Tattooed Love Boys

After numerous love-themed manicures earlier in the year it was nice to have a little break from hearts and flowers as the excitement of Valentine's Day died down. However, today I was in the mood for a little love again. I used three of the new Rita Ora for Rimmel polishes to create this look: White Hot Love* (the dots), Let's Get Nude* (the base), and Raw As Night* (the rose). I then used my black Barry M nail art pen for the rose outline and the writing. The white highlight on the letters is done with the white Barry M nail pen. I used my go-to green for the leaves - Max Factor's Cactus Green. 

My initial plan was not to have the writing but to have roses on each nail. I decided against this after doing the rose and thinking it would be a bit much on every finger as well. Sometimes I do designs on my thumb first so that if it completely messes up or my plan changes it doesn't ruin the entire thing - I can just leave the thumb out of the pics!



  1. I do that too, first trying things out on my thumb! :D This looks really pretty, the rose came out so great and I love the writing!
