Making it up as I go along…

Hello! I know many people plan their manicure, having a picture in their heads and then recreating it on their nails. I occasionally work that way (usually when doing challenge prompts) but mostly I work more organically. Which sounds really poncy written down!

Hello! Today I have my second entry into the #whencolourscollide challenge – a bi-weekly challenge where you have to create a mani just using the two or three colours given. This time the colours were purple and pink, and although I love both colours, I couldn’t come up with a mani that I loved. I’m planning a post with the rejects, but today here is my entry!
