Sunday Manicure: Rose Petals

I thought it was time to try something different on my nails. My beautiful pink roses were dying, so I used the petals to create this unusual manicure. It isn't perfect, but the effect is very pretty in real life. 

I used Nails Inc Notting Hill as a base and let it dry completely. I then added a coat of Seche Vite and stuck the rose petal shape to my nails before the nail polish dried. To seal the design, I added another layer of Seche Vite. I will definitely try something similar in the future. What do you think?

  1. Such a cool idea! Very pretty :)

  2. I love this idea, much better than stick on transfers, it actually looks like what you want it too, because the flowers are real!


  3. Such a good idea!!! I'm going to find some petals too and try something similar with other flowers! Eli

  4. I love this idea. Ive seen it done before with Feathers, but never petals. Such a easy way to incorporate some nail art in!

  5. Oh this is cool! I actually saw dried flowers in a nail art shop back in Czech Republic, they were selling them in pots they selling beads and velvet fluff in x

  6. This is so pretty! I love that its actually quite subtle as i find a lot of nail art a little too out there for me!x

  7. Oh wow! I literally adore these, such an amazing idea. I really want to try the petals over a white mani! Lovely post x

  8. I've seen this idea and I think it looks great! Although I love your different twist on it :D
