31DC2015 Day 7 Pink and Aqua with Glam Polish

Hi Goddesses

Last year, when I came back from my break, I wa shocked to find how dull and mundane my nail art had become.  Once I started emptying the vault in about August, I really noticed a difference between stuff I'd done pre-break, and the stuff I was doing after.

One of the reasons I wanted to write and do this challenge, was to bring some kick ass nail art back to the blog, and I am delighted that I am so proud of so many of the manis I have done - including this one.

Pink and aqua always look dreamy together, and I decided a skittle was in order.  The index and little fingers just have some dry brushing on them.

Polishes used - 

- Barry M Coconut Gelly
- Glam Polish Pink Ladies
- Too Fancy Lacquer Lake Como
- dark green acrylic paint

Usually I do my roses my creating a blob, and using another colour to add in concentric quarter circles.   I've seen a lot of people taking a more blended approach instead, so this time, I pastelled my polishes with a bit of Coconut, and added some swirly brush strokes in variation of the original colour.

This is one of those times when gloss and photography help!  In real life, I couldn't see my painting too well, but under the camera, the detail seems to have sprung to life.

Overall, I'm super happy with how these turned out.
