Orange Roses and Polka Dots

I thought I’d have another go at a roses and polka dots combination, and was inspired by a manicure I saw on Pinterest (see below) to change my roses a little and have them grouped together.

I love this combination of colours; it’s so bright and summery.

The polka dot nails have 3 coats of Rimmel Sun Downer, which is an orangey red. Then the dots are done using Sinful Colors Snow Me White.

For the roses, I started with a white base, then added blobs of 17 Orange Soda, which is a light orange colour. I then added the detail using Rimmel Sun Downer and painted the leaves in Barry M Spring Green, and their highlights in the same polish, but lightened with some white.

I was pleased with the level of detail I managed to achieve, but my top coat has spread it out a little. I guess I should use acrylic paint if I want to maintain the integrity of the original artwork. But as ever, from a distance they looked great.
