Rosey Posey Pinstripe

Today is the first time in a very long while that I've decorated every nail with the same design and I have to be honest - I don't like the feeling! As much as I love this nail art, I'm just itching to remove the polish from a couple of nails and add in a plain glitter accent or some simple studding!



1. I used a base of W7 White followed by a coat of No7 Stay Perfect Top Coat.
2. I used striping tape to mark off pinstripes and painted over it with W7 Black. While the black polish was still wet, I removed the striping tape.
3.  I waited for it to dry and added another coat of No7 Stay Perfect.
4. I freehanded the roses using a nail art brush with Barry M Blue Grape, Nails Inc. All Saints Road and NYC Raindrop. I used Saly Hansen Grass Slipper for the leaves. There's a tutorial for the roses here.
5. Finally, it's all topped off with another coat of No7 Stay Perfect!



And a few shots before the flowers because I was proud of my pinstripe!

  1. I'm so envious of your striping ability, I can never get the colours even. I always have more of one than the other. The roses over the stripes are genius though, they look amazing!

  12. The monochrome with the blue really makes the flowers pop. I personally love the design, it's captivating.

  14. This was very beautiful even though it was without accents. I love the variety of sometime having accents and sometime not having it.

  16. hahaha - I know the feeling! I can't seem to make all my nails match nowadays! When BF says 'the design is lovely but why didn't you do all nails alike' I just reply 'it bores the hell out of me!' ;) hehehe
    nevertheless, you did a really cute floral vintage mani and I really like it! :D

  17. Even though I loooove your skittles, I think uniform once in a while is amazing too! <3

  18. I know whatcha mean about the uniformness of the mani driving you crazy! That's why striping is so fun. Consistent but you can do something crazy on each nail :) love the pinstripes!

  19. This is kind of related but not really. At the beginning of your post you mentioned taking the polish off one nail and painting it with something else. I have to ask - how on earth do you do that?! If I try, I get cotton wool stuck to whichever fingers I'm holding the cotton pad with and the nail polish remover is going on nails I don't want it to. Help!

  20. Really great :D those stripes are perfect! And I really like the combination with the flowers. Vintage yet edgy. A true Sammy look x
