Nail Art - Purple Waves

I got the idea for this design from a blog that I thought I saved to my favourites and now can't find. I've googled and googled and can't see the tutorial pictures that inspired me anywhere. If YOU know where to find pictures of manicures that look similar to this one please leave a message in the comments section. Please don't leave a link, just the name of the blog where you found the pictures.

That said, I love this manicure! It was surprisingly easy to do and looks great!

I started with two coats of Face Shop - pale lilac. For anyone reading this from Sydney there is now a Faceshop store on Hurstville Westfields. Polishes start at $3.

After the base colour dried I added a diagonal strip of Zoya - Julieanne. I needed two coats for good coverage.

I then used small and medium dotting tools to add the wavy bits. If anyone is interested in a tutorial just let me know and I'll be happy to create one.

What do you think of this pattern?
