Swatch Series #3; Lady Like & A Mani

Hey everyone ! How are you guys doing ? I hope you are well. I'm pretty good myself. I think I'm finally back on my post schedule. I missed reading all of your posts and your comments. Well today I have a swatch post and a cute little mani. I used Essie's Lady Like and OPI Alpine Snow as a base. Since it was my first time using Essie's Lady Like I thought I'd at least swatch it for you guys. It went on nice and smooth in 2 coats. It's a beautiful  taupe color and great for fall. After swatching the color I decided on revisiting a rose mani that I had done a while ago. I think these roses turned out much better because I took more time and paid attention to detail. As the rose bases I used OPI Black Onyx and China Glaze Spontaneous. Then I just used a white and purple acrylic paint to form the roses. Then I later remembered that I forgot to add the petals so then I added them later. Enjoy !
