Russian doll nails

Hi all, todays nails are inspired by Russian folk art, I was given this gorgeous little black box as a present and I reeaally wanted to create something similar... I think they turned out pretty cute! I hope you like them too. I wasn't sure about the black background at first because it seemed so harsh but in the end result it really made the look work.. Im pleased! 
1. Start with a black base coat on all nails.
2. Next I used a fine brush and a dotting tool to begin the details, the leaves will look better when more green is added.
 3. Here I have used a darker green on the leaves and a larger dotting tool to begin the roses.
 4. I added a darker red in the centre of the roses.
 5. Add another round of pink on top of the red parts to create the edges of the petals and finish with tiny white dots in the middle of the flower and also along the yellow stripe.
6. Final step is to add a clear top coat  and they're done... I love these nails!
