It's a new year so it's time for a new nail design! I feel like I've lacked a heck of a lot of inspiration lately. But, after Christmas I have some new paints and a fabulous Models Own white detail pen! My room is Cath Kidston themed so I have been living in my inspiration recently and it hit me today whilst my nails were looking awful and chipped... A CATH KIDSTON THEME! Floating around the blogasphere has been a lot of Cath Kidston designs but I thought I'd put my own spin on things and go for girly, flowery pastels. What do you think?
Firstly I gave myself a re-file and buff as I have neglected them slightly over the Christmas period. They feel so much better now and a base coat made them look all fresh! My next step was to chose the designs for each finger. I only started painting my block pastel blue and pastel pink on three fingers as I wasn't sure what to do with the other too just yet, haha. I started with my spots and lines on my middle and index finger then got cracking with my feature nail.
After this, I added more white spots around the design and on the block colour to give it a more Cath Kidston-y feel to it!
For the next step I had to make my bloomin' mind up about which colour to paint the other two nails... I chose pink - shock horror. Not only that it's preeeetty but it evened out the design symmetrically. For the thumb nail I chose to do a similar design to the feature nail to give the design a little more 'wow-factor' - if you can call it that... haha. I used three flowers this time on a pink background. I love how it came out! I also decided to do white line on my pinky nail which rounds of the design nicely!
What do you think of this one lovelies? It's probably one of my favorites just because it's so pretty and girly! Have a go and let me know how you get one. Go ahead and develop your own Cath Kidston design, send me a link!! Good luck and just keep calm and keep a steady hand! Just be creative!
