The illustrated nail inspired lace nail art

Mouthful or what :P 
I LOVE Sophie Harris-Greenslade aka The Illustrated Nail, she does some cray nail art, she's one of the best in the biz and I took the time earlier to properly look through her work and decide what I thought I could achieve. I orignally wanted to do tattoo style writing on my nails but then I found her lace designs and I loved them so cute. I used her designs and then made one of my own using hers as a template as I don't like to just copy, you have to add something that's your own. But my point is she's amazing! 


I love the thumb the most, it's so cute like a little doily :P my ring finger didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped, I didn't do the flowers large enough but oh well it's still nice :) I like this look but I prefer  Sophie's version :). This was really quick to do on top of Essie so that's always nice and it doesn't really matter if you go a bit wrong as it isn't that noticeable :P.
I'm still away but I'll be back soon and I know exactly what is going on my nails ;) hehehe 
Seeyou later!

Lady, you always knock me dow with your freehanding. Amazing, I say. I just love it. Love the thumb and the middle finger. Just perfect!

Wow I can't believe you freehanded this! It looks amazing, and actually I want to say that the ring finger is my favorite! I think I want to try this out myself...

Your thumb is my favorite, too. Awesome cute idea, though! *hearts* I love how long your nails are getting. Really shows off your long, slender fingers. :)
