Gold Lilac Roses

Happy Sunday everyone! Although there's only an hour of Sunday left. I've had a busy but chilled weekend, and I managed to find time to do a few nail designs today. One of them was this floral design inspired by Follow That Way.  I wasn't sure whether I'd ever be able to recreate one of her amazing florals, the detail she puts into them is astonishing, but I decided to give it a go, and I'm really really happy with how these came out. 

One thing I couldn't decide on was my accent nails, I originally did them with some of the nail negative space and with gold foil down the side but I wasn't 100% on them and the pictures didn't come out very well, so I did these, and then I did gold glitter accents. Of the three, these came out best in photos and I think the fact that they're quite muted means that the flowers stand out a bit more. 

I used OPI - I Cannoli Wear OPI and Barry M - Coconut Cream* as my base colours, then I used Barry M - Prickly Pear, Essie - Shades On, Barry M - Cotton and iZ Beauty - Front Row for the roses using my So Nailicious Warrior Brush. The leaves were done using OPI - I'm Sooo Swamped, and Deborah Lippmann - Spring Buds. The gold foil is from Born Pretty store, and so are the studs. Finished with a coat of Seche Vite.
