Sideways Leopard Print Gradient

Hello!! Hope you're doing great. Now it's been a while since a leopard was here (which I think is a good thing, more of other nail art ya'know) but sometimes when I don't know what to do, this is where I turn.

So yeah, neon yellow base with some leopard spots that change colour as it goes across the nails. I do quite like that though. I added some heart shaped spots for bant, not extremely crazy though.

After the base, I got the brushes of the polishes and did the spots and for the outlines I got the polishes and the toothpicks and lined. Not very crazy or difficult.

Base: American Apparel - Neon Yellow with OPI - Lights Of Emerald City
Spot then outline
Pink: Barry M - Dragon Fruit and The Face Shop - PK105 (I think, it's not like me to forget!!)
Orange: Rimmel - It's a Scorcher! and OPI - Jinx
Green: China Glaze - Re-Fresh Mint with Glam Polish - Mars Attacks! and Barry M - Kiwi
Teal: Barry M - Guava and OPI - Sea You In Hollywood
Blue: Essie - Bikini So Teeny and H&M - Blue My Mind
Purple: Barry M - Berry Ice Cream and OPI - My Current Crush

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a nice day!! :)

Green Nails: Barry M - Kiwi

Hey there guys!! I have an awesome polish to show you today. I knew from the moment I saw the press samples that this polish would have to be mine. I love green polish!! And this shade is so great. And I love the Gelly range. Just a note on my swatches is that they are very dark today, I tried to colour correct cause my camera seriously hates green (which is such a shame :() so I tried my best, but I still think the polish is still a hint darker and blue toned in real life. Anyway it's beautiful!!

Apologies for the bubbles
Kiwi is a shade of green that is very unique to my stash, it's darker than a medium green but can't be categorised as a dark green. I can't wait to use this more for nail art (and I've used it a bunch for nail art already) and just enjoying that gorgeous shade of green.

Part of this year's Summer Gelly line, the colours were nice, too neutral personally but Kiwi was my standout. Every single Gelly I've owned has ended up in my favourites (and don't expect that to change any time soon), and I know if I bought a colour that I didn't love that wouldn't be the case, but the thing is of all the ones I've bought from the massive selection I've loved so much. And the chances of that in any line is rare, so basically the Gellies are special.

I know the picture is red, but I tried so hard to get it close to colour accurate :(
The formula was brill, 2 coats and I bet short nails could do 1 coat. It's so opaque, and yeah about the bubbles, it's probably my fault. Probably my coats were too thick and I didn't let them dry properly due to my excitement about the polish. But yes flawless formula, wouldn't expect anything less of the Barry M Gellies.

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day!! :)

Coral Nails: Claire's - Hundreds & Thousands

Hey guys, what up? No one says what up but I felt it was appropriate because this polish is so amazing (which are two things that are just not linked but such is my mind).
Because I am so cool I had a massive debate with myself of whether to do a "______ Nails" post or a "Gimme Glitter". You can tell what I picked but just to be definitive with myself, Gimme Glitter posts are for predominantly glitter polishes and otherwise for polishes with glitter but the colour of the polish stands out then I don't do a Gimme Glitter. Or it can go either way depending on my mood, we aren't so official here at PlumeriaPainted. ANYWAY to the amazing amazing amazing polish that I'm in love with that caused such a debate with myself.

By the way this polish learns more pink than orange than my pictures suggest, it's a reason I love it
It's the most gorgeous shade of NEON coral. There's red, blue and yellow/gold glitter (i.e. my favourite colour combo ever). There's added huge white glitter and just white glitter. CAN YOU TELL WHY I LOVE THIS!! It's just combined my favourite polish things into one polish. It's just so perf.
Ok so Hundreds & Thousands (cutest name, good job Claire's) is a neon coral creme with medium blue and sheer white hexes, small red and yellow glitter and big white hexes (love love love). It's way brighter on the nail than in the bottle. The glitter is also not hidden but shows up perfectly in the base.

Claire's is just so beast right now. They've upped their game so much and I'm so impressed. Out of the polishes I've got this is by far my favourite and I really really liked the others. Course I have to get more :P They're jumping on all the trends and doing it right most of the time. So many kudos to them (I don't even know what kudos is).

I used 3 coats by itself and it built really well and the glitter spread great too. The finish was quite lumpy but topcoat sorts that easily (specially a good topcoat, I didn't use a good topcoat and I had to use quite a few coats). It seems like the kind of polish that would be thick but it's not, and it's not streaky and yeah I love it.

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day!! :)

PowerPuff Girls Nail Art

Hello there!! Thank you for clicking here on PlumeriaPainted, I appreciate it. It's a nail art day!! PowerPuff girls, don't know about you but I was obsessed with the PowerPuff girls when I was really young. It was so fun, and they were saving the world and the villain was all crazy. It was a good show. Oo and it was so colourful!! So yeah did some nail art inspired by them.

I'm really really happy with how this turned out, I think the PowerPuff girls are so cute!! They're aren't perfect but I think it works and has "personal flair". So there's Bubbles, Blossom and Buttercup. Bubbles was my favourite cause she's so happy and cute!! For the thumb and pinky I was trying to do the heart that they appear in, in the theme tune, it works better when I do a different hand position. On another note I loved the PowerPuff Girls theme tune, again so fun.

So I started with a white base for all of them and did my black outline. Then I got my toothpicks and filled in. Proportion is always my nail art enemy so I was battling that and I think I mostly won (except kind of for Buttercup). For the stripes (I'm trying to think of the word for that stripy heart but it's not coming to me) I just got the brushes of the polishes and went wild.

Base: Claire's - Hundreds & Thousands
Black: Lovely Me:Ex - Black
Yellow: Rimmel - Sunshine
Peach: w7 - Linen
White: Barry M - Matt White and Lovely Me:Ex - White (as a base)
Blue: Revlon - Blue Lagoon
Red: OPI - Dutch Tulips
Orangey Red: Barry M - Carousel
Orange: Essie - Fear Or Desire
Green: Illamasqua - Nomad
Orangey Pink: OPI - Charged Up Cherry
Light Pink: Barry M - Dragon Fruit
Fuchsia: Barry M - Fuchsia
Pink: Orly - Basket Case

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day!! :)

Yellow Nails: American Apparel - Neon Yellow

Hey ma chums. Hope you'er doing well, I am v chilled right now. I'm off school right now cause after exams, I'm home and free!! I'm not a yellow polish kind of gal but neons. OH MAN you know me and neons!! We rave, and hug and get overly excited. I've been looking for a neon yellow and I've found it, in American Apparel Neon Yellow (original name).

AIN'T IT BRIGHT. I <3 it. Seriously in some lighting, it was just popping and I was loving it. As you can guess Neon Yellow is your standard green toned highlighter yellow nail polish. It's beast!!

This is my first American Apparel nail polish and I really like it and the brand seems pretty cool. For one the bottle is sweet, it's huge and all cuboid-like and that's cool. Also from swatches I've seen the colours are pretty and the neons are pow!! Which I like. So if I have the chance for American Apparel I'll take it. Though sometimes the colours don't seem all that amazing, but when you have good neons I overlook that automatically. Ma eyes go to the neons.

Ok I'm gonna write about the formula and some people are gonna be O.O but remember this is a neon and I just want to say that I'm pretty confident that this would be 2 coats over a white base. I did not use a white base cause I was testing, so I used 7 coats. Which I know sounds ridiculous!! But it's a neon, and neons are sheer. But as you can tell it's not thick at all, as the coats were thin and it did build well (remember this is a neon). I totally totally forgive this cause it's a neon and yeah next time I'm putting it over white which will be WAY less coats and BRIGHT.
It dried matte like neons tend to do and was mega smooth, so smooth, it was nice. I put topcot on for the pictures and it was still mega smooth.

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day!! :)

Gimme Glitter: Barry M - Superdrug 50th Birthday

Hello fine folks!! Hope you're having a nice day which will be made better by glitter (maybe, that's really debatable)!! This polish came out a while ago and I knew I needed it in my life. Glitter, limited edition, Barry M, it had to be in my possession. But as you know I had exams preventing me from going down to da shops. So when I did go down to da shops, it was no longer there and I was told the offer was done and there were none left.
Now me being rational was like "Whatevs, I can live without". But I don't go down without a fight!! And yeah I asked about it again and while I was told the limited edition was gone; there are drawers underneath the stands (I did not know this) and bam the 50th Birthday polish was there. In fact 7 were there. Now from this overly dramatic retelling of this story, I think the moral is to always ask about polish, cause it could still be there :P

It's simply fabulous.  I love it. I'm glad I did not give up. Superdrug 50th Birthday (this is the name I'm going with) is a shimmery fuchsia pink base with medium and small pink, purple and white hexes (the pink glitter does not come in the small variation). I love the white glitter!! It's just mad girly which is perf for me.

I've said before that Superdrug gets the better limited editions and this is a sentiment I still very much agree with especially with this polish (however this summer I think Boots got the better limited editions, I'll show one soon and yeah I have thoughts about it ;)). This one really was special, I did not know Superdrug was 50!! I don't know it seemed younger :P Anyway it's great that Barry M has a special polish made cause it's boss.

You could probably get this opqaue by itself, but it would take more coats. So I layered this over Barry M - Fuchsia. The 2 coats I used over was very good, the glitter was plentiful and there wasn't very much pushing and moving.

Thank you for reading, and I hope you have a great day!! :)

Dolce & Gabbana Blossom Nail Art

Hello there guys, good to see you!! Nail art!! Whey!! So I saw this super gorgeous red with blossoms Dolce and Gabbana bag in a magazine (and guess why I was reading this magazine, cause there was free nail polish with it and coincidentally this polish was perfect for this design) and I just had to do the design on my nails. I used a wonderful Robin Moses tutorial for this, her neutral cherry blossoms which was so perfect. I also love how causal her tutorials are too. Man I just love the look.

I just feel the more "brushstroky" look is what I really like. I really like the artsy look, while most of the time I fail that criteria, I think I got it this time!! :D
The tan flowers are also just lovely (thank you Robin Moses). I especially love it with the red base (and let's not even start talking about that red base cause I could go on for a while and I will once I write my post on it ;)); and there are also peaks of glittery dark red which I loved and wished I hadn't covered up so much. The pink flowers kind of just happened with a bunch of blending; it didn't turn out the way I wanted but I ended up liking it. I just loved looking at this design cause I think it's cutesy and elegant :P and flowers, I think floral designs are fantastic.

Me being me I had to slam on some glitter before the design and I just got the brush of the polish and went wild, as you do. I then got my toothpick with the dark brown and tried to go wild, but sometimes I can't let go of control and this is how the artsy doesn't happen. But the branches were covered with some leaves then some flowers which once again I did the toothpick thing. 
The pink flowers were unplanned, but I got a tiny amount of polish on the toothpick and lightly dragged it on the desired part of the flower. I really tried to explain that all fancy-like but I failed haha. So yeah I used toothpicks like usual and went about my nail art :)

Base: Barry M - Carousel
Glitter polishes: Barry M - Princess, Essie - Leading Lady (which was great in this design) and Barry M - Superdrug Xmas LE 2012 B
Dark Brown: w7 - Brownie
Green: Barry M - Kiwi
Tan: Nails Inc - Sao Paulo Streets (I'll have a post about this one soon too, like why did I pick the neutral polish?)
White: Barry M - Matt White
Pinks: Barry M - Superdrug Summer LE 2013 A, The Face Shop - PK105, OPI - Charged Up Cherry, Barry M - Boots Xmas LE 2012 B and Barry M - Strawberry Ice Cream
Brown: Paris Collection - Mauve Melody with w7 - Golden Sands and occasionally Topshop - Naked underneath the brown until I changed my mind

Thank you very much for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day!! :)

Fun Triangle Nails

Hey there, I hope you're having a good day. I have nail art today (woop woop) and I really really like this one. I've always loved a good geometric design and I think I have managed to achieve this time. The uniformity and regularity of geometric designs look so cool and balanced. Hey I always like a good bit of balance.

How colourful!! How fun!! This is the feeling. I'm happy with how neat I managed the triangles, it was time consuming. But worth it!! I really like those colours together too. Of course I needed some variation so I did some glitter placing, I should've just done the same triangles for the whole design. But I do like some placed glitter (and glitter in general not gonna lie) and I like adding some interest.

Yep like usual I got my toothpicks and just painted those triangles, no other rhyme or reason I just painted them on. For the glitter, I fished the glitter out of the respective bottles (which was sometimes slightly hard cause there's lots of different colours of glitter in the bottle that wants to stick together) and placed. Sometimes there was a lot of fishing haha.

Base: Barry M - Fuchsia and Barry M - Superdrug 50th Birthday
Orange: Rimmel - It's a Scorcher!
Blue: H&M - Blue My Mind
Green: Barry M - Kiwi
Purple: Illasmasqua - Jo'Mina
Plum glitter: Orly - Ridiculously Regal
Aqua and Purple glitter: OPI -
Neon Yellow, Pink, Green and Blue glitter: Claire's - Dizzy
Matte Pink, Green, Blue and Red glitter: The Face Shop - CMX321
Orange glitter: Barry M - Superdrug Xmas LE 2012 B and The Face Shop - Vanilla Sugar Yogurt (which ended up being a huge mistake cause the white base of that polish really interfered)
White glitter: Claire's - Fluffy

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a fabulous day!! :)

Green Nails: Rimmel - Block Your Green!

Hey guys, yes we have another swatch but it's a gorgeous green polish, I don't know why but I <3 green polish!! And Block Your Green! is so enthusiatic!! This was from a dear friend for my birthday and whilst it's taken me to swatch this I've used it for a lot of nail art, it's a great colour.

Now my camera was not capturing this whatsoever, my camera hates green and this is a prime example of that. Block Your Green! is FAR more green and less than this teal that we're seeing. I tried to colour correct but there's only so much I can do (cause I suck at colour correcting haha). I realise now that every post I used this polish I've never managed to get it colour accurate (it's a tricksy one).
Anyway, Block Your Green! is a forest green with a real pretty green shimmer (that's hard to see but can be seen sometimes). And yeah it's a great green and looks really nice.

I just want to say I really don't get the name however I really like the name, even though I really don't get it.
So yeah I'm a Rimmel fangirl now, but as much as I want to just grab the polish I am also very control. And me being me I have  to plan every colour and polish before buying, impulse buys are strange for me. But if there's a seriously amazing Rimmel polish (or just a really pretty one), you'll be seeing not long after I've seen it.

I used 3 coats which applied easily and it was pretty opaque. But this is a stainer, whilst the staining was mild the previous times I've used this the staining was real this time. While I could also blame picking (bad me), the issue is still there. Hopefully this will not be a recurring thing.
Another thing I find with Block Your Green! is that it creates weird chemical reactions, if I put a white polish on top of it, the white turns yellow :/ and the same thing happens with some glitter polishes.
Well I can overlook all these things not only do they not bother me that much but it's a great green and that's enough for me :)

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a nice day!! :)

Gimme Glitter: Revlon - Belle

Hi there folks!! Hope you're having a nice day. Today as you can probably guess I have a glitter. I think this is the first polish my best friend gave me like almost 3 years ago or something :O :3 I would literally layer this over EVERYTHING, I was a glitter fiend then as well. But I got over that phase and now I'm just an abuser of all glitter.

Belle is a glitter topper with silver and iridescent glitter and medium hexes of holographic glitter. It's a legit mix, not the most groundbreaking but most of the time you don't need that. Belle really is a great addition to nail art, adds that extra sparkle that I always need.

I do like a good Revlon polish, but they don't tend to do polishes that make me want to run down to the stores. But it's solid stuff. I think Belle could've been some kind of limited edition polish(?), so as usual my bezzie did a great pick.

The formula was good, like a glitter topper should there was a great amount of glitter on the brush and I wanted 2 coats for what I think is sufficient glitter coverage. I put this over Rimmel Block Your Green!

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day!! :)

Pink Nails: Madame Milly - Pink (no name)

Hello chums, I feel like I'm now taking the gaps in blogging now that my exams are over. Also I've been binge watching Sherlock and Benedict Cumberbatch is my life. So yeah. Anyway today's polish is a weird one, it's a not famous brand (which doesn't make it weird) but it's one of first first polishes I EVER got. It's part of a french manicure set that I got ages ago, and recently I got a new set of this french manicure set and I really really like this pink polish, so I wanted to show it today :)

Here we have a gorgeous darkish fuchsia pink creme. It's actually such a great colour, now I own a rather large amount of pink polish but this is unique for me and it stands out because well it's a pretty, striking shade of pink.

I've used this in the occasional nail art, like this watermelon design. Scroll to the bottom and you'll see one of my first bits of nail art with a different bottle of this polish. And I also used it for an ikat x design and I really liked that one. I don't know much about Madame Milly I think it's just a name they slap on the sets (though I could be very very wrong).

The formula was really really great, I think I used 3 coats to eliminate the minor streakiness but 2 coats was very good and it was very smooth and super easy to apply and opaque which was very great. It's great finding hidden gems like this!! :P

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day!! :)

What I've Been Wearing: Glitter Edition!!

Oh hey there guys, I tell you I have always wanted to do a What I've Been Wearing post but alas I have never been a swatcher or someone who changed my polish that frequently. But as you know since I've had exams I've had the chance to re-wear (this is not a word) different polishes. I had no polish on for most of the time but sometimes as a treat I'd paint my nails so today I have various looks to show you!! Of course they all have glitter, I can't function without glitter. I've done Gimme Glitter posts on all these glitter polishes but I think the combo on some of these are much better.

Hare Polish - The Teen Queen over The Face Shop - PK105
Oh my gosh I love this combo so much. I actually did this before my exams but anyway I was ENAMOURED. The shimmer against the pink was boss. And I <3 the blue glitter against the pink (and the blue glitter in general it's GORGEOUS).

Claire's - Fluffy over a gradient of Barry M - Prickly Pear, Barry M - Greenberry and Essie - Fear Or Desire with the magic ingredient Rimmel - Disco Ball
The gradient is so fun and I've found that I like to put a clear glitter polish under the "main glitter" (I've done that with the other looks), and I think it's really pretty. It wasn't my best gradient but glitter cures all ya'know. I think this is showing Fluffy in a much better light (even though the bubbles are still there :/), I love white glitter :3

OPI - Minnie Style, Barry M - Fairy Lights over Madame Milly - Pink (no name)
Who knew the combo of pink glitter over pink would be so legit. This is incredible in the sun and generally it as so pretty!! Fairy Lights under the "main glitter" was genius (not being narcissistic), I just loved the combo. My bottle of Minnie Style has much less white glitter in it cause I've fished out so much white glitter from that bottle. Also the formula was great!! 

The Face Shop - CMX321, Revlon - Belle over Rimmel - Block Your Green! 
This was a fun little combo, it was all crazy. Block Your Green! has some strange chemical reactions going on and Belle turned gold, which was weird. But again it was fun and I actually quite liked the gold. 

So that's all my glitter manis for today, I really enjoyed writing this post. Man I love glitter, and all these combos are so colourful!! Anyway thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day!! :)

My 2nd Blogaversary: Top 10 Favourite Nail Art!

Hey there guys, it's my 2nd blogaversary, what??! Yep 2 years ago out of a completely random idea I decided to start this blog. I feel like the stars aligned and my exams finished and my blogaversary is the day after it's pretty brill. Of course I just chilled and relaxed the whole day. And of course was pumped about my blogaversary!!
I really enjoyed this year, I like doing and improving nail art at my own speed. I have to say I have been very busy the whole year, as I had a lot of controlled assessments and the school play and music commitments really took up a lot of my time so I didn't have as much time to do nail art and nail art that was insane but I very much liked what I got to do. I am happy that the general quality has improved since last year, like pictures, cuticles and I guess painting too. I had an adventure of a year in nail art!!
I am hoping to develop and I can't see myself getting less busy during the school year but I'll do my best and I have the summer!! On another note, reading your comments was something I always really really looked forward to and loved, so thank you!!

I feel every year for my blogaversary a collage has to be made and I picked my favourite nail art, nothing I felt was worthy of writing home about but I really really LOVED these looks. You know cute is my favourite thing and I did try out some new things this year and generally I do think I've got better (practice makes perfect right?).
An aim I have for my next blogging is doing more nail art that's unique to me, I like painting some crazy things and I really want to emphasise that and have my nail art more personal to me and something to be MAD proud of. Perhaps I'll push my boundaries and go more artsy, but one step at a time. But yes I have my favourite nail art, some might be surprising but I picked nail art that's not necessarily the most detailed but the most joy inducing for me.

10. Poinsettia Nail Art. Kicking things off at 10 we have some Christmas poinsettia, I don't know why but I just really liked this design, the coloured outlines were different for me and I loved them. I love flowers like that and the extra sparkle from Jinx made this boss.

9. Rainbow Stars. Ok I love that base, rainbow glitter guise. Add the stars and it's cuteness at it's finest. Perhaps it was the combo of rainbow + stars that made this work for me. Simple designs can definitely have the cute factor.

8. Eggs and Bacon. Food. You can't escape it. Or I can't escape it at least, there's more food to come don't worry. I loved the distressed background too. Do I really need to explain much more, it's cute food and this is PlumeriaPainted.

7. Realistic Tiger. Realism is a rare thing on PlumeriaPainted (what can I say, I love cartoons), but I branched to it for the 31 Day Challenge and I'm very proud of that tiger. It's totes fierce. Also I really liked those red sparkly tiger stripes.

6. The Blue Umbrella. I was so enamoured with that short and I was happy to try and translate the adorable story onto my nails, and I was pleased with the outcome. Those umbrellas are just too cute!!!

5. Lily Pulitzer Butterflies. I'd never done a butterfly mani like this before and I loved the printed look. The wings were my favourite, the colour scheme and how all the colours blended. Add the beautiful shimmery blue base and I think we have a winner.

4. Primary Colour Galaxy. Hands down the best galaxy I've ever painted, I <3 that colour scheme and I've always loved galaxy manicures a lot and when I finally do one right it comes near the top of my list. The black and white glitter is edgy too, an edgy galaxy sounds pretty sweet.

3. Rainbow Fish. Those fins were big and bombastic, seriously they were so sparkly. I had these one for New Year's and they were so fun. I'm really pleased with how the fish came out too, the crazy combo of the blue, purple and pink was nice too. I really liked the base, the base can really add or take away a lot.

2. Sweet Food. Hello cute food, you're my favourite forever. They're also yummy (except the banana, sorry I really don't like bananas but I forgive this one :P) and it was the perfect excuse for glitter!! Yeah cuteness and glitter, it's gonna be a PlumeriaPainted favourite. But the combination of all the desserts was a knockout for me, it's a cute food explosion!!

1. Intelligently Cute Owls in the Cherry Blossoms. Maybe this is a surprise but this manicure made me unbelievably happy. While I've done much more complex nail art, this is just pure cute nail art bliss. I think the base is perfectly edgy for the sweet scene, I like the crazy colours of the flowers and don't even get me started on the owls. Those glasses!! And I loved the placed glitter (I was on such a placing kick) and the colours of the owls who just perch all awwwww. Yeah I never make sense haha, you know that reading my blog ;)

Well I hope you liked my picks, to another year of sweet nail art and polish. Fun fact I had 8 right hand and 2 left hand designs, I got some non-dominant hand favourites (which is pretty cool I guess). Thank you so much reading, I mean it every time I write it. Thanks for taking some of your time out to look at my nail art or swatches and reading ma bordering on insane thoughts haha. I really hope to bring you even better nail art (and swatches) over the next year (not in a narcissistic way), it's really exciting thinking that way!! I hope you have a brilliant day!! :)

Tropical Floral Nails

Oh hey guys!! My. Exams. Are. Over. You guys don't even know the weight lifted off of me, I can do some proper nail art now!! And yeah I went shopping so expect some pretty polishes. It's also my blogaversary tomorrow so expect a funky post then. I'm happy to be back with some nail art (I did this a while ago), I love florals but I'm just not the best at them. I'll always strive to get better. This manicure was inspired by Samarium's Swatches (I love her blog so much), there was a nail art design on her instagram and I loved it so much I had to create it (with a few changes).

It's just so fun and summer-y, it makes me happy cause skies aren't grey. I <3 the colour combo, it's nothing groundbreaking, but sometimes it doesn't have to be. Pink, orange and yellow flowers are so nice!! It also has a more wiggley and squiggley (that's quite the description) feel, and I like it!! Oh yeah also it's neon too, so obviously it has my heart.

So I did ma base, added some glitter. I started with a white base then I used the brushes of the polishes and dabbed on various colours, I actually mean dab this time. I had very little polish on the brush then I dabbed. I did the same kind of thing for the leaves but there was only 1 colour so I used a toothpick.

Base: Revlon - Blue Lagoon, Topshop - Green Room and Topshop - Razzmatazz (this may not have been the best idea but I needed glitter)
Pink: Nails Inc - Notting Hill Gate (it blended perfectly for this)
Orange: Rimmel - It's A Scorcher!, Bourjois - Tangerine Fatal and Models Own - Beach Party
Yellow: Barry M - Lemon Ice Cream
Green: China Glaze - I'm With The Lifeguard
Black: Lovely Me:Ex - Black
White base: Lovely Me:Ex - White

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a really lovely day!! :)
