#WeekOfLoveChallenge - Sticky Roses
Today's challenge for the Week of Lurve is roses. I like roses. I even have a yellow rose tattoo.
I can not paint a decent rose to save my life.
So, when a friend gave me some rose nail art decals for my birthday, I knew I was saved from humiliation for this challenge!
I started with Zoya Marley, a delicate lilac-leaning pink. So much like the neutrals coming out this season, really.
I then put some drops of Zoya Yana and Lexi on my palette, and dipped a piece of crumpled cling wrap into them and then dabbed it on my nail to create this marbled effect. It's about the closest to a water marble I can get!
I used the rose nail decals over the marble.
A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but a rose decal is infinitely neater than my botched attempts to paint them.
When I got back into nails this time around, my first foray into art was these kinds of stickers. I don't use them as much now, but I still have a soft spot for them. I really love almost any kind of applique' - stickers, water decals, studs, and rhinestones - you name it.

Do you use decals and stickers in your nail art?
