Detailed Pink Roses

Hey everyone! Do you ever do a design and whilst you're painting it you just know you're gonna love it? That was how I felt about these nails. I pushed myself slightly out of my comfort zone painting the roses and I was so proud of how they turned out. They were inspired by these fabrics I found on Pinterest, and I decided to combine two of the designs to go hand in hand, but I kind of wish I'd just done the roses on all fingers.  I wore these for a week and I couldn't stop staring at my nails the whole time. I was especially pleased with them because I have so little time to paint my nails these days and I sometimes worry that I'm losing the skill, so it was nice to see that I haven't. It's definitely given me the bug to try out some more designs that are slightly out of my usual style once I'm back from travelling so watch this space. 


I used Barry M - Festival Fever*, and Orly - Pamper Me* as the base colours. For the flowers I used Essie - Chastity* for the other shade of pink, Sally Hansen - Redgy* for the red, Bourjois - Bleu Mysterieux for the navy and a combination of greens and whites mixed together for the leaves. The white is Barry M - Cotton and the black is Barry M - Black Forest. Finished with a coat of Seche Vite.
