Purple/Green Paisley Print Nails

Hello there fine people, coming right at'cha with more nail art. It's been pretty nail art-y recently, and that's the way it should be. Nail art is my fave. I think taking that break from writing and posting was nice just to try and get myself in order (order is a subjective word).
I think I'll be having some good stuff up soon, it was my birthday earlier this month so I do have some polish to display and I enjoy writing those posts so hopefully I can have some good quality content up before the month is over (and it will be considering how fast time has been passing, it's not just me right??). And woohoo my exams are over so hopefully I'll up and posting a bunch soon (if I don't get distracted, I can be a very distracted person sometimes).

I feel like it's been a while since I've done paisley print nails and even once in a while I have urges to correct the absence of certain nail art designs. I thought the clash of pink, green and purple would be cool. I like the design as a whole but the colours don't blend very well together. I reckon I could've got the gradient effect painted much better. But once you slam that glitter on top everything is solved. 

This was a toothpick affair and I tried to use the 3 colours in different orders with each paisley pattern. It was hard to do thin lines inside the middle sections. Under the paisley print I also jellied a sandwich and that actually looked really nice by itself. I think the segments of paisley are actually pretty messy but something I just dealt with haha. Also mattified cause that's what the cool kids are doing. Haha I don't know that but I like matte manicures a lot.
