The Digit-al Dozen Does Texture--Too Simple Or Wonderously Simple?

Hi Everyone!  I decided to shoot for something simple today to showcase that even something out of our comfort zone doesn't have to be large and all up in someone's face.  Lately I've been obsessed with watching You Tube videos of all those fabulous talented ladies who are doing roses or flowers or just 3D art in general out of acrylic powder.  They make it look SO easy.  I thought about learning how to do it just for this challenge.  Then after about a week of watching tutorials and feeling totally ready to do it I started laughing.  I mean come on?!  Who do I think I am?!  I can't even free hand for crying out loud.  There is no way I'm going to be able to do some 3D nail art with acrylic.  So I bought some lovely rubber roses!  Yes rubber!  They look so pretty too, they have depth and dimension to them and I found they made this mani look really pretty despite being so simple.
I chose one of my new Rescue Beauty Lounge's to use as a base for this mani.  Forgotten Road, it is SO lovely!
I think these little rubber roses which I found on Amazon are perfect.  They are a blend of white and blue to give it some depth
I did have to use super glue to apply as just sticking these in seche vite didn't work, I lost one doing dishes!
I think this is really beautiful.  What do you all think?  Are you a fan of 3D nail art on nails?

Let's see what everyone else has done for today!
