Old-Timey Purple Rose Wallpaper Nails for a Friend!

by - Friday, March 22, 2013

So I loved the roses from my last mani so much that when my friend came over and asked me to do her nails I proposed doing the same roses but in her favourite colour (purple). We felt they were too plain with just the roses but that putting more than one rose on the nail might be overpowering, so we decided on some dotting for the background. When it was done we thought they looked like old-timey wallpaper, hence the name. :)

(Please ignore the terrible colouring on the pictures, we did the mani at night so they were taken without any natural light/light box and look kind of yellow-y. Ugh!)

What I used for this mani:

(L to R):
Rimmel London French White Nail Tip Liner (rose details)
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in White On (base colour)
Rimmel London Lasting Finish Pro in Wild Orchid (rose base)
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Deep Purple (rose details)
China Glaze's Bizarre Blurple (centre of the rose)
Kit Nail Lacquer in Moonlight (dots)

EDIT: I totally forgot, but the leaves were also done in Sally Hansen's Mint Sprint... I forgot to include it in these pics, but you can see the bottle in my swatching post
