I played it safe with my first entry for this months theme of Cyws “Mottomonat” – “In Bloom!” – but I also wanted to try something that would take me a bit out of my comfort zone. So I present to you – *drumroll* 😉 – my first ever free-handed roses:
After two coats of “aloha dreams” (which didn’t look THAT neon-bright in the bottle O_O ) I added two large blobs of “free hugs” on each nail and used “ultimate pink” and my smallest brush for shading. This lacked something sparkling, so I dabbed on a bit of gold glitter to give the illusion of pollen (well, at least in my mind 😉 ).
Base coat: essie Nourish Me
Main color: p2 color victim 999 aloha dreams (two coats)
Roses: essence colour & go 106 free hugs and essence colour & go 108 ultimate pink
Glitter: L.A. Colors 190 Gold Sparkle
Top coat: Seche Vite
