NOTD: Simple Mint Vintage Roses

You'd have to be blind not to see the mint take over this Spring/Summer, luckily I'd a trusty bottle of Barry M's Mint Green from last year to throw something together quickly for work and meetings today. 

Of course a thin nail art brush will give you much more defined roses but a) I was too tired to go up the stairs last night and b) I kinda like the abstract look. 

Simply dot a light colour 4 to five times on the nail bed and surround it with a darker complementary shade. Exactly the same technique as with leopard print, funnily enough. A couple of green leaves and voila! you're sporting abstract roses. 

What's on your nails today then?

I love this! Very cath kidston esque! I just got the models own neon polishes so about to lash those on! :)

Wow, these look amazing! Just got my first set of nail dotting tools so I'll be experimenting with those at the weekend, should be interesting! I'm sure they won't turn out like yours!
