NOTD: Mint and Roses & 200th Post!

Hello everyone! This is my 200th post =) I thought this special post deserved a special manicure, so I took my time.
When I first saw this manicure at Nails by Rachel Blog, I went kinda crazy because they looked soo awesome to me! I've wanted to make my own version ever since. I was unsure how to paint roses that look realistic from a distance, but thank God, my boyfriend is an artist =) He taught me how to paint a realistic looking little rose and together we practiced a bit. Of course these roses are pretty amateur and I couldn't do them as nicely as he showed me, plus the topcoat blended everything together, but I think they suffice for now =)


Here is everything I used.
From Left to Right: Essie Mint Candy Apple for the ring finger. Essie Pretty Edgy and Orly Enchanted Forest for the leaves. China Glaze Sugar High and China Glaze Heli-Yum for the roses. And finally, Rimmel London Rose Libertine for the base of all other nails. And round pink glitter for the... well, glitter =)



Thumb detail:


I did a reverse moon on my thumb. I think it looks interesting! =) I wish I used another base color for my thumb, though, because the rose is not as visible as I hoped.
Thank you for sticking with me for 200 posts! Love ya all! =)

Herkese merhaba =) Bu benim 200. yazım, bu yüzden özel bir manikür yapayım dedim.
Bu manikürü Nails by Rachel blogunda ilk gördüğümde resmen ağzım açık kaldı, çok çok beğendim. Tam benim tarzım olduğunu düşündüm ve o günden beri de yapmak istiyordum. Ancak belli bir mesafeden bakılığında gerçekçi görünmeleri için gülleri nasıl yapmam gerektiğini bilmiyordum. Neyse ki çok şanslıyım, çünkü erkek arkadaşım ressam =) Bana, küçük ama gerçekçi bir gülün nasıl yapılması gerektiğini gösterdi ve birlikte biraz çalıştık. Tabi benim güllerim biraz amatör ve onun bana gösterdiği kadar güzel yapamadım, ve cila da detayları biraz birbirine karıştırdı, ama bence sonuç kötü olmadı. =)
Kullandığım ürünler:
Yüzük parmağımda Essie Mint Candy Apple, yapraklar için Essie Pretty Edgy ve Orly Enchanted Forest, güller için China Glaze Sugar High ve China Glaze Heli-Yum, diğer bütün tırnaklar için de Rimmel London Rose Libertine. Son olarak, Viva La Nails'den gelen pembe pullar.
Baş parmağımda en altta başka bir oje kullansaydım gül daha çok belli olacaktı, ama neyse. Farklı bir versiyonunu yaparım belki daha sonra, bu biraz aceleye geldi =)
200 yazı boyunca benimle kaldığınız için teşekkürler!
