Vintage Roses...ish

Hola! Hoy les traigo un nailart que para mí es como medio fail, pero es la primera vez que lo hago así que digamos que echando a perder se aprende jajaja. Hace poco me uní a un grupo de esmalteadictas chilenas en Facebook y todos los domingos se plantea un "desafío", el de la semana pasada era hacer un nailart con flores "vintage" y esta es mi versión. Como base usé Etienne Half Creme y las rosas fueron hechas con OPI Flower to Flower, Finger Paints Papier Maché y Essence Viva la Green, añadí además unos puntitos en dorado con Color Show Bold Gold. Para mi dedo índice usé de base Orly Gumdrop y realicé el estampado con Bold Gold y la placa BM-407.

Hi girls! I recently joined a Facebook group for local nail fanatics (locals as in, from my same country) and each Sunday we have a challenge, which is usually a technique. For the past week the challenge was doing a mani with these kind of vintage roses. It was my first time trying and, while it's far from perfect, I kinda like it.
I started with a base of a local polish, Etienne Half Creme, which is a pale pink kinda jelly polish that is opaque in 2 thick coats (but I still had to be careful not to drag the polish and end with bald spots). For the roses I used a dotting tool and a fine nailart brush and the following nail polish colors: OPI Flower to Flower (darker pink), Finger Paints Papier Maché (highlights) and Essence Viva la Green (leaves). I also added some small dots in gold with Maybelline Color Show in Bold Gold
I also did an accent nail with some stamping. As a base for my accent I used Orly Gumdrop, which is a blue-green creme that it's a bit thick and opaque in 2 coats. I waited for it to dry, while I did the roses on the rest on my nails, and then stamped using the cameo image from BM-407 (from the Create Your Own collection) and Bold Gold. Sadly my nails are super tiny, so not all the pretty details of the stamp fitted on it.

Overall I'm happy with the result, the color combination is really sweet and girly, but I hope to improve my skills on the roses for the next time. From a distance, they look cute :)

Thanks for reading, I hope you liked today's nailart.
