Day 29 – Inspired by a Blogger

16 Aug

I was spoiled for choice with this one – there are so many good blogs out there that I follow and inspire me on a daily basis.  I decided to go with a Robin Moses inspired design though as she’s been doing this for a long time and some of her nail designs are absolutely amazing, I hope one day I’ll be able to recreate some of the designs that she’s done, they’re so detailed and incredible!

I particularly like the flower designs that Robin does, they’re so beautiful, so inspired by the many videos on YouTube I created a black and gold flower design.

It’s been so long since I did any real nail art, and by that I mean painting freehand with my brushes so these are a little shaky and there’s no way you’re seeing my non dominant hand! I used acrylic paint for the flowers as I find it easier to work with and a much better consistency than nail polish. The gold is Nails Inc Lanesborough Place.

I’m really happy with these though and can’t wait to try out more designs now I’m feeling a little braver!
