Snow White & Rose Red

When I was little I had a bunch of flimsy paperback fairy tales that I could not stop reading. Amongst them were some classics like Thumbelina, Rumplestiltskin, Hansel & Gretel and Snow White. My absolute fave, however, was Snow White & Rose Red. It is probably one of the Brothers Grimm lesser known works but I love it. 

What I loved about this story, more than the actual plot, was the idea of the rose trees in the girls' garden. How beautiful would it be to have a garden full of rose trees? If you are interested in the plot you can read the full story here. It involves a bear and a dwarf and is well worth a read if you aren't familiar with the tale. 

As you know, we love getting inspired by all manner of things. Sometimes the inspiration just hits us. This is a prime example as I have no idea why I this story popped into my head after so many years. 

I created my look using Barry M's White and Blood Orange nail paints and black and white nail pens. If I were to do this look again I think I would try mattifying the polish and drawing the roses on in white on both hands.
