Roses and a Gradient

Painted Fingertips | Gradient with freehand roses inspired by Lucy's Stash

Hi everyone!

Today I have another look inspired by Lucy’s Stash to share with you. She is one of my favourite bloggers, so yes, I find inspiration from her a lot! This time it was a lovely gradient topped with freehand roses that I decided to recreate – with a change or two. Painted Fingertips | Gradient with freehand roses inspired by Lucy's StashI started off with a gradient on all my nails using Born Pretty Store Holo Polish in #9 and #11. The gradient came out quite subtle but you can see it on my middle two fingers and it looked amazing in the sun!

I wanted the leaves to look a little more leaf-like so I decided to give them a wash of light green paint. I liked the look so much that I decided to add pink to the roses too.

I really liked the way the rose came out on my thumb nail. Painted Fingertips | Gradient with freehand roses inspired by Lucy's StashWhat do you think?
