TPC - Round 13: Golden Leaves

Why golden? Because one can't simply wear green.
And why not? Well, because...

It's Tri-Polish Challenge all over again! :) hehehe
This month's colous are red, pink and purple. I cheated a bit and chose a lilac instead but that's because it's always purple this, purple that and I wanted lilac - lilac is just a tad lighter shade of purple, after all :)

Anyway, partners in crime for this month are:
Red - Inocos Estrelícia
Pink - Nails Inc. Kensington Palace Gardens
Purple - Linda Johansen Lilac Lilly

I also took the chance to use the also allowed extras:
White: Kiss SPA02 White
Gold: Beauty UK Glam Nails Aztec

And here's what I came up with, using those babies:










Roses over stripes over a gradient! :)
I did the gradient using the pink and the purple for the tips, over which I then added a couple of white stripes.
To top it all I drew a rose in - the highlights are done using the same pink of the background, and the leaves just had to be golden as green is not in this month's colours ;)













You can tell I've been trying to go with new angles with my photos, right? I want to keep it interesting for you :)
This last one was inspired by a rather sweet and talented blooger: Paulina.
Thank you for inspiring me in getting my photography better and better, hun <3






I'm so proud of this mani - it came out just the way I imagined it and, if i may say so, without sounding cocky, it came out sooooo pretty :D

Let me know if you agree down below in the comment section and don't forget to check all the other lovely designs! :)


Hugs & Kissies,
