Stained Glass Roses

Hey, everyone!

Today I've got a nail design that I absolutely looooooved wearing! I made it using a stamping plate that I've had for a while but this is the first time I used it! Keep reading to find out all the details!

I've only done leadlighting nails a couple of times so far so I really wanted to have another go at it. And this gorgeous rose design from Born Pretty Store stamping plate BP-73 (that I purchased a few months ago and hadn't used yet) was perfect for what I had in mind! Plus, I wanted to play around with the OPI Color Paints Minis set that my brother had given me for Christmas. Doesn't he know me well?

I started off with two coats of Sally Hansen Celeb City on all my nails. This is probably my favorite silver foil polish! It's so fantastic! When it was dry, I stamped the roses onto my nails using my black stamping polish. Then, I used a combination of my own sheer tints and the OPI Color Paints to fill in the images. I used The Nail Smith Sunburn, Creamsicle, Sunshine, and Garden Addict, and OPI Chromatic Orange, Primarily Yellow, and to get a rich green I mixed Primarily Yellow and Turquoise Aesthetic. On my pinky I used a combination of the different tints to make a quick gradient on my nail. I finished everything off with topcoat.
