Freehand Orange Roses

Today's nails were done using nine different Barry M colours, and a fine paintbrush.

I started with a base of Truffle, the neutral nude colour from the Silks range, and then went crazy with a painbrush and several Gelly colours: Cotton, Mango, Mustard, Papaya, Satsuma, Key Lime and Watermelon. 

The roses were a very odd work in progress. First they looked absolutely AWFUL. Then they looked worse. I kept dabbing away and adding extra swirls, and extra colours...

Then they looked merely disappointing. Then they looked acceptable. Then all of a sudden, they looked really nice! At least, I think they do!

I even think my right hand looks ok!

What do you think?

  1. Wow, gorgeous - reminds me of the 1930's for some reason, must be the colour combo.
