Lilac - Rose | Scrapbook Nails

While browsing YouTube, I found this rose nail art tutorial. The end results are really pretty and it looked a lot easier to do then I'd originally thought, so I decided to give it a go.
I did try this out on paper first, as I didn't want to re-paint my nails if I messed up! At first, I thought I might be able to do this with normal polish, but the texture and thickness isn't very easy to work with. Luckily for me, my sister is an artist, so there are always acrylic paints laying about the house.
After my paper practice, I attempted the design on my ring fingers. I LOVE it! It's definitely one of my favourite manis to date.

I used:
Base coat - No7, So Smooth
Lilac -  OPI (mini), Rumple’s Wiggin’ [from the shrek forever after collection]
Pink & White roses - Acrylic paint
Green stems - Rio nail art pen in metallic green
Top coat - China Glaze, Fast Forward Top Coat
