Nails - polka dots/roses

Here are my nails for the weekend! I painted them last night, before going out for dinner with my boyfriend.

All nail polishes I used are Models Own. Tickled Pink as a base coat for all nails, minus my ring fingers, which I coated with Jade Stone. For the polka dots I used Jade Stone, which I applied using a dotting tool. And for the roses I used Tickled Pink, Pastel Pink and Green Tea - I did the roses using a cocktail stick, I think I need a bit of practice with them but I don't think they look too bad for a first try!

I'm feeling loads better now, I think my cold is on its way out! Which is just as well, as I'm due to go out for my friend's birthday tonight and I wanted to be feeling well enough for it.

I had my first order from my new shop yesterday - pleased as punch! Victoria has helped lots with promotion with her review of some of my pieces, so thank you lovely! :) Speaking of which, Victoria also has a lovely bigcartel shop and is offering 10% off all bracelets this weekend with the code LILYLOVESLOLA10 so make sure you go check out her shop! I've treated myself to a couple :)
