NOTD - Beauty UK Smoky Lilac + floral nail art

Sorrysorrysorry! I know I promised I'd post more this week, but I'd totally forgotten that my Mum was coming to stay, so I had to get the house ship shape, and yesterday was my baby's first birthday! We had a barbeque and little party planned for today, and of course it's monsoon weather. So instead of making hand-made burgers I thought I'd show you this mani, although I wore it last weekend.

This is Beauty UK Smoky Lilac, a dusty purple that is so delicate and gorgeous, and went so well with the floral accent nails. I used three coats of Smoky Lilac on all nails apart from ring and thumb, which I used 3 coats of Collection 2000 French White. I did the flowers by swirling OPI Parlez Vous OPI? with some more white and using a dotting tool, then added the leaves with 2True Fast Dry shade 4.

It really was a soft and pretty manicure :)

I have lots and lots of things to play with and show you over the next few days! I won two giveaways so have pretty polishes and some fimo canes to play with, and I treated myself to the old set of Bundle Monster stamping plates. Can't wait!

I'm also just 7 followers from 100, and have started collecting things for a leetle giveaway! How exciting!

    I'm hating the rain atm too. Horrible photo weather.

  4. Thank you all! Bloody horrible weather, but at least the tomatoes in the garden like it! Would like a bit of sun to ripen them all up though!x
