I promised to try out some new nail art while I was on holiday and here's the first; nail bows!

I really like this one; it's cute and pretty versitile! I did find it really tricky to paint my right hand but with a little perseverance I managed all fingers and thumbs, phew! 

I used my autumn favourite models own slate grey as the base coat here. (have any of you purchased the mirrorball collection yet? I just discoved the wonderland box set... swoon! it's first on my pay day to buy list at the end of the month!)

once the base was dried I followed these steps: 



they look pretty don't they? I decided to finish off with a few white polka dots on the bows but this is optional!


hope you like them!
