Roses are red, Violets are blue...

Valentine's Day shall soon be upon us, so I thought I would share my latest piece of nail art, which falls nicely in the theme of love. What better way to say those three little words everyone loves to hear, with roses...

The base coat is a beautiful lilac colour from Ciate called 'Sugar Plum', which I applied three coats to get an opaque look. As always I topped off it off with a coat of Seche Vite to help with the drying process.

To create the roses I used a large dotting tool and place random blobs using Barry M's gelly hi shine polish in 'Pomegranate'.

To add a bit of dimension, I uses a small dotting tool to create some swirls in the roses. The contrasting colour I used was 'Instyle Coral' by Rimmel London, which I think go really well together and also compliments the lilac base coat. To finish off the roses I used the small dotting tool to add a leaf to each rose in a dark bottle green called 'Burton Mews' by Nails Inc. The topped off with one more coat of Seche Vite's fast drying top coat.

Let me know what you think?

Until next time...
