Dainty Rose Nails (+ Tutorial)

You cannot go wrong with dainty rose nails if you're looking for some super feminine nail art. <3 I was inspired by one of my favorite bloggers, The Little Canvas. It's been a while since I did roses! Keep reading for more photos and a nail art tutorial on how I did my roses. :)

Is it sad that I actually had a really hard time choosing which pink to you? I did this design 3 different times... Each time I kept trying out a darker pink and this is shade that I finally stopped at! xD 

I just love the nude base with the polka dots. The flowers make the perfect touch on top though!

I didn't think I was ever going to find the "right" pink but luckily Sinful Colors saved me. :)

The polishes I used are:
Nina Ultra Pro French Pink (base)
Seche Porcelien II (white polka dots)
Sinful Colors Cream Pink (pink roses)
+ black and green acrylic paint

Ah, here is my rose nail art tutorial! The polka dot step is optional if you don't like them, but I wouldn't dare go without them for these dainty roses. :) I just used a mechanical pencil to make the white dots, the pink polish brush to make the pink blob, and then my brushes from the BPS paint the flower outlines and leaves. 

YASSS. The thumb shot. 

And just for kicks and giggles, I decided to matte this design with OPI's Matte Top Coat. :) 

Will you be trying this nail art tutorial out?
