I've been having a pre spring love affair with pastels but today I decided to va va voom my nails with a bright splash of colour!

firstly can I say it's godammn hard to find a primary yellow nail polish! after raiding a few shops I finally found a maybelline yellow that was a close match to what I wanted, I'm not crazy about the formula it took 4 coats for full coverage but beggars can't be choosers!

once I had the yellow base I dabbed on red alert and feeling blue from models own and drew on the rough outline with my black nail art pen to finish.

this is quite a simple nail art and doesn't have to be perfect (especially on your tricky other hand aha!) plus it's a favourite of mine as there's so many variations depending on the colours you pick (this one is definitely my andy warhol inspired choice!) 

ps. don't forget to seal your efforts with a good top coat but be gentle with your strokes or you'll risk blurring the pattern.. grrrrr!

anyhow I hope you like them, I'll be back with another nail art next week!

back soon kitty kats
