Freehand roses nail art for Valentine's Day

Hola!! With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I was in the mood for something lovely and romantic. Even though I'm single, I luv it! So come check out my nail art design, and ofcourse there's a video tutorial as well :D Click to see more!

I used OPI Sparrow Me The Drama and Casino Royale for the background gradient. I made it look a bit splotchy for artistic purposes, and the glitter is China Glaze I'm Not Lion. It's one of my favorite glitter polishes for this kind of nail art but I had hoped that the gold would pop a bit more against the pink. Also, it's very textured to paint on so I added a coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl top coat on top and I buy this from Hypnotic Polish.

These tiny tiny roses aren't stickers, they're freehand! I'm kind of amazed at them myself! They're really easy to make though, roses might just be the easiest flowers to paint, especially on a tiny scale.
All you have to do is paint a blob of light pink. Then add some lines of a magenta color and fill in some of the light spots with a color that's in between the two. I really hope my video explains it better than I can in words!

Edit: a couple of smart people told me that the video was way too fast to follow and I agree, so I slowed it down for you guys. Hopefully this makes it easier to understand and recreate:
