Day 169) Nail art inspired by summer bracelets

I bought these bracelets a few days ago:
They are light green and light orange.
Nice for summer, but I especially like the combi of light green, light orange and silver.
So, why not use these bracelets as today's inspiration...?!

Step 1:
For this step I copied the colors of the bracelets. I painted my nails in a light orange, except for the ring finger, this nail got a light green color
* Catrice Soft Nail Lacquer Limited Edition Candy Shock - C03 Bring Me Peach
* Essence Floral Grunge nail polish (The Suede) - 03 Grunge me tender!
(The colors don't show well on this picture (darker). The last picture of this blogpost will show them better!)
Step 2:
For step 2 I tried to copy the look of a knotted bracelet.
I used a striper brush and nail polish, slightly darker than the light orange and green.
Nail polish used:
* Catrice Ultimate Nail Lacquer - 02 Pimp My Shrimp
* Catrice Ultimate Nail Lacquer Limited Edition Hip Trip - C02 Green Days
When you look closely to the picture, you'll see that I've painted diamonds with straight lines between them. These straight lines I'm going to use in the next step.
Step 3:
Now that we've copied the colors and the knotting there's still something left; the silver beads.
So, in this step I also used silver beads.
On each straight line I placed two silver beads. Except for the thumb; on the tip I didn't use only beads but I also used some half Pearls (to make it even more cute ;-P).

So, now I have matching nails with my bracelets ;-D
