Pinstripe roses - girly nail art


Spring is here and so is my need for pink!
Today I decided a on pretty popular type of manicure - pink with white stripes and roses. For the base, I used OPI Pink Friday and white nail art brush for the lines. The roses were ELF Bubblegum Pink and the leaves were ORLY Green Apple. I also used some glitter and tried to make a big heart... but it didn't come out as nice as I would have liked. I'm hoping practice will make perfect! I want to to try this manicure again with a bit of variation, I felt very fancy and feminine while wearing it... with a tshirt and jeans. The vertical lines do make the nails look dramatically longer, so that's also a big plus.
Sun has been a precious commodity recently, so I'm happy to have been able to snap a few pictures in sunlight... it looks so crisp and clear! 
What do you think of this type of nail art? Would you try it?
