The Vintage Rose Nail Art

Hi, I am extremely late today for my entry to the 3o Day Nail Art Challenge and the theme today is Pink. Now, this color naturally brings in a million feminine, soft , cute, classic and ageless ideas for nail art designs (practically the design of anything and everything for a girl). I was super excited for this day in particular. Although I had no ideas floating in my mind, I was looking forward for this. And as feared, I thought it over so many times that was out of ideas. Because I have a soft corner for pink (all girls have 😛 ), I wanted to utilize this opportunity to the fullest.

But I am not sure if I did my best because inspite of today being a holiday, I had an awfully busy day.But I am just happy that I finally did the ‘Vintage Rose’ nail art. I had been planning this for ages but never tried this mainly because I was afraid of failing at this simple nail art. Anyways, not that this came out as a big hit but I am happy with the outcome and the attempt :).

  • Bright Pink Nail Paint for the body of the rose

How to do the Vintage Rose

  1. Clean,cut and file your nails. paint them pale pink.
  2. Make random patches of the bright pink polish on all nail. Just touch the nail paint brush on the nails enough to make a rough circle.
  3. With a nail art pen or fine brush make a dot on the pink patch. Then start making semicircles around the dot in layers and your rose is done.
  4. Make few leaves around the rose with green acrylic paint or nail paint.
  5. Outline the leaves with nail art pen or fine brush if you wish to.
  6. Finish with a top coat.

I hope you are able to do this easily with better perfection. The best thing about this nail art is that it doesn’t require symmetry or same patterns, just similar patterns :). Let me know if you liked my first attempt with vintage rose.

PS : Because the rose is neon colored pink, the pictures are tricky.Apologies 🙁 I have updated few pictures today again to do justice to the nail art. But the nail art is way prettier than pictures, believe me :P.

      Thanks for the compliment dear.
      A nail art pen is a small nail paint squeezy kinna thing. They have a detailing brush for application and a very fine nozzle from which nail paint comes out on squeezing. They are easily available, actually one of the first nail art tools I could find in an ordonary beauty shop even 3 yrs back, for rest of the tools till today u either need to go to spl shops or mainly order online. They are cheap and come handy for any designs. They cost Rs 30-40. Just see my nail art ‘Bright Sunny Day’, I have put in my picture of Items used. This should help. I was planning to do a post for introduction to various nail art tools but I am missing that due to my busy schedule.Let me know if u are still left puzzled with the ‘Nail Art pen’. You could google them also.
