First day of 3 Nail Challenge

Today being the 1st of September (ALREADY?!?) marks the first challenge of the 3 Nail Challenge with the theme of antique.
When I read the themes I had a little idea of what I would want to do for today 

This brooch is usually found on the collar of my blazer. As much as I'd like to call it antique it isn't really.

 So I started with a base coat and then 2 coats of ELF Black. I knew that the lady of the cameo would be for my thumb so I went with lace for the remainder of my nails. I used the silver from my Fearne Cotton for Boots with a small paintbrush (I'm waiting for some proper nail art brushes to arrive), a dotting tool and a black striper and a silver glitter striper.


For the cameo I used a white striper. It was a lot harder than I thought it would be BUT I am aiming with this challenge to stretch myself into trying looks that I've not yet done. 

So what do you think of the finished look?

Even though it was tough I enjoyed having to think through and work out how this look would fit my nails and look forward to the rest of the themes.

If you've enjoyed this look and want to see how I work with the rest of the challenge then I'd love it if you subscribed. 

If you want to check out the rest of the ladies taking part here is the list again
