Cath Kidston Inspired Vintage Nails

It was my BFF's birthday on Tuesday and she adores Cath Kidston. So I have been spending a lot of time on the website and this inspired this...

The thumb, middle and little finger were inspired by this design - image is taken from the Cath Kidston website found here

The index and ring finger were inspired by this fabric also found here

But I changed the background colour to blue.
I used Barry M in Blueberry Ice cream for the background and Mint Green for the light foliage
For the white I used Models Own Snow White
For the pinks I used the Nails Inc heathered grey and plum from the Diet Coke Promotion in Boots.
I also used a little acrylic paint for the dark green, Sinful Colors Strong Nails as a base and Seche Vite as top coat.
I hope you like them :-D I am quite pleased with them but I think I went a little too heavy on the floral part on the ring finger nail. I prefer the look on the index finger nail. I think the effect is pretty good overall anyway.
The most accurate photo colour wise is the last one.
