The One With the OPI Roses

9:00:00 AM

Hello all!  A week later, and I am back to blogging.  Last week I had some of the worst migraines.  I honestly am shocked that I didn't overdose or at least get an ulcer with the amount of Advil I was taking.  On Tuesday, I walked into Costco and the migraine hit me so hard that I had to lean against a display for a minute because I felt like I could pass out.  I blame stress and the weather.  Don't even get me started on the weather.  Today, are in a high wind warning, so I'm praying that I don't lose power.  Blah.

Anyways, today's nail art is what I actually wore on Valentine's Day.  Wasn't a huge fan of the manicure, but I received a lot of compliments on it.  I wore a very pretty black blouse with red roses on it for V-Day, so I wanted to have red roses on my nails to match it.  I debated on doing a black base, but opted for the nude.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • OPI - Having A Big Head Day
  • OPI - My Vampire is Buff
  • Acrylics
Kind of cute, but not my favorite rose manicure.  Something about it just bothers me.  I think it's the leaves.  I wish they didn't look as fake and more like leaves.  I also think the base was too light for the red roses.  Maybe not.  Who knows.

I think I should have used a darker nude base.  I think My Vampire is Buff was too bright of a nude and the white dots got lost on it.  That, or I'm being overly critical.  Or the migraines have destroyed my mind.

What do you think?  Actually like this design?  Am I being too harsh on myself?

Until next time, <3.
