Vintage Tumblr Themes
My obsession right now is nails. I'm always looking up new designs to try and buying new polishes. I just want to share what I find with other people who love doing their nails as much as I do! Don't forget to follow to get updates on great polishes, designs and tutorials! :D

Summer Roses!

I found these on Pinterest and absolutely love them! They’re so much fun and really summery! They would be really great for spring too, if you use pastel colors instead of such bold ones. But for this time of year, I went with bold!

Polishes used…

  • French White Tip by New York Color #134
  • Soft Seduction by Anise #N39
  • Bright Pink by LA Colors #BLQ388
  • Dutch ‘Ya Just Love OPI by OPI #NL H55
  • Bright Green by LA Colors Art Deco #NA918
  • Top Coat by OPI #NT T30

To be honest, this is much easier than it looks. Here is a quick step by step for you, but I’m sure you can figure it out by looking at the pictures.

  1. Apply 3-4 coats of French White.
  2. Using a toothpick or dotting tool, place three dots on each nail using one of each of your three rose colors.
  3. Still using the dotting tool or toothpick, outline the dots with three curved lines around each dot. Make sure the lines do not connect with one another. You want your petals to be separate.
  4. Do the same thing again, but make the lines bigger for the outer petals. Depending on how big you want your rose to be, you can do more or less layers.
  5. Draw green leaves between the flowers.
  6. Protect with Top Coat and let dry completely.

*Tip: Make sure your flowers are dry before adding top coat. I know this sounds like a no brainer, but there are so many times that I mess up my nails by adding the top coat too soon and smearing the polish!

Enjoy!
