Hey everyone! It's been a while since my mani swap with Dahlia Nails (which you can see here), and we decided that it was probably time to do a new one. If you haven't of Dahlia Nails, it's run by two lovely ladies, Jo and Emma. They're both great at nail art and you can check out their blog here. I was actually having trouble picking a design to recreate because there's so many I like! In the end I chose to recreate their 'Spring Dotticure' design. They've recreated my Negative Space Florals and my Spotted Owl designs, and they've both done them brilliantly. I think it's a nice/funny coincidence that me and Emma chose such similar designs to recreate!
|Original design by Emma|
I used a base of Graffiti Nails - Base Coat, and then with a dotting tool I added Barry M - Sky Blue*, Barry M - Cotton*, Barry M - Fondant* and Barry M - Full Throttle* from the recent spring releases, topped off with Seche Vite
Here's a collage of all the designs together, with the originals on the left and the recreations on the right.
What do you think? Let me know in the comments!
And dont forget to head over to Dahlia Nails to see what they have to say about their recreations.
