Tutorial – Matte Pinstripe Roses

Here is my newest tutorial, inspired by my new pair of jeans:

Let’s get this tutorial started:

What you will need:  A nude/beige (Revlon’s “Elegant”), a white striper (Sinful Colors’ “Bad Chick”), a light pink (Sinful Colors’ “Vacation Time”), a light green “Sally Hansen: Xtreme Wear’s “Green With Envy”), a dark pink (Sally Hansen: Diamond Strength’s “Fuchsia Bling Bling”), a matte topcoat (NYC’s “Matte Me Crazy”), a large dotting tool, and a needle-nose dotting tool.

Paint a solid nude/beige base.

Using the white striper (or a thin nail art brush, with white polish), create 3 pinstripes.

Using the large end of the dotting tool, dabbing 3-4 times, create a round cloud-like, lumpy, circle (A perfect circle is not what you are trying to create – you don’t want it to be symmetrical, in order to emulate flower petals).

Using the small end of your dotting tool, create 2-3 leaves around the rose, using 2-3 dots, in a line or triangle shape.

Using a needle-nose dotting tool, and your dark pink, draw 4-5 little lines, dots, and “C” shapes, inside of the flower, to create more flower petals.
Cover with a thick layer of matte topcoat.  Voila!
