Hi there everyone, my name is Katie and I run the blog Lustrous Lacquer. Amy has so graciously allowed me to guest post for her today while she's away on her Honeymoon. Congratulations Amy, hope you're having a fantastic time!
For my manicure I we decided to go with a bridal shower theme. Well what's the common factor in every bridal shower? The Bride of course! I decided to go with a more elegant feel to represent the Bride, this isn't based off the bachelorette party after all.

Using Sinful Colors Snow Me White I carefully went in and added 2 coats. I didn't worry about being perfect since I knew I would be covering the edge up. I did go in with my white striper to make the edges of the wedding dress crisp and clean.
No wedding dress would be complete without a little bling right. China Glaze Fairy Dust was the perfect addition. I wanted to make sure the necklace had a nice curve to it so I used a hole reinforcement to help with the spacing. It ended up being a bigger curve than I originally wanted, but I think it still works.
For the roses I used a green striper from Sinful Colors called Worn Before to make the stems. Revlon Vintage Rose (How perfect is that name) makes up the main color of the roses. I used Revlon Enamor and small nail art brush to highlight each petal. Sinful Colors Last Chance makes up the leaves and completes the look.
