Fentiman's Rose Lemonade: BB Couture Aphrodite

Hello ladies,

Today I am bringing you a whimsical manicure inspired by my favorite beverage, Fentiman's Rose Lemonade. I am often seen walking through the garden with a parasol in one hand and a bottle of Rose Lemonade in another. I believe a proper manicure was in order.

I began with a base of BB Couture Aphrodite because it would not surprise me if the Goddess of Love is drinking Rose Lemonade at this very moment, while inspiring scenes of beauty and romance. I painted a stripe at the nail line with Art Club Gold Glitter. From Born Pretty Store, I chose rose and lemon fimo to create a funky French. I love how the placement of the rose blossoms and lemon wedges looks like little bows! With a variety of pink and yellow gems and pearls, I formed jeweled dots to reflect the natural carbonation in Fentiman's Rose Lemonade. 

Apologies the roses were not blooming with their usual grandeur and Pennsylvania does not offer the best climate for lemon trees. My bottle of Rose Lemonade certainly embodies both flavors on its own. 

My right hand.

Aphrodite is hot pink with a cooling, frosty finish. Pale pink shimmer is stirred throughout. I am showing three coats. Easy to apply, Aphrodite is certain to delight pink lovers. 

Have you sampled any varieties of Fentiman's sodas or ever enjoyed a rose flavored beverage? I admit to regularly bringing an extra bottle of Rose Lemonade to share when meeting a friend. Only my recycle bin will truly tell the tale of how many bottles I enjoy weekly. What is your favorite drink of the summer? 

Mention of Fentiman's Rose Lemonade was done purely out of love. Discover more about the full range of sodas at and in the UK at

    Freshie: Thanks, sweetie! I did have a really great time creating and wearing this manicure. It seemed to attract happy bunnies as well. ;)

  11. My ears perked up when you started talking about Rose Lemonade. I love rose herbal tea. But it doesn't look like I'm going to find this Lemonade around here. I'll have to check Whole Oats just to make sure.

    I love how the manicure works so well with your love for the beverage. It looks very summer-y. :)

  12. I've never heard of this brand. Also never have had a drink with roses in it. Your manicure really gets the feel of the drink. Very pretty and so feminine.

  13. I love it. so cool and spacial!!!

  14. A very refreshing manicure with a vibrant splash of color. You know the pink lemonade bottle would be a vase in the u of pennsylvania window.
