Cath Kidston Inspired

This week I decided to create something super girly and fun on my nails! I have been seeing this cute pattern by Cath Kidston around EVERYWHERE and I just had to have it on my nails. There was something about the colors, vintage vibe and roses (aka my weakness) that drew me closer and closer to this design.

To be completely honest, I'm thrilled with how these came out! They were very time consuming but I am in love with the outcome. I think the mint green (Jealous, Much? By Orly) pairs perfectly with the multi-toned roses. The roses are a bit messy and look more like blobs when you get extremely close, but from afar they look pretty nice! 

Haha see what I mean? When you get close, you realize that the flowers look like nothing more than a few flicks of red and pink. But, I'm still in love. And apparently so was my 23 year old sister because she insisted that I do them for her as well! 

For her version, since she loves blue, I decided to use Essie's Bikini So Teeny as a base instead. Little did I know that the pattern looks amazing on top of that color as well! I honestly think that the design would look great over almost any color. From pale pinks, dusty blues, grassy greens, to pastel yellows. I'm so excited to be rocking these for a few days. I hope I did Cath Kidston justice!
