As girly as it gets

I have been admiring the little freehand rose nail art that many bloggers have been trying lately... and finally decided to give it a go myself.

I used both Marta's (Chit Chat Nails) and Sammy's (The Nailasaurus) manicures for inspiration...

Quoting Sammy, "Every now and then, one of those special manis comes along. The ones you absolutely love and never want to take off" - this was definitely one of those! I kept this one on for 2 days and when the pin stripe nails started to peel I just painted them pink :) 

I started with a coat of China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint on all nails but my pinky. The Pinky is Etude Pink. For the flowers I blobbed on Etude Pink and then freehanded the rest with Finger Paints White Expressionism, Jordana Pink Romance and American Apparel Hunter.

And for a treat, here's my right hand.. Took a little bit more time but my left hand did a pretty decent job of it :P

Stay tuned, my cousin Phoebe is making another appearance here tomorrow :)
