I decided to do Debbie's gradient flowers from this post. Debbie absolutely rocks the dotticure flowers so I wanted to give them a try to honour her and her nail skills.
I decided to change it up by using one of Debbie's favourite colors (purple) and a brand that hails from her home country (which happens to be one of my nail hero brands), A England. I started with a gradient base of A England Fonteyn, Crown of Thistles and Lady of The Lake.
I then tried to copy Debbie's flower pattern, including the color pattern with a dotting tool. Seriously the number of times I looked back and forth between my nails and Debbie's photo was amusing. I probably looked like I was watching a tennis match with my head swinging back and forth like that!
Lastly, I matte'ed it to see how it would look. I like the sparkly holo version better but here's the matte version for those of you who like matte.
So, once again, thank you to Debbie for being who you are. I hope you know how much we all love you. It's funny how some of the people I like the most are people I've never met. I've never had "internet friends" before but I'm so glad I do and that is mostly thanks to Debbie. I have a feeling there may be another Crumpet-inspired mani or two in the links below so if you'd like to see how she has inspired the rest of the Digit-al Dozen, check them out.
'Til next time...
