I started with three thin coats of LaCC 1992, one of my favourite light pink/nude polishes ever! Next, I freehanded the roses using a few LaCC purples: the new shade 1997 for the main part, 1973 for the darker outlines, and a bit of 1972 for some more dimension. Once that was dry, I taped over the flowery halves of my nails and painted the other half in the new shade 1969. I also added some leaves on the flowers in the same green to tie it together. All nails were topped with two coats of LaCC 2013 top coat.
I was going to attach the studs with nail glue, but upon grabbing mine I discovered it had glued itself shut... I tried all I could but it wasn't budging, so out of necessity I just attached them with dots of Seche Vite. They're pretty large so they didn't stay on very long that way, but I'm sure they'd stay on a lot better with nail glue!
