When it comes to patterns, I usually reach for the stamps. I admit, I do like my patterns to look precise, but I managed to find a pattern I liked, that didn't really rely on precision to make it work.
I found the background image on google images, and I instantly loved it. I changed the base colour so I could make use of my new Rimmel polish - Mary Mary Quite Contrary.
For the freehand leaves, I used :
Barry M - Guava & Key Lime
Rimmel - Aqua Cool, Navy Seal & Sage Green
And acrylic black for the outlines.
I used Rimmel Matte top coat after applying HK Girl - Glisten & Glow.
It was just begging to be mattefied.
I am quite pleased with how they turned out, but I need to keep reminding myself that it's "inspired by", and not "copied from".
Please remember to check out what the other girls are doing for the challenge.
