This is another go at a skittlette mani, because I have so many accept nails! I really liked the silver roses from the original mani, but I wanted to try a more traditional red rose as well. Initially I thought of finally using my OPI color paints to fill in the colors, but they're kind of bright and happy looking and I was aiming for something more darker and classy. Did I get close enough?
Decals are pretty simple to make - stamp, wait till it's dry (10ish mins is usually good enough), fill in with color, wait to dry, and topcoat. I used Wet n Wild Clear Nail Protector, it seems to be one that's often used and it definitely does the job well. After the final step is dry, peel it off and position onto the nail. Here's where the decal can be trimmed if your nails are on the shorter side. Or even if you only want to use one accent rose, just cut it out! I clean up the extra around my nail with scissors and then a little brush with acetone.
Hope you enjoyed my floral look. I'm leaning towards the silver roses, they just stand out and look better. Maybe I'll get ambitious and do a full mani with them, not just accents!
