Pinterest Week: Vintage Roses

You all know how much I love the rose manicures that have been floating around lately. I've seen so many different ones but this has to be one of my favourites! I pinned it to my "Nail Art" board not too long ago... I'm glad to finally re-create it.

You can see my pin here and the original source here.

I started with a base of Finger Paints Black Expressionism and, using a dotting tool, I added the dots using OPI My Vampire is Buff. The flowers were created using a nail art brush and Barielle Alli's Lace Cover Up, Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro Desert Rose, OPI My Vampire is Buff, & CG Four Leaf Clover.

I added a Matte top coat because the original seemed to have some kind of wax finish to it. I liked the design either way.. below you can see the manicure topped with Essie Matte About You.
