06/21/13 - Vintage Roses

I've been struggling for ideas for a bit, but I got it into my head that if I did a saran-wrap base with light yellow and white, then put roses on it, then perhaps it would look like that vintage-y pattern that you see sometimes. So I gave it a shot.
I actually really like it, and my mom agreed that when she saw my nails, so also thought of my initial inspiration (without me saying that's what it was.)
This was further compounded when we were shopping later and saw a bag in that kind of print. What a coincidence!
I started with Jcat - Mango, then did a saran-wrap look with Pure Ice - Super Star. Then I painted on the roses with Sinful Colors - Timbleberry and Lime Crime - Parfait Day, and finished with leaves from Kleancolor - Green Grass.
Fun and relatively simple. :)

  1. Very cute! I like doing vintage roses nails but I've never tried them with a patterned background, this looks great though.
