Cream with Roses Nail Art

Purchased by me / Kjøpt av meg

Before I get into todays nail art, I wanted to let you know that I will try to write my blog posts in both English and Norwegian from now on =)
Før jeg viser dere dagens negler, så vil jeg bare si ifra at jeg kommer til å prøve å skrive blogginnleggene mine både på engelsk og norsk fremover =)

This weeks theme from FingerFood is flowers. I chose to try making roses on my nails for the first time.
Denne ukens tema fra FingerFood er blomster. Jeg valgte å prøve å lage roser på neglene mine for første gang.





For my base color, I decided to go with OPI's "My Vampire is Buff". It's the first time I've used this polish, and I'm still not sure if I like it or not. I guess I'd like it a bit more if it was even lighter, as it is quite beige in some light conditions. Hey, if anyone out there know of a polish in a color in between this polish and stark white, I'd love to hear about it in the comments! But this polish did turn out just beautiful with this nail art =) I used acrylic paints for the roses and leaves, and the OPI polish for the lines on the roses. I am so happy with how easy these roses were to make - I even managed to paint them easily enough with my non-dominant hand =)

------------------------------------------------------------
For basefargen her brukte jeg OPIs "My Vampire is Buff". Det er første gangen jeg bruker denne lakken, og jeg er fortsatt ikke sikker på om jeg liker den eller ei. Jeg tror riktignok at jeg ville likt den litt bedre dersom den hadde vært litt lysere, for den er ganske beige under noen lysforhold. Hvis noen av dere vet om en lakk i en farge som er en mellomting mellom denne og kritt hvit, si gjerne ifra i en kommentar! Men, denne lakken passet perfekt til denne negle"kunsten" (negledekoren? eller hva nå enn man skal kalle 'nail art' på norsk...) Jeg brukte akrylmaling til å male rosene og bladene, og OPI lakken til å male linjene inni rosene. Jeg er så fornøyd med hvor enkelt det var å male rosene, jeg klarte til og med å male dem ganske bra med venstrehånden min (og jeg er høyrehendt =)
