The One With the Floral Manicure Inspired by Paulina's Passion


Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing today??  It's Monday which means it is the start to another fun filled work week.  Hopefully it won't be as busy as last week, but I highly doubt that.  I apologize for not getting a post up yesterday but it completely slipped my mind.  I was out late and forgot to schedule a post.  Time just ticks away from me.

Anyways, today's manicure is one that I have been wanting to do for quite some time.  After finding a beautiful purple negative space floral rose manicure by Paulina's Passion on Pinterest, I pinned it to my Nail Ideas board and sat on it for quite some time.  I loved the look, wanted to attempt it, but really did not have the courage to do so.  I didn't think it would look right on my nails at all, my roses would be messed up, and it just all around would be a disaster.

After months of procrastinating and refusing to attempt the design, I finally gathered the courage and tried it.  And guess what, it wasn't a disaster at all!

Let's take a look.



Colors Used:
  • OPI - My Boyfriend Scales Walls
  • OPI - Love Angel Music Baby
  • FingerPaints - Lavender Love
  • Color Club - Blue-Ming
Isn't it gorgeous?  I cannot believe how much I love this manicure.  I was super proud of myself too when I completed it and had no smudges, perfect lines, and rather decent roses.  The hardest part of the whole manicure was the tape.  The easy part was that I just had to apply a base coat and then the tape since it's a negative space manicure.  The hard part; lining all the tape up.  My OCD was really testing me with this manicure.  I'm so proud of myself for getting all the lines rather straight and evenly spaced on all the nails.



The roses on top really completed the look.  I'm so happy I stumbled across this design and that I finally re-created it on my own nails.  Thanks to the FingerPaints Gel Like Base Coat,  I was able to enjoy this manicure for five days before I finally took it off.  And honestly, it could have gone another day or so because there were absolutely no chips.  I'm in love with that base coat now.

What do you think?  Fan of this look?  Something you would try?

Until next time, <3.
