Broken Rose

Last week I decided on a super-simple design that always gets lots of compliments. I started with two coats of OPI "A Rose at dawn...broke by noon" over Seche Vite base coat.
I just got new nail art polishes from Art Club, so I used the silver striping brush to make a "Y" on each nail.
Then I put a dark purple rhinestone in the center of each, just for a more finished look.
 After that, just two coats Seche Vite top coat, and clean up. Voila, simple & easy...

This week, I'm going to attempt red & black stiletto style claws for the Gruesome Twosome concert I'm headed to (Rob Zombie & Alice Cooper). We'll see how they turn out...

Until next week, happy polishing!

How do you "clean up"? I would have a huge mess!!!

Lacquer - thanks! :-)

Sherrinda - I use an orange stick in the shower. Once I've shampooed, conditioned and shaved, the skin around my nails is soft enough that the extra polish just comes right off. ;-)

I'm planning a video (with a sink of water, not the shower LOL) to show how soon, just haven't had the time yet...
