The Lazy Blogger's 31 DC: Floral

Floral huh, they are a lot of different floral tutorials that I have been wanting to do. So the tutorial that I chose to do today I have been putting it off forever. It always looked so hard because the end results were always so beautiful. But, it is Technique Tuesday and a floral prompt, I had to give it a shot.

So I finally opened my folder with all my "to try" manis in it and search for the one by The Crumpet. I chose to use her tutorial on How To...Freehand Roses. Her roses are always just so gorgeous I was scared to try it!

Let me first tell you, Debbie, from The Crumpet, makes awesome tutorials, easy to follow. Because if I can do it, anyone can! So let's see the photo!

Look at that! Can you believe it! I couldn't! Even when I was creating them I thought they weren't turning out right. but once you add that top coat. Presto! Roses! And I love them!

I also realized that these colors of roses reminded me of my mother. She would tell me that the year that I was born everything was in the rosebud pattern. And so I had a rosebud diaper bag, changing pad, dresses, hats, blanket, you name it.

And when I look at these I am reminded of my mom, who passed away 8 years in February. So I am really glad I did these roses because I got to relieve some wonderful memories that I hadn't thought about in years.

For the polishes I used: OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls (base), OPI Sparrow Me the Drama (big part of flower), OPI Steady as She Rose (petals), and OPI Mermaid's Tears (leaves). Yep, a Pirates of the Caribbean rose mani! :)
