TPC - Round 8: Where the Wild Roses Grow

... is right here on my nails! :)

Yes, you guessed it - I chose roses for today's challenge.
Not only am I feeling all girly girl and vintage, it's also Spring! What other excuse could one possibly want?

Also... I don't know why but, I couldn't take my head out of this song here :D
Hence today's manicure:

I find it amazing that just from blobs of polish one can actually go and make beautiful shaped like roses :)
Oh, this makes me love nail art even more! It truly does! :D

I did all my nails white using two coats of Purple Professional No.32.
You can see I started with little roses on my pinky and all other went way out of proportion but let's just imagine in our heads that's the way it was supposed to be all along, just 'cause I'm in a very good mood today ;)

For the roses I used Prestige Orangerie and Rimmel London Pink of Me.
I then did the lines using Orangerie in the pink roses and the same white base shade in the orange roses.

Last but not least, the leaves on all of the background, to make for a full design, were made with the turquoise polish: Turquoise Shimmer :)

Feeling springy and girly? I certainly am!
Hope you've enjoyed this one: I did promise a better mani for today, so let me know if I fullfilled that down in the comment section below :)

Make sure you check all other designs on today's Tri-polish Challenge after that.
And don't forget to have a lovely lovely day! :D

Hugs & Kissies,

  1. This manicure is perfect for spring!
    You have beautiful long nails!

    1. Thank you so much for your sweet comment - this one is indeed giving me that springy feeling! :)

  2. So GORGEOUS! Love the roses look so real! You need to do a tutorial about this, I'd love to try it myself!

    1. Awwww, that is too nice of you! :)) I've watched some tutorials myself to do this and it's really not complicated at all.
      Just get a thin blob of polish on your nail; it can be as small or as big as you want it to be, as long as it is irregular - don't go making it a round one, 'cause roses aren't perfect :)
      Then, with either an orange stick or a thin brush, draw uneven squiggles around it and in the middle to add the illusion of petals ;)
      You'll do lovely and I can't wait to see it when you do so! **
