Tutorial: Hand-painted Roses

I’m extremely happy with how these turned out! The nice thing about roses is that they don’t have to be absolutely perfect to look gorge! Here’s the final result:

I got the inspiration from Katy Perry. I absolutely love her nails, she always has such crazy designs. See the rose mani below (top left)?

  • White: Modi
  • Red: Tip Top 958 “Corel Candy”
  • Maroon: Modi 68 “Riding Hood”
  • Pink: Modi 4 “Nude Shine Orange” (it’s in Korean, but I think that’s what it says)
  • Green:Nail Cone It Girl’s 1762 “Mint Cone”

Subtle pink mani

I was messing around with more dotting and some muted pinks. I added a bit of bling to make it a bit more edgy. I love the index finger, I tried to make a french manicure with small white, pink and gray dots. But, I think I may have ruined it with all the jewels. What do you think?

I used some Organic Farm pink and gray nail polish, nail art jewels and Konad white for this mani. I hope you like it!

Going Dotty..

I bought a new blanket for winter, I’ve been staring at the dotty design and I went a bit loopy. So, I decided to try something different and colourful. I love dotting tools because you can honestly do anything with them. This design is really bright, and surprisingly simple to do. You could even experiment with different base coats, sizes of dots and different colour combinations. What do you think? Crazy or cute?
