This mani was inspired by Paulina’s Passions, because nude + roses is always fun! I also wanted to demo another of the Matte Earth Tones by Mentality.
This is Arriccio, a light brown nude. Shown here is two coats (obviously no top coat). The color is a little to grey to be a nude on my skin, but I still like it! I’m guessing I’ll be wearing it a lot once I have to resume my duties in the hospital
I decorated it with at stamp from the Born Pretty Store, and added roses. I initially tried stamping with Black Opaque by Mentality, but the stamp was not cooperating, so I switched to my dried out black polish!
~ Nude: Mentality – Arriccio
~ Pink: Revlon – Bubbly
~ Dark pink: Zoya – Ciara
~ Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black
~ Stamp: BP – L020
I still need to work on adding borders to my nails, my lines are never quite where I want them!
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed. The 31 Day Challenge begins tomorrow, and I’ll be trying to keep up (oy my poor fingers!) and actually posting an inlinkz on my page for once. I used to be decent at css and html but it’s been 6 years since I had to use them…so lets see if this is as easy as I think it’ll be! My poor personal website got taken down when I lost my kerberos account four years ago. Nostalgia!
