NAILS | Purple Roses #CBBxManiMonday

I wanted to make up for my laziness the last month and finally sit down and commit to some hand-drawn nail art so even though it was midnight and I was still reeling from the last night's Game of Thrones episode. *SPOILER ALERT* I was rooting for Daenerys, but after what she decided to do with King's Landing, it was evident that her reign would have been like that of a dictator as she probably would have slaughtered everyone in the North for not bowing down to her, but I am sad that her end was written this way. I was sad that Jaime made the decision to basically commit suicide by leaving Winterfell and I still don't know what his purpose was at King's Landing, but that was another ending that left me feeling unfulfilled. You know what DID have me feeling good last night though were these nails!

I have always wanted to try my hand and rose nail art and since I'm not the best at freehand, artistic things, I looked at countless photos of roses and sort of just figured that circles and circular squiggles were the way to go! I started off with two coats of CND Vinylux Taffy* and then using my largest dotting tool, dotted on some roundish dots using CND Vinylux Gummi*. Using a striper brush, I painted some half moon lines using CND Vinylux Dreamcatcher* to make the rough outline of rose petals. For the leaves, I used green acrylic paint and then mixed a little bit of white in to give the leaves a bit of extra dimension.

I sealed everything in with the CND Weekly Top Coat (of course!) and then went to bed!
