I probably should get my holiday manis posted, but I wanted to share this winter mani I did with you first. I think I'm going to compile my holiday looks into one post and post it tonight. So be on the lookout for that one! Here's the winter look I did with tweed and roses. :)
I was inspired to do this look by these nails I saw in a Nail Venus magazine scan. They're the third set down from the left. I never really looked at nail magazines before, and I wish I could get my hands on some! I think I'm going to try looking for them at a Japanese supermarket. I cropped the pic below from a scan, but you can see the full scan by clicking the pic.
Oh how I sorely wish I had more rhinestones and acrylic designs to decorate my nails with! Unfortunately, my supply of nail tools are pretty limited, so I had to make do with what I had. This was my first time doing a tweed look, and I definitely think I could do better. Next time, I'll try to make my lines thinner to keep it from looking plaid like. I also had to draw my roses in. It was my first time actually drawing a rose, so I was a bit intimidated, but I really love how they came out! It was very easy to do too. Next time I draw roses again, I will definitely do a tutorial for you guys! Here are some more pics of my version.

On a sidenote. Remember when I swatched the base color (Dr.'s REMEDY Nurture Nude Pink) back when it was summer? I remember saying in the post that it looked awful on me. However, when I used it for my mani here, it actually looked nice! I think my hands got paler over the winter, making it look nicer on me. So it actually might be a good idea to retry summer colors you didn't like again in the winter. :P
Anyway, what did you think of this mani? Let me know in the comments! :)
