Sick of Valentine's day nail art?
I'll admit it, I've never done rose as art nail art before. I've used 3D roses as nail art in my pre-blogging days but never painted roses before. Here's some romantic roses!
So pretty! It needed a second photo!
I started out with a base of Essie's Warm & Toasty Turtleneck which is a lovely orchid purple. It's from this past season's holiday collection. I found it for half off! Woot! For the roses, I painted some light pink and stamped roses over it from BM-14. The pink stamping is Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fuchsia Flare. I added some green for the leaves. I then used a striper brush and painted the lines using Warm & Toasty Turtleneck. I love how straight the lines turned out. I added a 3D rose and rhinestones. Love!
I then this manicure would be good with polka dots.
I'm not too good at making dots with dotting tools. I thought I'd try to stamp the dots with plate KD3. I stamped the dots with Sinful Shine Wisp and the dots came out a little smeared. I should have used Konad special white for stamping. I used the stamping decal technique to add opaque roses using BM-14.
Thanks for reading!
