Roses on Mint Apple by Sinful Colors
I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I have had a very busy Saturday but a restful evening here at home.
Day 21 of the 31 day challenge is “Inspired by a color”. I attended an event today which required me to wear something green so I wanted to come up with some nails to go with my shirt and I think that totally falls under the “inspired by a color” category. Don’t you?
Aren’t they pretty? I’ve done a few floral looks with the same technique
but this is the first time I’ve actually used red for the roses. I think I’m getting better at it too now that I’ve got leaves and everything. Check out similar looks here , here and here.
I started with two coats of Sinful Colors Mint Apple (LOVE!). Then I used my dotting tool and Caronia Tea Rose for the red blobs that would become roses. Then I added swirls on the roses with Caronia Baby Pink. I mixed black and dark green together for the leaves and finally added some dots of Caronia Crystal to finish it off. These pictures are without topcoat as my topcoat killed my design the night before with more bubbles than a fizzy drink. 🙁
Well, that’s it for me. Thanks for reading.
Beautiful design! Thanks for sharing!

Oh thank you Rachel. I’ve done quite a few roses and I think I am getting better each time. 🙂 Practice makes perfect they say.
