As you can see from the looks of THIS post, my second attempt at floral roses has proven much more sucessful! I did them on my friend Lauren first (adove) and I loved them so much that I had to have them myself too (below).

I picked up some acrylic paints at a craft shop recently as I’d heard they were much more effective and user friendly for nail art than polish. It’s true – I used a paint brush and lilac paint for the detail on the roses and it made them look much more realistic.

The base on the one above is Mint Candy Apple by Essie and the one below is a mint green colour by H&M. The base purple of the roses is Bright Purple by Barry M and the lilac & black are basic acrylic paints that you can get from most craft shops. I recommend picking some up!
