's kind of like a smaller version of the glitter in China Glaze - Techno, in a lovely, squidgy red tinted jelly base. YUM! It turned Pink Flamingo into a gorgeous, luminous coral red colour that makes me look super tanned (obviously I still look pasty white - but humour me.)

For the accent nails I used Chick Nails - All A Twitter and Chick Nails - Gavie Green for the tulip stems, and the same coraly red colour for the tulips themselves.

I'm sorry these are such crappy pictures. It's such a grim day, we've got no light and I'm a bit bummed that the pictures don't do my nails justice. Never mine. Be sure to check out all these other lovely bloggers taking part in the challenge. Their tulips are incredible!

What do you think of these - have you ever tried pop rocks before? 

Thanks for looking!
