Blue Roses - OPI Euro Centrale Nail Art

Hey everyone!

Today I have another nail art design that utilizes shades from the OPI Euro Centrale Collection! I find that this collection offers a lot of great nail art options, which is why I've been playing with it a lot lately. The first design I did was a gradient polka dot one which you can see here, and today's design is a pretty blue-on-nude floral print.

I started with a base of OPI My Vampire is Buff on all of my nails. I keep talking about this shade but I just need to stress once again how much I love it. I already have one back-up bottle and I'm going back to my supply store today to see if I can grab another! I seriously need as many bottles of this as I can find.

Once that was semi-dry, I added some general round shapes using OPI Can't Find My Czechbook and a medium sized nail art brush. While those were drying, I drew on the leaves using a smaller nail art brush and OPI I Saw...U Saw...We Saw...Warsaw. Finally, I added the finishing touches to the roses by drawing a few squiggly lines inside them using OPI...Eurso Euro.

This is actually my first time doing a full graphic rose print and I'm super happy with how it turned out. My favourite thing about this print is that it looks complicated and time-consuming, but in reality it's actually pretty simple! I might even do a tutorial for this one since it's been so long since I've done a tutorial for you all.

I did post a full swatch/review post for this collection, so you can check out all the shades here.

Thanks for looking!


  1. These are lovely and the colours look really fab together! Please do a tutorial-my friend is always telling me how easy roses are but I don't believe him.

  2. Ooh yes, I'd like a tutorial :D

  3. I like both the idea and the way you created it! Lovely!

  4. I love a great neutral for nail art. I have heard so many great things about this color that I may have to grab it. I've been relying on China Glaze Nude and OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons as my bases for awhile now. Time to try something new!

  5. This design is superb! I love it!
    Please do a tutorial! :)
