T.P.A. Challenge - 14. Vintage nails

Ok, another Saturday, another collaboration. And today we have vintage nails. I searched for inspiration on the internet and saw only complicated designs, so I stopped on a more easy approach.
A few days ago I made myself some stencils of a cameo, because it's easier to start another cameo on a piece of plastic than erasing the whole nail and start over.

For the background I used Rimmel London 60 seconds - 500 Caramel Cupcake, applied some nail tape from Cupio and added a coat of baby blue from Gabrini N12. Then I made the roses (they are roses, not blobs :) ) with a dotting tool using Gabrini M118 (dark pink) and 309 (light pink) and the leaves with a new green in my collection Golden Rose Paris 151.

For the cameo I used white nail polish from Gabrini 3D - 02 and black from Classics Glamour - 178. Underneath the design I used a laced sticker because I felt the nail was incomplete, it seems better.

After everything was done, I applied 2 coats of top coat, Gabrini 300.
And that was it. I have to admit, the other girls did a better job than me! If you don't believe me, go check out their designs! :)
