NOTD : Skyfall Roses

Happy first day of the year everyone (seeing as I already wished you all happy New Year in yesterday's post) ! I finally sat down with my OPI Skyfall collection this afternoon and did a manicure using a couple of the colours ! I have to say, I really do love it ! So here we go for my first nail art of 2013 !

The only colour I used in this design that wasn't from the Skyfall collection was the base colour. It's a shame there weren't any light/neutral colours in this collection, I know it's a Christmas-time collection but still, it'd be nice ! This design ended up taking longer than I had originally anticipated, but that was mainly because I was being fussy about the size of the leaves !

So for this nail art design, the nail varnishes I used were OPI My Very First Knockwurst for the base colour, and then for the roses I used OPI Skyfall, OPI Live and Let Die for the leaves (I love this polish !), and then my Models Own Wah Nails nail art pens in both black and white for outlining the flowers. The white was a last minute addition, as the roses weren't really showing up very well with all the dark colours, but the white really makes it pop !

And that's it for today's first post of the year ! I personally think it's a great design to start the year off with, and hopefully I'll have many more wonderful designs for you this coming year ! Also, can you believe I've actually posted two days in a row ?! I'm finally getting more time to sort out nails and blogging, but I can't guarantee whether that'll continue ! I'll try my best though, I promise !

See you all again soon everyone ! I hope you're all having a great year so far !


  1. They are very unusual, ive never seen that design been done but they look great!:)


  2. Very pretty! The colour scheme is very romantic and reminds me of old-fashioned Paris. And I agree, the addition of white really helps the roses pop! :)
