Vintage Roses and China Glaze Fifth Avenue

I'm pretty sure we've all seen the vintage rose manicure which usually is done over a Tiffany blue.  I've always admired the look and decided to try it over an existing mani, which is China Glaze Fifth Avenue.  I have a soft spot for "old lady" colors such as this one, haha.

I used two coats of Fifth Avenue over Nailtek II and sealed with OTD.  The next day I added the designs using a bunch of striping polishes.

I used b.s.n. Twisted Ivy and White, Art Club Malmsy, Mint and Lite Pink and Art Deco Baby Pink for the roses, stripes and polka dots.

I just kind of made circular motions, the letter "C" shape, with three different pinks.  Leaves were just kind of sideways dots, made with the length of the striping brush.  It was easier than I thought but the flowers ended up being somewhat abstract in the end.


  1. OMG!!! This mani is so pretty. Love the color combos and designs. I find it classy and girly. Great job! Keep creating more!!!

  2. Really beautiful. Love this design!

  3. I looove mismatched nails they're so pretty :D
