essie shades

How I do roses. It looks like there are two pictures of plain orange blobs, but the second one actually has a touch of a darker orange in the upper middle area. I find a little shading/color variation makes them look nicer. Colors used: OPI My Vampire Wears Buff (background cream), Zoya Arizona (orange), Zoya Thandie (darker orange; you could easily just mix a slightly darker shade yourself), Essie Navigate Her (green), and plain black acrylic paint for the lines.

This one ended up as a candy-colored, 70s pattern, but you can see some different ways I’ve used this kind of rose here and here.

Well Hello you pretty polish!

Once again a gorgeous shade from Essie, let me show you Truth or Flare. It is gorgeous on its own of course but I’ve just add a tiny bit of golden dust on the free edge of my nails, you can see the dust behind my hand (from Melkior).

Love it! :)
