A Rose By Any Other Name...

Hi guys, look at me posting twice in the one week! ha ha. Hope you are all having a good week so far. Another 4 day week for me this week, I had yesterday off for working Monday which was quite good. Still feels like the longest week though. Typical. I won't want to go back to a 5 day week after 2 weeks of this.

Anyway, was totally stuck for a mani the other day when I spotted a lovely pink polish and thought since it was Wednesday I should do pink nails. So I went for roses for a lovely springtime look.

Here is what I used:

No7 So Smooth Base Coat*
OPI If You Moust You Moust*
Konad Special White(?)
Max Factor Extra Glitter*
Seche Vite
BM-323

So I wasn't sure at first but it's really grown on me, which is the case with most of my mani's. I think the glitter really brought it together, which is quite hard to see in the pictures so you'll just have to trust me.

edit - I have entered this into the amateur nail art contest for April over at The Crumpet, which is the first contest I have ever entered.

  1. Isn't it funny how you don't like them when you first do them but later you do... I feel like that most of the time with every mani! :) Roses are not my thing at all.. but I am loving that pink! Plus I am super jealous with how good your nails/cuticles look :P

    1. Thanks Loz, I'm glad it's not just me who feels like that.

      I am amazed you think that about my cuticles as its been something I've been thinking a lot about lately. I don't ever even touch my cuticles and don't even have any idea how they should look.
