Another pretty easy one, this is just the ol’ standard roses on a solid base color.  I started with two coats of OPI Play In The Peonies — not a sheer (thank goodness) but same sort of feel in the end with a finish that’s something like waxed spun sugar.  Had to run out the door soon after so went for the quicky nail art on this one, adding some yellow roses in acrylic paint and then sealing it down with SV.  It’s subtle — not a ton of color shifting anywhere — but it’s a good look for some occasions I think.

      Turns out this mani *is* going out for dinner at Commander’s Palace, so that’s a little frou-frou! It all works out in the end :)

      Thank you! There are actually like 3 different yellows in there but you really can’t tell until you get right up on it… For some reason I’m always too scared to put orange into the yellow roses, but it’d probably help!
