A Shimmering Pastel Forest

Hello all - I'm back again already, I'm on a roll! Today the nail art I'm sharing is inspired by gabys_nails on Instagram. It's from quite a while ago but has been sitting on my nail art to do list! Mine came out a lot more yellow than hers, and more yellow than I'd intended, but I still like it! I like the pastel take on a forest at night time look so thought I'd give it a go.

I started with 'smoosh' nail art for the base, which involved dabbing nail polish of a few different colours on a stamper, and dabbing it onto my nails. I put the yellow on first which is probably why it came out so strong! I then used purple nail polish and the Noel 06 stamping plate from Mo You London to add the trees. Next up I added a few stars and moons using the same plate, and then a coat of Scattered Holo Taco. I was so impressed with the scattered holo, it's so perfect and even better than what I had hoped for! My boyfriend said it looked like snow, which definitely inspired me to use it on some winter or Christmas designs later in the year.
