Paint your nails with the base shade. Depending on the coverage one to two coats.

Once that is about dry take your light pink shade and put a dollop of it on your paint pallet/paper. Using your short haired brush apply random round circles on your nail. These don’t need to be in perfect circle shape. Leaving space between each light pink round dots.

Once you’ve done one hand take the red polish shade and dollop out some onto your pallet. Using the medium length brush dip it into the red making sure not to get too much polish on the brush. Now on the very edge of the circles make 3 slightly curved lines. Leaving a space in between each red line around the circle. Add one or two small semi colon shapes on the inside of the pink area.

 

Green Leaves | Zoya - Tracie

Now that your rosé is painted it’s time for some leaves. Take the green shade of polish and dollop it onto the pallet. Using the small short haired brush make small semi colon shapes around each rose. Applying two per rose one on each side of the rose.

If you want to go the extra mile I added a dab of darker green to the leaves. Take a dab of the darker green to your paint pallet/paper. Using a toothpick dip it lightly into the dark green polish. Make sure not to get a lot of polish on the tip of the toothpick. Make a small line in the middle of each leaf.

You may have a small amount of cleanup to do around your cuticles . Take the nail sick and dip it into polish remover to clean extra polish off you cuticles.

Once you are done allow the polish to dry and apply a clear topcoat
