Roses? For Me? You're Too Kind!

Despite my love for nail art, especially very basic dotted floral nail art, I have never given rose nail art a shot. Today was my day.

I'm not sure that I succeeded... but it's a decent first attempt. Also-- I am trying to figure out which photo presentation of my nails works better. Do you like photo 1 or photo 2? Most of my photos are done with photo 1's style... but I recently received a suggestion that photo 2's style looked better. What do you think?

For this look I used:
  • 1 coat of CND Stickey base coat
  • 2 coats of Island Girl Waikiki Sunset polish
  • Acrylic craft paint and a dotting tool for the roses
  • 1 coat of Looks Wet top coat
I'm not usually such a big fan of hexagonal glitter polishes, especially by themselves, but this one is pretty nice. I usually like to layer a color like this over a light blue or black. Hexagonal glitters just usually drive me crazy because I'm obsessed with having polish neat and precise... and you can never really control where the little glitters go... but this one is pretty fun. I actually picked up this polish while I was in Kauai this past June. I'm not sure where to get it on the mainland... but it's super fun and goes on with a nice thin application. Two thumbs up to Island Girl!


  1. love it, and i dont think it matters if your fingers are close together or not, same thing basically. =)
