Manis for Rose of Manicured and Marvelous

Happy Monday lovelies! It's been a good long while since I've post any nail art, I've been focusing on other aspects of the blog and blogging lately and I haven't had time. But there is always time to do something nice for someone else! Rose from Manicured and Marvelous has been dealing with some health issues and Jessica from Be Happy Buy Polish was sweet enough to come up with this idea for cheering her up. Each one of us who are participating re-created one of Rose's amazing nail art designs. 


I had a hard time choosing which design I wanted do, because Rose has so many great ones to choose from. I ultimately went with this design because it has one of my favorite color combos - black and gold. 

Tools used:

Small-tipped Dotting Tool


Polishes used:

OPI Never Have Too Mani Friends

KBShimmer Sun and Games

OPI by Sephora It's Real 18K Top Coat

I didn't have a large nail art bow like the one in Rose's design, so I improvised by using small heart stones that I had a fashioned a couple of bows with them. My gold top coat also has smaller flakes than hers (which I was mad jelly about btw - that top coat is bomb!). 

I want to give a shout out to Rose not only for her amazing nail art but also to say that though I may not be able to relate specifically to what you are dealing with I certainly understand what's it's like to go through a tough time. I hope this brightens your day or week! xx


And a huge thanks to Jessica for being a super woman - with a new baby no less! And putting all of this together. You rock!
