My Spanish Rose

Hello There!

It seems my wish for some warmer weather came true, hooray!! This weekend has been especially beautiful and it's finally feeling like Summer :) Therefore it's time for another bright and happy manicure!

For today's nail art, I was inspired by an awesome slim Iphone 5 case by Rifle Paper Co. entitled 'Spanish Rose'. So cool.

On my pointer and pinkie nails, I used 17 (now Seventeen) 'Orange Soda' which is actually a bright light orange but my camera just freaked! On the rest of my nails, I used Barry M 'Guava' which is a tad more green than my photos show. My camera was obviously just not with it!

Using my small detail brush, I first painted the flowers in Zoya 'Rory' (shimmery pink), Barry M 'Rose Hip' (pastel pink) and 17 'Orange Soda' (light orange). I then added petal details using Essie 'The Girls Are Out' (raspberry pink) and Barry M 'Peach Melba' (pale peach).

With the same brush I painted in the leaves and stems using Barry M 'Watermelon' (dark green) and Barry M 'Key Lime' (lime green) for the details. I finished the flowers by adding China Glaze 'Stone Cold' to the centres.

On my accent nails (pointer and pinkie), I added two small aqua square gemstones (from Amazon) using a dab of topcoat. I finished it all off with Essie 'No Chips Ahead'.

I loved this manicure so much that I couldn't bare to take it off!! I ended up wearing it for nearly a week-almost unheard of for me!!

Thanks for reading!
