Summer roses

Hey guys ! I've got a design I did a couple of months back for you today, but I decided to keep posting in the Summer theme, even though when I did these nails the weather was rather bad !

This design was my first attempt at doing anything that remotely looked like roses, and without using my trusty nail art pens for detailing. I did this whole design using just a plain nail art brush, which I have to admit is not my favourite technique for nail art. I like how the design turned out, it was just doing it that annoyed me I guess !

So the colours I used for this design were P2 Hug Me! for the base colour, I really like the darkish yellowy colour, plus it's a proper creme polish which I think is great for a yellow ! For the roses I used OPI Sparrow Me the Drama, OPI Strawberry Margarita and OPI Dim Sum Plum, then I used OPI Jade is the New Black for the leaves.

And there we are for another day of posting ! Hope you like the design, are you getting into the groove of summery manicures at the moment ?

PS : Please excuse the pitiful ring finger, it snapped off just before I did this manicure !


  1. Cute little roses :) I can't get into the flow of summer manis as were I live, as it's contantly pouring... :(

    1. Aww that's too bad ! Summer manis rule !

  2. Your nail designs are all amazing! I absolutely love these summery floral nails. I wish I had the patience to do mine! xo
