Wayback Nails: White Rose Accent

Wow, not even the middle of the month, and I'm already posting my Waybacks! It still counts as last-minute, though, because even though I'm well before the end of the month, I'm cramming to get my July posts scheduled before I hit the airport in a few hours, so...nice to see some things never change! >_<

Anyway, once again, on to the manicure! Last July I took a stab at my first freehand rose nail art and managed what I thought was a cute little accent nail. Since then I've done a lot of florals with acrylic paints, but I thought it'd be fun to go back to the basics with my dotting tool.

Just like last time, I I started with a base of OPI In My Back Pocket, but I decided to give it just a little bit of texture by saran wrap applying a little China Glaze Make Some Noise. The rose is Bandi Alpine White, and the leaves are Essie Pretty Edgy and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Grass Slipper.

Hmm, the nail shape is a whole lot better than a year ago, but it looks like I'm still having a little trouble with the whole white/colour balance thing. Hahahaha, and reading the post, it's obvious I'm still having a LOT of trouble getting organized before I head out of town. Serious deja vu happening here--wish me luck!!
