Cath Kidson Inspired Nail Art

I'm a HUGE fan of Cath Kidson prints. I particularly like their vintage roses. They remind me of old oil cloth fabric. For some strange reason they always make me feel like baking. I'm sure there's a connection. Maybe clean fresh oilcloth covered kitchen tables for rolling pastry? 

These will be fun Easter time nails too. They're a wee bit Easter Egg like.
I coated my ring fingers and my thumbs with a medium blue base and the rest of my nails got a coat of pink. I added blue dots to the pink nails using the tip of a bobby pin. The blue nails got a splotch of dark pink and then I swirled medium and light pink over the dark pink splotches. I added leaves by dipping my bobby pin into two greens at once and dotting beside the rose swirls. I let them dry and then gave them two coats of clear top coat.
