Antique Roses

Sometimes, inspiration strikes. I recently picked up some water decals from the Born Pretty Store (because I needed to see if I could make them work. I hate failing!), and immediately decided to pair some gold and black roses with a gold/green multi chrome.


This is one of the easiest manicures I have ever done. It took 10 minutes. And I love it! More than that…water decal success!


The decals come as a set of 20 differently shaped black and gold roses with leaves and swirls. For some reason, this set was nice and strong, and the color did not run. My previous attempt at using water decals led to tearing, color bleeding, and general mayhem. Then again, those were not from the Born Pretty Store, and these were. They were even strong enough to be repositioned a few times!


The polish I used is an old OPI, Just Spotted the Lizard. I do love multi chromes! This one shifts from bronze to gold, green, and blue. It’s stunning.



The only downside to this mani was that the largest rose (on my thumb) was scrapped by something white. It came like that. It doesn’t bother me all that much, but it did stand out!


If you want some water decals from the Born Pretty Store, you can check them out here. When I bought them, they were 88 cents, so maybe they will go back down! Totally worth it though. Don’t forget to use my 10% off code (LY5X31) if you do though!

  1. I love their decals. So far haven’t had any problems. And the combination of that multichrome and these roses is amazing!
