Princess Jasmine Nails

Long time no post!
I had a cold and was not in the mood for nail painting, I'm feeling much better now though so whilst walking the kids to school this morning I asked my daughter what I should paint on my nails today and she said 'Umm, Princess Jasmine? Is that a bit tricky for you Mum?'
... Challenge accepted.

I just did a quick Google search to find an image I liked to work from (HERE) and went to work.
The colours I used were Barry M Berry Ice Cream for the base, and Barry M Matt White to plot out a shape. Then I used Barry M Black for Jasmines hair, and mixed Barry M Nude with some Famous by Sue Moxley Nude to get the skin colour. Next I used Barry M Gold Foil for her earrings and necklace, Essie Mint Candy Apple for the top and hair band, then Barry M Gold Foil and Rimmel Sky High for the jewel. I  mixed Barry M Nude with Mushroom for the shaded areas on Jasmines skin, and used Barry M Matt White again to plot in the shape of her eyes and mouth. I used Barry M Shocking Pink for the lips, Barry M Black for the eyebrows, eyeliner and pupil and  Barry M Mushroom mixed with a bit of Block Orange for her eye colour. Then topped it all off with a layer of Seche Vite.
And that was that!

You may have noticed the pictures are a little different. I bought a portable camera photo studio kit from Ebay last week (HERE) which I used for the first time to take these photos and I decided to try a black background for a change, not entirely sure if I like it but let me know what you think or if you even noticed the difference!
