Pink Rose

I think I'm seriously feeling Valentine's day creep up on me minute by minute. I know, I KNOW, it's still only January... but I just am loving pinks/reds/hearts/flowers... all the mushy-lovey stuff.

For this mani, I followed these steps:
  1. Apply 1 coat of CND Stickey base coat
  2. Apply 2 coats of OPI That's Hot! Pink
  3. On the accent nail, using a dotting tool and acrylic black craft paint, make 3 big swoops and fill them in. It creates a ruffle shape on the nail.
  4. Using a striper brush and white acrylic craft paint, begin painting a rose.
    • Start with small, curved lines. Begin making the lines larger as they curve around each other.
  5. Add a couple dots with a dotting tool on the outside of the rose.
  6. Finish with 2 coats of CND Super Shiney top coat.
I'm still working on my roses... they're just not there yet... but I like them! Today I'm wearing a bright pink/black/green scarf and they match perfectly! Yayy for matchy matchy!



  1. Cute! That's a great pink. And the rose, you say it's not the beset, but I like I it!!

  2. So cute!
    I think I need to buy some acrylic paint now.
    Is it easier than nail polish to make designs?

  3. Love love love this! This has made me so excited for Valentines Day!

  4. This is super cute! And so simple. I absolutely love it :-)

  5. You may think you're not great at roses, but I can't tell what else you need. Looks fantastic

  6. Very cute! I love Valentines day and am totally digging this mani! I just wish I was as talented as you!
