Easter Roses!

I wanted to do an Easter mani, but I didn't want to go all out with bunnies & eggs & the lot. So I went with something still season-appropriate but less holiday-themed: roses!

The base is China Glaze Refresh-mint. I hadn't used in in a long time, and I think I'd forgotten just how pretty it is! It's not the easiest in terms of application, but worth it. The roses are a generic white (Confetti brand, I think?) and Essie Your Hut or Mine. I just put two little dots right next to each other and swirled them together using a bobby pin (as I don't have a dotting tool). Then the leaves are acrylic paint, done with a tiny striper brush.

One of my uncles-in-law actually pointed them out and said they looked lovely! Then he said, "My daughter had to have the Hunger Games polishes... I ended up buying her two of them!" I laughed and said, "Yeah, my mom bought me all 12..." Now his daughter hates me forever, I think, but I don't care because someone noticed my nails! That's all I ever want from life, really. :)
