GOT Polish Challenge: Valentines

I wasn’t really inspired to do a typical Valentines mani with lots of pink and red hearts so I wanted to come at it from a different angle. I’d been doing simple Valentines poems with some of my students at work so decided to go with “roses are red, violets are blue..” as my theme (although my violets are purple not blue…)

I found a couple of stock images of rose and violet pattern illustrations which you can see here and here which I used as the base for my design.
I was pretty pleased with how it turned out and think my freehand skills are getting a lot better and considerably neater!

As well as this mani being for the GOT Polish challenge being hosted by Crumpet’s Nail Tarts, I’m going to enter it into the Valentines Nail Art competition which Luchessa and the Polish Alcoholic are hosting. There are some absolutely amazing entries which have already been submitted to their competition but I’d love to have the chance of winning a gift card for Polish Alcoholic’s online store which is the very exciting prize!
