Hello there loves! How are you?! Its been a bit since I've been able to join in on the Crumpets Nail Tarts but things finally worked out and I am back for this weeks theme! I wasn't sure what to do fun this Lilac, pink, and gold theme but then all of the sudden rose quartz came to mind!



Rose Quartz Nails

So since rose quartz seem to be a pale pink I decided to create that as my base. Plus I just haven't really tried it so I wanted to give it a go! I used Morgan Taylor Plumette with Excitement as my base pink. I then used some watered down white and created some big wavy strokes. After that was dry I tried to get a layer effect. So I then put a thin coat of OPI Bubble Bath on top. Its super sheer so I thought it would help give the look depth.

Once that was dry I added some extra strokes of white but this time thin, and a touch of gold. Then after that some top coat. I think some time I will try this look without the coat of Bubblebath. Have you done a rose quartz mani before? Anyone have any tricks, or different technique I should try. I would love to try them out! Also if there is anyone who would like to see how I did mine let me know! I could totally do a Tutorial or Paint With Me video if you would like.

So after that I had to add in the lilac. I decided to be very literal and just do some lilac flowers. I thought about using this to frame the nails, or have them water fall out of the cuticle area. Yet I just ended up going very simple!
