I decided to paint pink roses with a vintage feel. I have done something similar a few months back that I called Bunch of Flowers. Usually, I don't really post nail art that I have previously done. But I'm starting to think that I should because I think different color palettes will yield different results to the same nail design. Do you think so, too?
First, let me show you the outcome:
One thing I really like about painting roses like this is that strokes don't really need to be perfect. Random squiggles does the trick!
I used 2 coats of Dazzle Dry Anticipation as the gray background. Perhaps you'd prefer a darker shade of gray so that the pink roses would really pop. As for me, I decided to use a medium gray as base to achieve a more dainty feel.
I hand painted this nail design using acrylic paints and a detailing nail art brush. Initially, I wanted to paint the roses with different shades of pink. But because the laziness kicked in, I contented myself with one shade. I think this would look more beautiful with different pink hues.
If you're looking for a Valentine's nail art idea is subtle and classy, I would definitely recommend the vintage rose design. Go ahead and customize it with your preferred colors to make it more personal.
Here's a closer look on the pink roses:
Did you notice that I didn't add dots to fill in the spaces like I normally do? I wanted to for added flair but I forgot! This what happens when I am anxious to finish a nail art because I wanted to go out and eat! But I like this still. And I am now learning to like pink, too. :)
I think this Valentine's nail art design would look stunning when you go out to celebrate love. It's feminine and timeless.
