A Walk With Purple Nature

Hello everyone! It's already February and seeing as February's birthstone is Amethyst, I was in the mood for purple manicure! Besides, I was really inpired by this pillow found on etsy. The colours caught my eye and I knew I wanted to do vector-like designs on my nails. I did them a day before going on a short vacation, it wasn't planned but they ended up matching with my outfit that very day. Haha!

Somehow, the idea of graphic purple leaves and stems just couldn't get out of my mind. And decided to just go with that idea. I love the purple hue. I'm really glad I get to use this purple  (BK09) for this design, haha! I think I'm in love with it all the more now!

Initially, I thought of just alternating the colours between grey and purple but I wanted them to look a little more interesting so I added black leaves over the purple background and included a brown background for the index.

I was kinda in a rush so the lines aren't as crisp as I'd hope for them to appear. Nevertheless, these colour combination is definitely one of my favourites! Totally love and enjoyed wearing these and having them on my nails!

  • DIY striper brush 
  • BK 09
