The Digit-al Dozen Does Vintage: Victorian Floral with SoFlaJo Pink If You Love Me

Hi everyone! When it comes to vintage, Victorian style roses are an obvious choice. But in this case it was the perfect choice to feature SoFlaJo's Pink If You Love Me. This is from their Valentine's Day collection, and it's such a beautiful dusty pink holo - perfect for anytime of the year.

About SoFlaJo Pink If You Love Me: This is a dusty pink linear holo with a strong holo effect. The colour is kind of muted so it is perfect for wearing to work if you need to wear neutral-coloured polishes.

The formula was great. It leans on the sheer side, but I was able to get full coverage with 3 coats. Application-wise it went on very smooth and easily.

About this design: If you google "Victorian roses" you will get a bunch of images that have a certain look to them. I think that's what I was getting at with this design. I also wanted to combine some roses with stripes, and thought it would make the classic image more interesting. I really love how painterly the roses turned out.

To get this look: I started with a base of OPI My Vampire is Buff - I also used this polish as my white, and mixed it with the other colours to get my highlights. I painted the roses with a base of Zoya Rue and Pink If You Love Me. For the dark areas of the roses, I mixed Rue with Sally Hansen Grey Area. For the leaves I used Renaissance Cosmetics Mount Pleasant.

The stripes I painted with Orly Luxe, Zoya Rue, and Pink If You Love Me.

What do you think of this design? Do you ever use images or motifs that are "overdone", and if so, how do you make them more interesting?

You can find SoFlaJo on their shop, also you can keep up with them via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
