One of my favorite things to do when I have some free time or need a pick me up is to draw and paint in my sketch book. I carry around a little black book, a pastel set and some water colors for when I’m “in the mood” and if I’m lucky I’ll find a great spot at a cafe (maybe even with some friends) and sketch away (no it’s not always nail related).

As I mentioned in my previous CND SPRING COLLECTION swatches, I fell in love with Vinylux “Mint Convertible” and I really wanted to create some nail art with it so this is the initial inspiration behind this nail art.

Mint, Black and Gold – The Perfect Combo

I love mint, black and gold together – so I knew I wanted to combine these colors (see previous nail art with this combination on INSTAGRAM)

It All Starts With a Sketch

With latte in hand, I started to sketch out some designs and painted my base with CND Vinylux “Mint Convertible” and OPI “4 in the Morning” from the Gwen Stefani collection. I wanted to add some gold, so I chose OPI “Love.Angel.Music.Baby” also from the Gwen Stefani for OPI collection.

I probably could have stopped here because I love this look on it’s own.
