Nail Tutorial: Vintage Roses & Polka Dots + Giveaway sneak peek!

Hello everybody!!! Today I'm going to attempt a nail tutorial via blogger!  I usually do my nail tutorials on my youtube channel, CDesigns92, but my computer decided that it didn't want to work anymore! Any who, I'm going to show y'all how to create a cute vintage nail design with roses and polka dots!

The inspiration for this design came from a shirt that Kellster, Kellstermakeup on YouTube, was wearing in one of her videos, you can see it HERE.

Click the "Read More" button to see the tutorial for this vintage manicure!

Let's begin!

Here are the polishes that I used!
 From L to R:  Revlon "Make Mine Mango", Finger Paints "Ripe Peach", Sally Hansen "Thinking of Blue", and "White On".  I also used a top coat, base coat, nail art brush, and a dotting tool.

Step 1:
Apply a base coat to protect your natural nails.  Once that dries, apply two coats of your favorite white polish and allow that to dry.

Step 2:
Next you're going to take a light peach color and make various blobs on your nails.  Quick tip:  The messier the blob, the better the flower is going to look!

Step 3:
Take a nail art brush and a coral polish that is a few shades darker than the color of the rose and paint small "C" shapes in the blobs.  Quick Tip:  I find that starting in the center of the circle (blob) and placing the "Cs" in a circle gives the rose a more realistic look.

Step 4:
Take a dotting tool, or a bobby pin, and a navy blue polish and place dots in the white area of your nails.

Step 5:
 Allow your nails to dry for about 20 minutes then apply a top coat.

Your design is finished!

I hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial and found it helpful!  Hopefully I'll be able to make videos again soon, I'm taking my computer to a shop to get fixed next week.

  1. This is such a cute design! I wish my nails weren't so short and stubby. I would love to try this. :)

  2. The design is lovely! Now I have a question, are you as good doing them on your right hand because I always have that issue with designs. My left hand always looks better.

    1. Thank you! My right hand was okay, I smudged the dots a little. I usually try to take my time on my right hand to make it look as good as my left, but my left hand always looks better than my right! Lol
