Gold glitter with pink roses nail art
Hey there! I painted some freehand pink roses to match this delicious gold holo glitter polish! The middle rose should have been a little bit bigger I think, half of it is obscured by the curve of my nails. Oh well, still pretty! Click to see more, plus a video tutorial!
Digital Nails Solar Flare. It is to DROOL OVER! I never gave gold glitter a second glance until I met this little beauty over here. I used her in my Christmas mani and I'm using her again now. I did always like the combination of gold and pink, I think it's very feminine, so I gave it a go!
The roses are freehand with acrylic paint and my Basic One Gold detail brush from Christrio Scotland and I topped it all with HK Girl top coat from Glisten & Glow (I buy this from Hypnotic Polish).
You now have a nice rough surface to paint on! Take your black acrylic paint and paint the outlines of a rose. Just go petal by petal, I worked my way inwards from the outer petals but maybe you prefer starting with the inner rose bud and then going outwards. After you've done the outline, fill it in with pink (or red, if that's more your thing). Keep the black lines visible but be sure to fill up the whole shape.
Retrace your black lines to finish up the rose and make it look nice. Then just add a top coat and you're done!
