Antique Roses Nail Art, Essie Full Steam Ahead

This art is inspired by a new to me account I found recently Linked here. KRDNR is a fantastic swatcher, and also one of the Queens of floral. I quickly added this and a couple other looks to my inspiration folder. 

For my lovely lilac base I used Essie Full Steam Ahead in two coats. The floral details were all created with acrylic paints. I had to try some new brush stroke techniques in order to get those antique looking roses to look even remotely like the inspiration mani, I am in love with the final look, and only just removed this to work on something special.

Now ladies, I must let you know that Saturday is my birthday/blogiversary and I have a cool week of festivities planned as well as something really special at the end of the week! Stay tuned...

Cheers all,
