My Queen of hearts and her red roses!

Hi Nail Polish Addicts!

Here I am with a wonderful polish to show you! My friend Rachel generously accepted to blend me a custom polish (all the way from Australia!).

I didn't thought I could layer it over another color than grey, but I found other pretty combinations after all! Here I applied one coat over two coats of Zoya - Yara :)
If you are jealous and want to purchase it, go buy the inspiration for it: Once Upon A Polish - Queen of Hearts!

For the accent nails, after the background color was dry, I started by drawing roses with a fine white Posca (acrylic paint pen).
I added the drops of red using a tiny brush and China Glaze - Adventure Red-Y. I finally outlined them with the same brush and Wet'n Wild - Black Cr√®me ;)

I am really in love with this polish and its combination with khaki! <3
I'm not sure if I did well with the accent nails though... What do you think?

Have a wonderful day ladies!
