Tuesday's Talons: Desert Haze Rose NOTD

Currently listening to: Hall of Fame by The Script

 Good eveing lovely ladies,

Today's manicure is inspired by Kelsie from Kelsie's Nail Files.  Recently Kelsie created a beautiful vintage rose manicure using two Red Angel plates.  I had never thought of using two stamps together in this way and since I have the plates, I thought I'd give it a try.

 

I started by painting my nails with Desert Haze by e.l.f.  I really don't like this polish as application is so troublesome but it was the closest polish I had to the one used by Kelsie.  To cover up the streaky areas, I added a layer of Essence Night in Vegas.
 


 For the stamping, I first of all stamped the rose stem using Barry M Teal and Red Angel plate RA 115.  Then I added the rose using Yesensy 32 and RA 116.  I stamped my roses in the opposite direction from Kelsie and they weren't so nearly as well placed as she managed but overall I was pleased with this manicure as it was only meant to be an experiment.  Next time will be better!


What do you think girls?  Whose nail art have you been inspired by lately?

Bye for now,
Laura
