When I did these I guess I was feeling adventurous and wanted to see if there was a one-stroke rose tutorial out there. Lucky for me, the amazing Tartofraises has this perfect video, which I could follow despite not speaking french. Obviously I don't have her skills and it wasn't as easy as she makes it look but I still like how these turned out.
For the base, I decided to use a textured polish. This was the first textured polish to ever enter my life. It may have been one of the first textured polishes ever, come to think of it. This is three coats of OPI's Can't Let Go, one of the original Liquid Sand polishes.
The roses were done with acrylic paint and a small angled brush. Since I wanted to keep the textured look I skipped the top coat on this one.
There you have my non-violet violet roses. I'm curious to see how the other ladies view violet. I hope I'm not the only one who thinks it just means purple!
'Til next time...
