Vintage Roses

Hello my loves!

I don't know what it is with me lately...I've been obsessed with roses...
Guess it's one of those things that when you finally learned how to do it, you just want to do it over and over again?

I picked up OPI's My Vampire is Buff at the SPA Show back in February...
and I thought it'd be a great base to showcase these vintage roses.
The formula of this bottle is so....fussy....? I had a really hard time reaching full coverage with it..
Any of you guys experiencing the same thing?

I painted on every detail (including the black lines) with acrylic paint and used KISS studs on my accent finger.
2 Hours into the completion of this mani, my usual self kicked in and decided that it needed MOAR....
so I started playing around with some things...

First- I added Butter London's Matte topcoat....and it made things EVEN MOAR vintage!
Then I added some roses, redid one finger and VOILA! RANDOM!
You should be proud to know that I managed to leave TWO fingers alone....

I like them better now that they're more random...


Have a great day, friends!


  1. It's so PRETTY. And I like random. :) AVOCADO hahaha!
