Nail Art: Vintage Pink Roses

It's no secret that I am not a pink gal. But I've always wanted to create a nail art with the gray and pink combo. And I think I found a good excuse since it's Valentine's season!

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.

Have you tried creating a vintage rose nail design? What colors did you use?

  9. I like the idea and the combination of colors! Only, the shade of gray doesn't really go quite well as the base. Gray is fine, but not that kind of gray. **For me! That is. Lighter, perhaps?

  13. I've been browsing pages of your nail art and I think they all look amazing, but this totally blew me away! Amazing!

    I'm not a big fan of nail polish. This design, however, made me wish my nails weren't as awful so I could wear it! Haha.

    Incredible talent! Kudos!
