Violet Jump-Ups (31DC2016)


These were supposed to be violet nails for day six’s theme of violet in the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge (actually, they’re supposed to be this purple and green Waverly fabric (and wallpaper, and matching border, and frilly bolster pillow, and…) I was obsessed with as a kid, hence all the green in these supposedly purple nails) but they came out looking more like Johnny Jump-Ups.  Which is actually quite fitting, as Johnny Jump-Ups are an incredibly invasive – but adorable! – species and they tend to run allllll over anything they’re planted near, beside or in the approximate vicinity of.  Including apparently my nail art!

And yeah, I was totally the kid that lusted after co-ordinated floral textiles.  Laura Ashley was my jam when I was little!  Cabbage roses everywhere
