Blue Flowers

I thought I would try my hand at some free hand nail art.
As you may or may not know, it has been a goal of mine to get batter at my free hand work. So I put away the striping tape, sticky tape, stencils, stamps and picked up a paint brush.

I did try and attempt to do roses but I think if they weren't blue they would have come out much better. I still like it either way.

Purple: BC&Co - Shade 6
Dark Blue: Sinful Colors - Endless Blue
Light Blue: Essence - Absolutely blue

To do these 'so called' roses I used Follow That Way's tutorial. She did a MUCH better job than I did. but you what they say... practise makes perfect! 

What do you think?? (And be honest...)

Purple Dots!

I have never been a huge fan of the colour purple, but yet I have a gazillion bottles of different shades.
I thought I would have a play and see if I could come up with a cool psychedelic pattern.

Base Colour: Rimmel - Marshmallow Heaven 
Dark Purple: BYS - Reign Supreme 
Magenta: BC&Co. - Shade 6
Light Purple: Savvy - Grapetini

I started with a base colour and used a different size dotting tools to dot random colours.

I picked a starting point on each nail and made that the 'base', the dots in that area were more condensed and then moved out from that point. The further a way the dots got, the less and far between I placed them. Sort of giving an ombre effect.

What do you think??
