Special Nails

Freehand Water Colour

Hello all, today is a special day for me as it would have been my Mum's birthday, bless she would have been 74, passed away too soon. She was so special, funny and there for anyone whenever they needed anything. She even retained her sense of humour even when she was really ill.
If you've been following me for a while, then you'll know I always do a special nail art in her memory.  Below is a professional photo taken with my eldest daughter (who is now 26!)
The past few weeks I've been practicing free hand water colour, ready for today. 
Inspired by Kseniiakupina on YouTube I created my mani using some new Gouache paints. I'd love to one day have the same paints that she uses, but they are quite expensive!

I added some bling and so happy with how this looks, a perfect birthday tribute.
These are the Gouache paints and I'll do a video on them very soon.
Thank you all so much for stopping by.
Stay safe and much love....


  1. This came out beautiful! It’s so pretty and a lovely tribute.

  2. The flowers are beautiful...I love that they look almost watercolor-like. The picture of your mother and daughter shows so much love; I can see why you miss her so much.

  3. This is a stunning mani Tracey. I'm really loving your freehand and hope you do more of it. Sending you extra love today.

  4. Aww, what a sweet photo and a Lovely mani!
