BFF Challenge: Cath Kidson Mix & Match

This is the LAST week of the beloved BFF Challenge, and it's Sally's week of fun themes. Today's theme is 'Cath Kidson', a British designer that uses a lot of flowers, polka dots, stripes, and general cuteness in her prints. I did some muted mix & match designs inspired by her prints!

These were fun and fairly easy to do! Probably the most difficult nail was the stripey one because I'm not particularly confident about getting my lines straight, and being nervous makes them even more wobbly - of course. I used Sinful Colors Adventure Island, SH Creamy Olive, Misa Dirty Sexy Money and Wet n Wild Lavender Creme (which is obvs more of a hot pink). I used Konad white and red to do the flower stamp on my index finger, and freehanded the stripes, dots, and flower buds on the other nails. A lot of the colors for the details are just different colors mixed together; i.e. the dots on the ring finger are SC Adventure Island + white = fun, weird off-white-yellow-ish

Don't forget to check out the other Cath Kidson themed nails for today's challenge!
