Simple Roses

Hello everyone! This is a manicure I did a couple of days ago when we had a lovely bit of sunshine here in the UK.


It is based on a tutorial that CutePolish did which I watched a long time ago but never got around to do. Some things are a little bit different to hers though. 



I used NYC – Mint Macaroon for the base then for the actual flowers I used a dotting tool dipped into 3 different shades of pink (NYC – Greenwich Village, NYC – Uptown and a random Accessorize pale pink) then onto the nail to create a sort of marbled effect. The leaves which could have been slightly neater were done with Revlon – Emerald City which is a matte but then of course turned shiny with the addition of topcoat.



I am quite pleased with how this turned out even though they don’t actually look like roses close up. They look nice from a distance though hence why I wore them for a couple of days! Thank you for reading!
