Oh hi. Don’t mind me while I sneak in one more post. The ABC Challenge was supposed to start back up again last Friday, but it doesn’t seem like anyone has posted their manicures yet (which makes me feel so much better about being late with mine haha.) I’m not sure if the challenge is still on hold after the 31 Day Challenge, but I had this look done and it fit the theme so I figured I’d go for it. Get ready for rebellion. Roses. And rainbows. Onto the nails!
Here is what I used:
If you haven’t guessed it by now, this post is all about the letter “R!” I couldn’t find a brand in my collection that started with that letter, so I pulled out Zoya’s Rebel instead. On top of that I added a holo topcoat for the rainbow and some rose nail art! SO. MANY. R’s.
- Start by applying two (or three) coats of Rebel.
- Apply a layer of Fairy Godmother (previously reviewed here) over that.
- Then using acrylic paint and a detail brush to add on the roses. I started by painting on the green vines, adding the yellow rose base, go back in to add the rose details, and then finish with the leaves.
- Clean up.
- Finish with a layer of Glossy Glam.
I’m realizing now as I’m writing this, that I don’t think roses grow on vines. Do they? I’m awful at keeping plants/flowers alive, so my knowledge of these things doesn’t exist. But! Even if they don’t grow on vines, I’m still happy with how these turned out! I love the way Fairy Godmother looks layered over Rebel, and come on, it’s a floral print. Flowers are always a win to me. But, what do you guys think?
As always, thank you all so much for reading and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day! 😀
