Perfect Pair

Hi, have a great Sunday everyone, last night I can't sleep... So I decided to do a research for my new layout and change my logo at the same time... It was already 1am when I fell asleep... And when I woke up this morning, I came up with a nail art design that will blend with my new theme, it's green and blue with a touch of brown and flower, here's the "Perfect Pair" NOTD that I made. I divided the two colors, green and blue posh nail polish, I chose m63 konad image plate because it looks like a tribal design similar to my background, and I added flower rhinestones on it....Hope you like it!!

Blue Bear + Mickey Mouse Plate

Hi, today's mani is my freehand blue bear design and our door mat.. =) while Jamir is sleeping I got an idea when I saw the bear mat on the floor, I decided to copy the bear mat design on my nails, using nail art brush, and dotting tool...I made this NOTD only within 15mins., yes 15mins. because I might not be able to finish my work when Jamir's wake up... Here's the finished product...Do they look the same?
Take a look at the roses, ohh its fully bloomed, I took a pic of it when I woke up early this morning...
