A Teenage Monkey

So Brianna is obsessed with The Disney Chanel.  What does that have to do with nails?  One of the actresses from Good Luck Charlie (a Disney Chanel show) posts nail art tutorials on YouTube.  When I asked Bria to go through my Pinterest folders and choose something for me to do on her nails for Monkey See Monkey Do Monday, she almost immediately came back.  She has never made a decision that fast...about anything!  Then I realized why.  She chose  This mani HERE.

I never really expected to ever create a freehand rose mani, but how could I refuse my lovely girl!  Just in case you were curious about Bria, here is a lovely picture of my beautiful and unique daughter.

Isn't she sweet?  Anyways, back to the nails!

This started with two coats of Sinful Colors Mint Apple.  This is a lovely mint green with a subtle glass shimmer.  I'm not a huge fan of Sinful Colors....for several reasons....but this was purchased before I knew the drama surrounding them and this is one I just cannot bring myself to release.  It is unique to my stash and applies like a dream although the brush leaves something to be desired.

I made the roses following the YouTube tutorial.  Once again, Bria's skinny nails made it a bit challenging, but I think I did alright.

I used the following for the roses: 

  • Sinful Colors Easy Going
  • Pixi Luminous Lilac 
  • Pomegranate Autumnesque
  • Ulta White out
  • Essie Navigate Her
  • China Glaze Westside Warrior
Thanks again for looking and check out the other MSMD manis.


  1. Tina, these are so pretty!! Fantastic colours together--they look bright and spring-y but a little vintage too. I love 'em!

    1. Thanks Elizabeth! Nice to hear from you again :-)

  2. This mani looks cute and artistic!

    1. Thanks! It wasn't hard, just a lot of steps.
