A line of purple roses.

Hey hi hello!
I'm not doing stripes this time! Surprised? Me too! Instead I went for something equally as simple, little rose flowers which are really simple but very effective. I did make a few mistakes with this design but I still rather like them. Also I was too lazy to redo them.

I knew I wanted to do flowers but I was unsure of how to do them, if that makes any sense. I ended up outlining the nails and then drawing flowers at the bottom. They looked so much better in persoin that they do on photographs I'm afraid!
It was my first time doing an outline and I now know that I really need some new nail art brushes because mine are getting old and they're looking a little... odd. I really love the colour combonation here, with Revlon Provence and Impulse as a base and colour of the outline then Essie Bahama mama as the flowers. For the inside of the flowers I mixed bahama mama with white to lighten it up.
I'm really getting ready for spring now with more girly nails. We had sun yesterday and the day before that and it was like 10 degrees. Yes! 10! Compared to the snow and freezing minus weather we've had over the last few months it was about time.
Are you guys excited for Spring/ Summer? What trends do you think are going to be big?
