Antique Roses

Hello girls, I have an antique rose mani for you today. Its not a mystery that stamping manis make me a quarter as excited or happy as freehand painted nails. But some like this one manages to appeal with its charm and elegance.

Antique and classy work does sway my heart. There is a sense of stillness and serenity in them. Fun Lacquer Superhero suited aptly to build on the mani, what can beat the richness brown gold holo?

Sharing some swatches of Fun Lacquer Superhero. I wore them on their own and then did this nailart after 2 days. Good staying power, I must stay.

The prime inspiration for this mani was this Victorian looking antique rose image in AP 05- Stripe Revolution from their limited edition set that can be bought here. This one of my favourite BPS plates or any plate in general I guess. I intend to use each image from this, they are fabulous.

I did a stamping decal with El Corazon Kaleidoscope Gold and Sally Hansen Teeny Bikini. Then finished the mani with HK Girl Top Coat.

I hope…

Taupe and Coral Florals

Hi Girls, I have relatively different mani to share today. On its own it may look rustically pretty. However, the spoiler is that it is poor man’s copy of an amazing mani done by Lou from Urban Nail Lacquer.

I so adore her creativity and impeccable execution. I had a hazy memory of this mani and I made it out of that faint memory.

I was intrigued by the dusty gloomy taupe and grey and phunk of the bright coral stamped in gold. I hope you get the feel too.

The taupe polish is from Nails brand which I picked from Malaysia, Nkyaa Watermelon Sorbet and El Corazon Kaleidoscopic Gold. I used MDU Dark Grey to sponge the tips and edges of the nail.

The stamping plate BP A01 Flower Tango is from their LE Set which can be bought here.
