NOTD - Pink roses manicure w\tutorial

Hey lovelies,

I am here tonight with a simple Valentine's day inspired manicure, Pink roses!!
I took photos of all steps required to create this manicure for you guys, all you need other than polish are a few toothpicks.
This is what I came up with:
 Pretty cute eh??
I used the following nail polishes:
From left to right:
Orly - Lucky duck,
Color Club - Hot like lave,
OPI - bubble bath,
Nicole by OPI - city-pretty rose,
China glaze - tree hugger.

The first thing you will want to do is cut out the pointy tip of one of your toothpicks, it should look like this:

If you want, you can choose to paint your nails for the background color.

The next thing you will want to do is add 4 dots on each nails. This is where the cut off toothpick comes in handy, dip your toothpick in your polish and gently dab it onto your nail.
You can refer to the photos for the position of your dots.

Now you can use a toothpick to draw the outline of your rose with polish, add a few lines here and there to give the illusion of a rose. Refer to photos below:

Now that your roses are done let's draw a little leaf on each side of the rose, again you can use a toothpick.

To finish the look, draw the outline of the leaves with a darker polish.
Refer to photos:

 Voila!! super simple way to create a roses manicure for Valentine's day. :)
Hope you enjoyed, thanks for stopping by,
Kisses and fireworks,
