Nail Art: Mattified Dots and Roses

Hello gentle readers.

Today I am sharing mattified dots and roses in bright pinks and yellow.

The base colours are OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips and Orly Lemonade on my ring nail. Dots are OPI Pink Friday, Orly Lemonade and China Glaze Snow. Roses are hand painted in Kiss Me On My Tulips, Pink Friday, China Glaze Snow, leaves are China Glaze Holly Day, Budding Romance and Gaga For Green. The whole thing is topped with Orly Matte Top.




Not some of my best roses... They were kind of blobby. And the leaves were way too big. Oh well. No one could ever accuse me of being Rembrandt. And it's just nails. Just for fun.

Sadly, this mani only lasted a couple of days. I ended up chipping it pretty badly in a cleaning jag. Ah well. I have the picture to remind me of it.

So, matte seems to be making a resurgence in popularity. Are you embracing the trend? I resisted for a long time but every once in a while, I kind of enjoy the look.

Thank you so much for popping in and reading. Have a great day and may your polish never bubble.

  7. Aww, thank you so much! The roses are super easy to do. No promises, as I kind of suck at tutorials but I will try to put a tutorial together, if you would like one. Let me know. :)
