Julep “Family” Vintage Rose Vines Nail Art – Starring My Family

Rose-Colored Subtle Gradient French Tips with Zoya and Wet n Wild

With simple nail art, though, I can still do something slightly more than a solid color. Hence this stuff with muted, rosy colors Zoya Rue and Wet n Wild Sophisticated Lady. At the end of this post, I’ve got a short review of the Urban Outfitters White Rose perfumed topcoat, which I put over this manicure. Check it out:
