Hi everyone! Have you ever seen a manicure on a blog or social media and just thought 'wow! I have to do my own version of that'? Well today's post is exactly that. I recently came across this manicure by Lou 'Urban Nail Art' (@urbannailart) on Instagram and loved the feel of it. So I created my own version. Here it is!
I used slightly different colours for mine, leaning more towards purple and pink as you know these are my favourites. I started out with 2 coats of OPI Did You 'Ear About Van Gogh? which is a beige creme. I forget how much I love this polish sometimes, but its the perfect beige that doesn't give me lobster hands and the formula is great.
I then stamped a design from the Moyou Pro XL 06 plate using Essie Good as Gold, a gold metallic. I then coloured the flowers in using OPI My Very First Knockwurst and a detail brush and restamped the image using Girly Bits Acornucopia. The image I chose isn't quite as good for this effect as the original by Urban Nail Art but I do like how it turned out. I then sponged a little bit of Acornucopia on some of the edges of my nails to add to the 'vintage' feel. I topped with topcoat as always!
Thank you Lou Urban Nail Art for the inspiration! Your manicure is gorgeous and I had fun doing my own version!
