Copy Cat @allnailseverything

When I saw this manicure on instagram I just HAD to recreate it! :)

Nadia (@allnailseverything) created this look using Butter London Trout Pout, but I decided I wanted to break out CG Flip Flop Fantasy for mine since spring has sprung!

I started with a base of OPI Alpine Snow on all of my nails. Then using a make-up sponge I created a gradient on my thumb and middle finger using the new and old FFF formulas (I'm sad they changed the formula but are still calling it FFF)

Using a dotting tool I added polka dots on my index and pinky... and finally using a nail art brush I painted on the flowers using a mixture of FFF and Alpine Snow to get a lighter pink, and Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Grass Slipper (also mixed with a little of Alpine Snow) for the leaves, all outlined using OPI Black Onyx. 

The old FFF formula is the pinker of the two (on my tips), and the new formula has a more peachy tone at the base of my nail.

I still find FFF tricky to photograph because of it's neon qualities... it all depends on the lighting.

I hope you like this look :) It's so perfect for spring! Don't forget to head over to @allnailseverything to see more of Nadia's work, she's so talented!
