Hi everyone. It’s this time again, when I team up with another nail art lover to do a mani swap. This time it’s the very talented Lisa from the Polished Elegance. I have been following her blog since the very beginning and watching her progress. Her manis are so classy, elegant and sophisticated! I don’t know how she does it that her nails are consistently perfect :) If you like beautiful, elegant manis, follow her blog and you will be amazed at the perfection she posts!
For today’s twin mani, I chose to recreate one of Lisa’s older designs that she made for the 31DC challenge. She was inspired by Glitter Tips and I just love how simple this roses nail art is! I just had to recreate it. I had to… You understand my love for flowers?
Look at Lisa’s pretty nails! I have to insert a little disclaimer here: I didn’t have any of the colors she used for this mani, so I went ahead and did something similar, but not exact :)
With all the pink polishes that I have, I don’t know why I used a purple base… It is Essence Hello Marshmallow! Such a cute name :) The polish has a slight shimmer in it and looks beautiful in the sun. The gold outline is made with Catrice Goldbusters and I made it using my thin nail art brush. Man, the lines are not perfect, as I would like, but I had to work fast, because that gold polish was drying fast! Plus, I made this mani at 3 A.M. so please forgive any imperfections haha!
The pretty roses nail art is made with Gosh Bubble Gum and W7 Pink Paradise. For the leaves I used Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet and China Glaze Too Yacht To Handle for the details. I love how the turned out and the contrast between the turquoise and pink.
What do you think of this cute roses nail art? I really love teaming up with other ladies and recreate their designs :) It’s so much fun! And sometimes not as easy as we initially thought. Check out Lisa’s post, because she recreated one of my designs! Also, follow Polished Elegance for more of the classy and elegant manis.
Check out the collage below with all four designs :) I think she did such an amazing job with the tulips and I love the pastel look! It’s so Springy.
