Mint and Lilac with Vintage Roses

Painted Fingertips | Lilac and mint with vintage roses

Hi everyone!

Today I have another manicure for the weekly nail art challenge I am participating in on Instagram this month. The theme for today is mint and lilac so I’m expecting to see lots of lovely delicate manicures! Painted Fingertips | Lilac and mint with vintage rosesI started off with my gradient in mint and lilac using Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet and Lacey Lilac. I am SO happy with this gradient! See how smooth it is? These colours were so lovely together. I spent a little extra time on the gradient, going over and over it until it looked smooth. It was so worth it and hopefully I’ll be able to do some more smooth gradients. I think the fact that these two polishes look amazing together helped a lot too!

I used Sally Hansen Purple Pulse and Good To Grape along with Essence white stampy polish for the roses (it was the only white I had! Shocking!) and added the leaves with Essie Pretty Edgy.Painted Fingertips | Lilac and mint with vintage rosesI wasn’t 100% happy with the little roses, but I still liked the overall look. I really think the gradient made it! Painted Fingertips | Lilac and mint with vintage rosesWhat do you think?
