Red Roses and Cookies and Cream

About a week ago I rescued The Hungry Asian Cookies & Cream from the Big Box o' Untrieds at long last, and not surprisingly, I loved it. So like I often do, rather than take it off in the morning I kept it on and embellished with some rose nail art.

Oh my gosh, I loved this combination! I also loved that they totally reminded me of Tuxedo Mask (Sailor Moon 4 EVA, y'all!). Red roses on white nails are always a great look, but the little, black speckles in Cookies & Cream added a nice, subtle depth and dimension.

These were acrylic paints as usual, done much the same way I've done a lot of my flower nail art lately, outlined bold and dark. I also tried adding some highlighting on the petals, and I liked how that came out. Thank you, acrylic paints, for being SO much easier to work with than nail polish!

Not much more I can spin out the fascinating story of adding red roses to this pretty polish, and now I've got Sailor Moon on the brain again. ("Gomen ne sunao ja nakute...") Gah, I can not wait for the new series to start... Fangirl mode: ACTIVATE!

Happy Father's Day!
