A rose by any other name

Hi Readers!  Has anyone else wondered really what that whole phrase means?  A rose by any other name would smell as sweet?  Isn't a rose is a rose is a rose?  I'm not sure I didn't really love Shakespeare when I took it in high school.  I'd rather stick to my current day romances thank you very much LOL! Today's theme in the 31 Day Challenge is flowers.  I recreated a mani I saw on the last Bundle Monster contest.  I voted for this mani every single day I loved it so much and I could not believe it didn't win!  The creator of it is Emily's Nail Files and alas it looks as if she isn't blogging anymore :(  Sad face for sure.  It makes me sad to see bloggers fall out of love with stamping and nail art.  Let's hope it never happens to me!

Let's take a look at my roses!

The thing I love about this mani is it matches the blouse I'm wearing to work tomorrow! WOOT I love it when that happens!

I basically followed Emily's directions painting my nails with Zoya Dove and then stamping the lace image from BM20 using Nails Inc Maddox Street which is a gorgeous gun metal grey metallic.  Then I did some maroon blobs with Nails Inc Wilton Row (which I ADORE) and stamp the rose image from BM14 over it with WetnWild Tickled Pink.  

Hmm I wonder if I should have saved this mani for Delicate Print day????

I do really love the Nails Inc's I have--they are wonderful cremes that work fantastic for stamping!

What's up for tomorrow????
Delicate print LOLOLOLOL  I sure hope I can pull something out of my rump for that one!

Thanks for stopping by!!  I hope everyone has a great weekend!


  1. This is beautiful. I could never do this until I learnt how to place my stamping so very precisely!

  2. Ditto, my stamping is not always precise so I wanted to recreate this one too when I saw Emily doing it but not sure it'd be the same in my version. But practice makes perfect and I am a perfectionist so I will give it a go!

  3. beautiful combination of stamp images! love this design so much!!!
    I must give this a try, but i'm also like you girls, trying to place a stamp exactly where I want it is very tricky and I often miss the mark completely LOL :)
