Freehand Roses

Floral Nails

Hello again :) my second post for today is my normal Saturday nails. I tried another freehand nail art, and really happy with how they look. All the practise I have been doing has really paid off, especially with my non dominant hand! No more shakes or dodgy lines lol. My inspiration for this nail art came from a book my Daughter got me for Mother's Day. A pretty floral three coloured roses nail art with gold accents.

Sally Hansen Crinoline, MUA Gold Crackle, Collection 2000 Sparkle Topcoat, Outdoor Girl Pastel Yellow, Sinful Colors Cotton Candy, Sally Hansen Blue Me Away, Beauty UK Green (from the Wild Child Collection) and Nails Inc Uptown Glamour. 
I first painted my nails with two coats of Crinoline. Then using the MUA Gold Crackle I painted half a heart shape at the edge of each nail. Even though this is a crackle polish, as I only painted a thin line, and went over it a few times, it hid the crackle effect. I used the Sparkle Topcoat to fill in the heart. Then with the pink, yellow and blue polishes made small roses randomly on each nail, with white polish and a thin detailing brush I added the details, used green to make small leaf shapes, and the Uptown Glamour to add a few gold dot.   Here is the finished design....

Even happy with my right hand, which is my Cinderella hand :)
