NOTD - Vintage Roses With A Touch O' Gold...


Ello ello my lovelies! How's your week going for ya?

Boy am I pooped, work has been good but busy & I for one cannot wait for the weekend & catching some down time with friends & family. I don't know about you but I'm definitely feeling the clocks changing this week, normally I'm up & at them like Speedy Gonzales in the mornings yet this week I've been more Sid the Sloth, thus I am praying for that glorious rarity..the LIE IN...this weekend *prays*

I am seriously in love with this mani design I have to share with you today, it features one of my favourite things...FLORALS....& in fact I've loved it so much I've worn it all week & pretty much co-ordinated my wardrobe around it instead of the other way round...because I'm strange like that ;) It also features one of the fab Hyper Gels that I picked up, the gorg Naked Glow.


What do you think? This design was inspired by a fabulously talented IG account I follow @lauramerino12. She has some beaut nail designs & the moment I saw this I new I had to give it a try!


I started off with that divine Models Own Hyper Gel, a range which I am looooving! I used White Light for my Valentines Dotticure Manicure a while back, here I've used Naked Glow which is a fabulous nude & applied so nicely. I of course went for my obligatory two coats.


Next I added a few splodges of dark red on to each nail, about 3 per nail using Nails Inc Chester Square & the polish brush. The great thing about rose designs is the less neat the splodges are, the better they look!


I then added a touch of green for the leaves surrounding each little rose, using a random green nail art pen. To finish off the rose I went back in with the Naked Glow for added detail using a fine nail art brush, however I think these polishes may be too thick for that sort of thing, but in the words of Mastermind, I started so I finished!


Lastly, for a bit of pretty gold goodness I applied a thin slick of topcoat before quickly adding some pretty golden balls from my nail art wheels, in bunches of three to each nail. Another thick coat of topcoat to seal it all & finito!

Hope you liked the design my lovelies! Thanks for reading as always! Have you tried the HyperGels? Are you a fan of floral prints too?

Lotsa love to ya!
