This past Sunday I went to a surprise baby shower for my cousin. I knew I wanted to do something special and I had very grand plan of gradients and free-hand artwork. While I was taking off the polish from my first failed gradient, Andrew said he thought of something different for my nails. He wanted me to to a plaid/crisscross design and a bow. You know what happens when your fiance requests a nail design…you do it!!
He wanted baby pink as a base with blue and green for the crisscross. I didn’t have a creme green striper, so I substituted purple and I think it looks great. This was my first time doing a bow, so please don’t be too harsh. I know there are some errors with how turned out, however I’m very proud of it.
Everyone at the shower loved my nails! These were so easy that I can’t wait to try this with other color combos!
For this mani I used two coats of At First Blush by Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure and two stipers from Kiss Nail Artist in Soft Blue and Soft Purple. I topped everything with topcoat (please excuse the smudging on my pinkie).
