Simple Spring Roses

Press Sample

Hello Loves.  Today's mani is one that I consider a bit of a fail.  I love the design, but I'm not really happy with the color combination.  Before we get to the mani, I'm happy to announce that Couture Gel Nail Polish has set up a discount code just for you!  Enter "ManicTalons" at checkout for 10% off!

Ok, so onto the nails.  I was going for soft and subtle, but I think I went a little too soft on the base color and definitely too soft on the leaves.  As usual, details to follow.

I started with a base of Couture Francais.  Francais is a gorgeous, creamy nude pink that is the perfect base for a classic french manicure.

I added some nice blobs with a dotting tool using Couture Lavender Lace.  Lavender Lace is a sweet lavender cream.

I then added petal details with Couture Ooh La La French and leaves with Couture Silky Sea Foam.  Finally, I brushed Couture French Affair over the roses to give them a touch of shimmer.  These colors are in my swatch gallery if you missed the original posts.  Want to see a closer shot?

What do you think?  Keeper or fail?


*The polishes used in this post were provided by Couture Gel Nail Polish for my honest review.


  1. Not a fail at all!!! If this was the bar for a fail, then I'd never post anything. LOL. I think it's gorgeous!

  2. I agree, I vote for keep
