Return Of The Rosebuds

Good evening! It feels like 2013 just started but January's already flown by so quickly. This month I managed to post fourteen nail art looks, making it my most productive month of all time :D Since January 4th I've been updating with new posts every other day. I hope you've been enjoying the steady flow of nail art and I'll do my best to keep it coming for the future! :)

I have yet another floral manicure on my nails. Someone stop me, please. This is actually a copy of a look I did last year, Vintage Roses. I wanted to use a different colour scheme this time but I kept being drawn back to the original, so I changed things up by using the print as an accent instead of a full manicure. I don't know if I've ever done an index-middle accent combo before. I'm a pretty generic ring-thumb kind of gal but I like this accent too.

On my index and middle finger I started with Essie Van D'Go. For the rest of my nails I used American Apparel Dance. I used American Apparel T-Shirt and a large dotting tool to outline the shapes of the roses and leaves. Then I took a striping brush and Essie Play Date to paint the roses and American Apparel Office for the leaves. To finish off the look I used a small dotting tool to make some polka dots.

What do you think of the index-middle accent nails? Show me yours in the comments below or tweet @preciouspolish!

    I don't mind to see all the florals since it's still dark & cold outside. ^.^ Love the way you draw the roses, looks so cute!

  4. Beautifully done! I just did an index/middle accent--but only because I chipped those two nails and needed to to a cover up. :)

  5. It looks fantastic! So sweet ^^ Those roses look great, I love the vintage effect they give :)

  6. Thanks, Karen! Haha that's a really clever idea!

  7. Yep, and now we're almost halfway into Feb! ): Thank you!
