Striped Vintage Rose Nail Art

Today I have some awesome vintage roses nail art to show you.  It was actually inspired by a scarf I have but unfortunately I don’t have a picture.

The roses are the same as the ones I did in my older vintage rose nail art post which you can see HERE. The only difference is that I have added a striped background using striping tape. 

Lets take a look at the picture…

Polishes I used:
Duri Rejuvacote
Essie 3in1 Base
Barry M Matte White
Wet n Wild Ink Well
Barry M Bright Pink
Barry M Blood Orange (detail on roses)
Catrice Rambo No. 5
Sally Hansen Lickety Split Lime
Seche Vite

I also used:
Striping Tape
Dotting Tool
Thin Nail Art Brush

For the striped I first painting the white polish, letting it dry, then adding the striping tape and painting over it with the black polish. When I finished I peeled away the striping tape and there you have perfectly done stripes. 
For the roses I added pink dots the size I wanted the roses and spaced them out how  wanted. I then used a thin small bristle nail art brush to add details in white and red.
 For the leaves I had to mix Rambo No.5 and Lickety Split Lime to achieve the colour I wanted. 

I love how it turned out and actually wore this for 3 days which is shocker as I struggle wear a mani for a full day.

Let me know what you think!
And thanks for reading!!

P.S. apologies for the dry cuticles (lazy day) and not so great lighting... dunno what happened here.
