I was so pleased when I got two Color club nail polishes in June’s Birchbox and I couldn’t wait to try them out. I wanted to do something creative with them pretty quickly but I’ve had a run of icky headaches which has stopped me from doing as much as I’d like.
As such it’s taken me a bit longer to do something arty and pretty, but here’s what I did in the end.

Please forgive the dry skin/cuticles around my thumb, I’ve no idea what’s going on with it.
But I was really pleased with this! I alternated the two colours on each finger and then decorated the thumbs, I would normally have opted for one thumb and one ring finger for decorating but both of my ring finger nails are pretty short at the moment so I went for both thumbs.
The bright apple green shade is called ‘London Calling’ and the bright pink/lilac colour is called ‘Pardon my french’ and they’re both Birchbox exclusives.
On each thumb I did a nail stamp pattern in a pretty, summery flower pattern, in the opposite colour to the base. I then also found a fimo flower to go with the pattern colour as best as I could. The flowers weren’t quite as easy to work with as they have been previously because they tried to curl up a little and lifted some of the polish that they sat on, but I think I managed to sort it ok – considering I’ve not done a lot of nail art for quite a while I’m quite pleased with the outcome.
