Minty Lollipop Vines

Friends, today is 'inspired by a pattern' day and after much deliberation (read: scrolling through Pinterest) I finally, finally decided upon this rug pattern. But since this is 'inspired by' not 'recreate in perfect detail because bleh' I did some more organic, curving vines on an ombre of dusty minty colors. Love this. Love love love it. Btw, sorry that the photos seem a little washed out; I might re-shoot some tmrw before taking these off!

This might also be perhaps the most perfect ombre skittle set I have ever managed; the colors are so very lovely and perfect together! From pointer to pinkie they are two coats of Sally Hansen Garter Toss, Sally Hansen Green Tea, Zoya Bevin, and FingerPaints Vintage Velvet. I did the vine design with CND Perfectly Bare. Perfectly Bare is a 1-coat nude pink, like a Band-Aid and it's one of those HG polishes. I thought the peach color would go well with the mints since they're almost compliments, and I like the result!

here's a Pinterest-worthy collage, if you like that sort of thing!

This also goes so well with February's Polish Day challenge, inspired by nature! The weather has been pretty back and forth here in Georgia, but I am not complaining because I know how nice I've got it. I'm just so thankful that it hasn't been raining too often; I'd take cold and snow over endless rain any day.
