Rose Stockings

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!
I tried to think of a Valentine's design other than hearts for my nails this week.  I didn't get very far; I chose roses.  :)

I used Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Cafe Au Lait for the base.  I stamped the "fishnet" with Cheeky plate CH11.  I polished a circle of my lighter rose color over the netting and then did my best to stamp the rose design in a darker color over the lighter circle using Red Angel RA-116.  I like stamping with two colors this way even though I can never quite get my stamps (or sizing) to line up perfectly.

Oops - still needs some clean up.
If you're curious about the colors I used for the roses, here's the "photo lineup".

(L-R) Kleancolor Pastel Orange, L'Oreal Pumpkin, Pure Ice Love, Sally Hansen Insta Dri Rose Run, Kleancolor Pastel Purple, Kleancolor Lavenbaby.

Be well, Konaddicts!  I hope your week is, well, coming up roses!
