Hello Roses, How are you? I hope blossoming and in pink of health. Today’s nail art isn’t a direct recreation but much more of inspiration. I have mentioned in my previous post of how I am fan of Annabel’s (IG: Followthatway) floral nail arts. And she is especially amazing at roses. After lot of attempts I think I am finally reaching near.
She is excellent in pairing flowers seamlessly with any print/pattern/background. And in this nail art I have tried to do something similar. I watched her IG video of roses over and over again, endlessly to see how she does the ‘Rose Magic’. And finally I think I landed somewhere near (Optimistic assumption!)
She did amazing pairing of roses over a black-white stripe base, which got stuck in my mind. It looked awesome. I really wanted some similar fabric print and feel for the base. So I tried getting roses on plaid background .Not sure, if it was a wise call but that’s what I wanted.
I used Zoya Lake from their Whisper 2016 Collection. I wanted a serene and calm base. The stamping is with an Ali Express plate and Konad special black. I used a clear stamper from BornPretty to see the exact placement of the plaids. The brushes I used are also from BPS and were provided for review. But I am recommending them honestly. They are so worth. You can buy them here and here (Use coupon code HQBQ10 to get 10% off)
The challenge was drawing small roses that looked pretty much like perfect Annabel roses in correct directions. And lot of practice and video watching paid off. I think I almost nailed the roses. Not only did my flowers looked like rose but also the growth of the rose had direction, like whether it is creeping down or pointing up. I hope you are getting what I am saying.
Everything was then sealed with a matte top coat because I wanted it to look like fabric print, remember? Initially I could barely manage to capture the details in my lighthouse. But the next morning I got very good shots in daylight in the garden. Nature above all!!
