Pink Waves

Hi everyone! Today I have a nail art post for you finally! I'm sorry things have been a bit swatch centred recently, unfortunately that's all I've had time for recently and the schedules of collections just meant things worked out that way. I promise I'm going to have more nail art posts for you coming soon! 

The mani I have to show you today was a bit random. I found myself with some time to do my nails and some nail art and wasn't sure what I wanted to do (isn't that always the way...when you finally have time, you're indecisive!). I remembered a mani I saw by Ophélie/Tartofraises in blue which was really simple but pretty and decided to do my own version. 

I fancied doing it in shades of pink to change things up and make it my own so I started off with 2 coats of OPI Mod About You, which you probably all know is one of my absolute favourite pale pink polishes. I then used Pipe Dream Polish Take It Easy from the Mellowed Out Cremes collection to freehand some waves. I did the same with OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips and Colors By Llarowe Courage Brains Heart, this time using a brush instead of the brush from the polishes. 

I then used some white acrylic paint to freehand some thinner lines to tidy everything up somewhat and add some 'detail' and then finished with some dots using a dotting tool on the areas where I didn't draw a line to separate the different polishes. As always I finished with topcoat. 

I'm happy with how it turned out. It's funky and fun for Spring but was super simple! A good reminder that nail art doesn't have to be super complicated to look good and be fun to wear!
