Picture Tutorial: Vintage Rose Nail Art

Hey there!
Today I have a new piece of nail art for you guys, a vintage rose design! And I did a picture tutorial to show you how to do it! Hope you like it!
That's what you need:
- a base coat (mine is Essence Pro White French)
- a background color of your choice (I used China Glaze - For Audrey)
- a bright pink polish (I used RdL - 102)
- a darker pink polish (I used Essie - Exotic Liras)
- a dark green polish (I used OPI - Jade Is The New Black)
- a tool, like a toothpick or a dotting tool (Essence Nail Art Stylist)
- a top coat (mine is Essence Sealing Top Coat)
That's how to do it:
1. Use your base coat on all your nails to protect them.
2. Paint your whole nails with the background color of your choice, use as many coats as needed.
3. Take the pink polish, and do random medium-sized dots on your nails. For that you can use the normal polish brush.
4. Pick up the darker pink with a  toothpick and draw inner parts of the rose, so it looks more real. You want to do one dot/swirl in the middle, and about two on the sides. Place them randomly and don't make them too even, a rose is never perfect.
5. Now it's time for the leaves. I just created them with a dotting tool and dark green polish.
6. Seal your design with a top coat of your choice.
And that's it! It's really easy, it's a little vintage, and it's fun! I did it after the video by Cutepolish *click*.
I hope you liked it!
Until next time,
xoxo, Misch

  3. @marox: if you really want to, you can make it :) just practice, for example on a nail wheel! that way you don't mess up your nails, and you can try it like 5 times in a row ;)
