Pink Roses

This manicure is for the lovely little facebook stamping group: Stamp one, Stamp all ten!  This week's theme is to support breast cancer awareness.

This manicure needed to be really feminine, yet strong.  I quickly realised that the inverted roses on this moyou pro plate would be perfect.  Stamping these bold flowers in pretty pinks seemed obvious; but see the "tools and planning" photo to find out how I chose which colours and where they went.

This manicure really reminds me of the giant tins of roses chocolates my family gets for christmas.

Sadly no green triangles in here


  1. Perfect color combos...Loved the roses.... :-) hey this giant tin of roses chocolates...yuummmm...My bro has gifted it to me so many times...sweet memories... :-)

  2. I love this! The Moyou rose stamps are probably my most used ones, and I love the colour palette you've used here :) Great tutorial pics with the stamps on paper too. Will definitely have to do a copy cat/twin mani of this at some point :)

    1. Yay, I'm so happy you like it, I can't wait to see your version. xxxXxxx

  3. Beautiful skittle roses! I love how you included a planning picture, it's always fun to see the "behind the scenes" stuff :)

    1. Thanks Sumeet, I knew I'd never get the colours how I wanted without planning first, those positive/ negative roses made my head spin a little. lol xxxxxx
