Sparkling White Roses

So this is almost like a Nail Fail, but not exactly. The base glitter gradient was created using Revlon's "Sparkling" which is a beautiful cold pale dusty rose colour. Although, it didn't want to fade very nicely, as in past glitter fades I can usually cover the nail tips solidly with 2-3 coats. This one took 5 coats and you can still see my tips peeking through.
Now, the white rose flower was sculpted using white acrylic, I tried at first on a fake nail for practice, then once I did nice ones on there I tried the ring finger. Big mistake. Which is why that finger is blurred, but the middle finger turned out quite nicely.
