Then and Now: Week 4

Hey everyone! Here is week 4 of my then and now 'challenge'. You'll find this completely different to any christmas manis you're going to be seeing on the 1st of December because this is completely and utterly summery. (oops!) As I mentioned last week I've decided to add certain things to these nails because some are a bit too simple, and as you'll see with these nails I've adapted the roses. More after the jump!

Originally these nails would have been done all with a dotting tool and all with nail varnish but this time I used a brush for the roses and acrylic paint, and I used nail varnish and a dotting tool for the polka dots. Both times I used a base of Barry M - Matt White

Let me know what you think in the comments! Alice
