Pink Rose Nail Art

Have you ever tried a polish you just really hate? That's what happened to me last night.  I spent ages waiting for my PVA glue base to dry and then I thought I'd try Nails Inc Richmond.  I hoped I could build up the colour but nope, even with 3 coats it was sheer.  Really not my sort of thing at all.  Some people might like it but I like my opaque colours! I was so uninspired and I didn't have time to take it off and start again.  I added a coat of Nails Inc Electric Lane but still hated it! So I quickly got out my acrylic paints and painted all over it.  Haha! I went a bit overboard but at least it isn't boring now!

These are so pretty! (:  I love floral designs! I really like the base colour too. I  know what you mean with building the layers up though it takes forever with light colours! lol

That just beautiful painting, Char!! The flower looks so sweet, plus the details are great!!  Ah I also want to try some acrylic paints on my nails, but I'm afraid how to remove it. Haha.. Have you ever painting something? But not on your nails, paint like your mom. I'm just curious bcuz your painting is above average :D xx

Aww thank you CC! No I've never painted in my life before attempting my first rose nails a few weeks ago! Don't worry about removing the acrylic paint, it's easier to remove than nail polish as it's water base.  In fact you can wash it off if you go wrong.  What I tend to do is do my base coat in polish, then seal it with a topcoat, then do my acrylic design and then topcoat that once it's dry. xx

you mean that beautiful rose nails was your first paint in your whole life? OMG!! Char, I think you were born as a genius!! Seriously!! :D
Hm.. Ok, I'll try the acrylic paint someday . It looks fun to do!! Hehe.. Thanks for the advice, Char :) xx

hehe aww thank you CC :) Yes, definitely try! You can get sets of acrylic paints really cheap! Just be warned they dry out quite quick when you're using them, so make sure you always shut the lid and also you can spray water on the bits you've poured out and keep a jar of water to wash your brushes out as you're using them.  You'll find them so much easier than nail varnish as they mix well and aren't all gloopy xx

OOOOOOoh I do like the bottom right picture of Electric Lane over Richmond, that was the one picture my eye kept going back to.  I have CG Fairy Dust and some nudey pinks, I'm going to try that pairing at some point soon.  Fab flowers too!

Thanks Emma and Joanne :)
Yes electric lane looks so pretty over lighter colours.  If this polish wasn't so similar to my skin tone I'd probably like it more.  Really wasn't me though xx

Totally know what you mean I'm not keen on sheer polish either, though you've made yours into something gorgeous!x

Oh, this is gorgeous! Shame you were disappointed with the polish. I tried Models Own's Snow White today, which left me fuming... Too thick and difficult to apply. It's never nice when you realise you've wasted your money :( x
