Nail Art Week: A Rose Is A Rose with Inocos Rosa

I'm sooooooo in love with today's nails!
I went with Inocos Rosa - you can check its swatches here - and I couldn't be any happier with the outcome.

First of all, this wouldn't have been possible without the awesome nail art tutorials by Martina, from Pink Flying Cow.
Do check her out and subscribe: totally worth it!

This girl is an artist and I love her colourful, bold nail designs and her very step-by-step, detailed tutorials. Click here to see the one that inspired and helped me with this NOTD.




Ta-da!
You've got to admit it looks good ;)




I started with two coats of Inocos Rosa on all nails but my ring finger.




On my ring finger I applied two coats of my current go-to white polish: Inocos Pipoca em Viagem.
I really wanted the rose colour to pop! :)




I then went and did some stripes with Flormar Nail Art NA01.
And it seems to me I've spent too long without making freehand stripes, because these didn't come out as one of my best ones. But oh well...





To compensate for the wonky stripes, I managed a gorgeous rose on my accent nail, using acrylic paints.





This will be one of my favourite designs for a long time and I'm proud I managed to do justice to Martina's design :)


Excuse the photo spam, but I really did like this one a lot! Hope you did, too - let me know :)
Wishing you a sweet, happy Easter, luvs.

Hugs & Kissies,
