For my aunt

Hi everyone!

Yesterday was a difficult day for my family as we had to say our last goodbye to my aunt Jo. She always made sure to take very good care of  herself and I can't remember a time when her nails weren't polished or when her makeup wasn't put on perfectly. She also was very fond of roses. So I decided to create a special nail art in her honor, featuring rose gold and roses.

indoors, no flash

I used two coats of Il était un vernis All is Gold on my pinky. On all other nails I used two coats of OPI Tiramisu for Two. When all that had dried I painted half of my ring finger with All is Gold and stamped a rose from MoYou Mother Nature 05 on my index with OPI Worth a Pretty Penne, as All is Gold wasn't suited for stamping. I painted a very thin coat of Worth a Pretty Penne on a bronze colored stud and immediately rubbed it off so it left just a hint of rose gold, matching it to the polishes I'd already used. I finished by painting a coat of Seche Vite on all nails, placed the stud on my ring finger and added another coat of Seche Vite on top to keep it firmly stuck.

The polishes I used:
OPI Tiramisu for Two, Il était un vernis All is Gold, OPI Worth a Pretty Penne

Dear aunt, as you said yourself " 't is gedaan"
You will be missed.

Il était un vernis All is Gold was bought from The Nailista Shop.


  1. Sorry about your loss. I'm sure your aunt would have loved your mani.

  2. I'm sorry for your loss, and I think this is such a sweet tribute to her memory!


Please let me know what you think. I may not reply right away but I will get back to you in the end... promised!
