Swapping Designs with Dahlia Nails

Hey everyone! Today's post is something a little different, a design swap with the lovely girls over at Dahlia Nails. They each recreated one of my designs, and I recreated one of theirs. They've recreated by Rob Ryan nails and my Pink Leopard nails so you can click HERE to go see that. For my recreation, I chose this gorgeous triangle design. I was trying to choose between a few designs that I really liked (and may still do), but something about this one just stood out to me.

For my design I used a base of Barry M - Coconut* (aka my new favourite off-white/cream polish ever) from the new Summer Gelly range (full review coming tomorrow), and then I used Graffiti Nails - Pistachio for the outline of the triangles with a small brush, and then I filled in the centre with acrylic paint, all topped off with a coat of Seche Vite.

The original design by Jo at Dahlia Nails

Here's a collage of all our designs and recreations so you can see what we all picked, but don't forget to read their full post here.
