Guest Post from Debbie at The Crumpet

Hello, all! I'm taking a bit of time off and enjoying the peace and quite that camping provides for a bit, so I've asked a few of my favorite bloggers to help me out with some guest posts! 

First up, is Debbie from The Crumpet and I'm so incredibly honored to have her on my blog! She was one of the first bloggers that I read when I first got involved in nail art and she is such a positive light in the nail community. Not only does she run a ridiculous number of online nail groups she also provides endless inspiration to all those around her with her creative challenges and stunning nail art and swatches. Her blog was also the first guest post I had ever done, so it only seems fitting that she is the first guest post ever on my blog! Love what she's come up with and so happy to have her! 
Hi Goddesses
Lindsey is off on vaycay, so today you have me, Debbie, from The Crumpet to keep you company. 

I'm really honoured to be on Lindsey's blog.  She's one of my favourite bloggers, as well as a co-member of the Digit-al Dozen.   I remember being blown away when she won my Blogger of the Month competition last year, and I couldn't understand how this amazing nail artist had so few blog followers.  Of course, I didn't realize at the time that she had a billion IG followers :)
Usually, I look at what Lindsey does and just sigh, knowing I'll never be able to replicate.  The one area we do have in common though is a love of floral manis, and whilst mine if nowhere is near as complex as hers, it will hopefully make you smile :)
All the polishes in this mani are from the OPI Brazil collection, with Don't Bossa Nova Me Around on base.    Then we have - 
* yellow - I Just Can't Cope-acabana
* light orange - Where Did Suzi's Man-go
* pink - Kiss Me I'm Brazilian
* coral - Live.Love.Carnaval.
All the flowers were done with a medium sized dotting tool.  I created the 4 petals first, and then added the yellow centre afterwards.

Perfectly summery :)   Thanks for having me xx
