Nail Polishes and Materials Used:

  • Base Pink – KIT Playas de Arena
  • Light Pink – OPI Pinking of You
  • Dark Pink – KIT First Kiss
  • Light Green – Etude House #CGR701
  • Dark Green – Essie Sew Psyched
  • Top Coat – Seche Vite
  • Gold chain beads and gold studs

First, I used a dotting tool to put down some big splotches of Pinking of You. Then I used a smaller dotting tool to outline the rose petals using First Kiss. To paint the leaves, I used a Warhammer model painting brush to make a teardrop shape with CGR701. Lastly, I used a mini dotting tool to add shading to the leaves with Sew Psyched. And voila~ vintage rose nails! Then I stuck some gold studs and chain on for extra decoration.

This set is available on my Etsy store. Thanks for reading!

31 Day Challenge: Day 2 (Orange)

Hello everyone! Day 2 of this challenge is Orange. I’m gonna be breaking out the falsies for these since there’s noooo way that I’ll subject my nails to a daily acetone bath, haha. Behold…fizzy orange drink nails!

Nail Polishes Used:

  • Essie Pure Pearlfection
  • Etude House OR201
  • SH French White

These photos aren’t so great but I tried my best.
First, I painted 1 coat of OR201, and then layered Pure Pearlfection on top. I’m convinced that Pure Pearlfection looks good on everything! Then I used a dotting tool to add the ‘fizz’ to the tips, and added some extra orange dots with a smaller dotting tool. While the polish was still wet, I sliced some cute fruit fimo canes and stuck them on. Maybe not the most practical look ever, but it’s still cute!

Thanks for reading!
