Simple Roses Nail Art

First I applied my base coat and my base colour, Ciate Beach Melba, which I got in the July GlossyBox. It was a bit sheer so I used around 4 coats of this.

Next, I used OPI Flower-To-Flower to make different sized dots on my nails.

Then I used Barry M Mint Green for the leaves. I just used the nail polish brush to do all this, the trick is to make sure you've got almost nothing on the brush, you can always go back and add a bit more if there's not enough colour, but you don't want it accidentally running down the brush and ruining the design.

Next I used Andrea Fulerton Stripe & Sparkle in Katleen to add detail to the roses. I just randomly swiped the polish along the pink bits, nothing precise about it at all, then went back in with Flower-To-Flower to tidy up and sort out any bits that might have had too much white.

Finally I used Seche Vite as my top coat.


  1. This is so cite and summery, I love it! :)
    Also, I passed on two awards to you, you can read about them in my blog.

  2. They look absolutely amazing. I will never understand how you can have the kind of patience to do this. It is incredible:)
