Orange Pastel Paisley with River Island

Hey everyone! Today I have something a little different to show you. I've come together with River Island to do some nails based on their new Spring/Summer pastel collections. It's been a while since I tried any paisley. I wish that I'd done the detailing in a lighter colour to keep with the pastel theme, but at the same time I like how they came out. My inspiration for these nails and information on how to create them is after the jump!

I was inspired by the detailing on this fringed kimono, which unfortunately I can't seem to find on their website. But you can see the rest of their pastel clothing here and here. They have such a great range that's definitely worth checking out! 

To do these nails I started with a base of Barry M - Full Throttle*, from the recent Speedy Quick Dry spring collection, then with a small brush and Essie - Orange it Obvious I created the paisley by first drawing tear drop shapes, putting a thin line in the middle and then dots on the outside. Then I finished off with a coat of Seche Vite to seal it all in. 

What do you think? Let me know in the comments!
