Nail Art How To: Mother’s Day Rose Manicures

Nail Art How To: Mother’s Day Rose Manicures

05.06.13

By Elma

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and what better way to have a little mother-daughter bonding than over manicures? Mitch FJ (who happens to be a recent winner of our Nail It! Venique giveaway) shares how to create a beautiful rose manicure for both mother and daughter, using the Venique polishes she won!

It seems that with spring in the air there has been inspiration in the online nail art world to do manicures with roses, mostly freehand. I suck at freehand which is why I am hooked on stamping. I thought these colors from Venique would make for a nice rose manicure.

  • Venique base coat

    I started off with Venique base coat, which is sticky and anchors the polish. Then I applied two coats of Wingtip White on my thumb and ring finger. This is a lovely white cream polish. The formula was perfect -I had no issues at all with it. I applied two coats of I’m A Sucker For Wedges on the rest of my nails. It is a vibrant deep hot pink, which just screams summer to me.

  • Checky CH6, Cheeky CH10 and Cheeky CH14

    The formula of each polish was just right for stamping. I decided I would use them to stamp the images from the plates I selected. For the ring finger I isolated a rose off Bundle Monster’s BM323. For the thumb I used Checky CH6. I stamped these with I’m A Sucker For Wedges. As you can see it stamped perfectly. I used Cheeky CH6 again for the dots and Cheeky CH10 for the stripes. On my pinky I used Cheeky CH14. These were all stamped with Wingtip White. I used two different green strippers to create the little leaves and finished if off with Venique top coat.  I just love how it turned out and the vibrancy of the colors, both as polish and stamping polish.

  • Venique using Jamin’ in Jellies

    My 3 year old loved how my rose manicure turned out and wanted me to do her nails too. She wanted purple and pink, so I opted to keep going with Venique using Jamin’ in Jellies. One thin coat did the trick for her little nails. I stamped the roses using I’m A Sucker For Wedges with Cheeky CH14, the same stamp I used on my pinky. Again, I used my striper in green to make small petals. She was so happy with how it came out.  I think I have a little diva polish princess on my hands! -Mitch FJ, Blue Brain Reviews
