Today I am combining Swiss Chocolate with Chinese Bellflowers. The luscious brown creme from the Nubar Chocolate Truffles collection creates the base for my interpretation of balloon flowers. The flora was drawn with Migi Nail art pens in green and violet. I adhered purple flat backed pearls to represent the flowers.
The next two photos show my right hand and then a close up of my right thumb. I actually drew the leaves and attached the pearls on the nails of my right hand while chatting over coffee with my girlfriends. I am gaining confidence drawing with my left hand.
Nubar Swiss Chocolate applied easily and was opaque in two coats. I have one polish left from the Chocolate Truffle collection to share with you. I am loving this collection so much I honestly wish there were more colors to review! Swiss Chocolate is a beautiful brown. Even though I love this shade without embellishment, it will certainly be a go to brown as a base for nail art. I used Diamont topcoat to seal the look. Diamont is wonderful as a layer to keep the pearls in place and gloss over the painted design, providing shine without smearing.
Swiss Chocolate was sent to me for review. The Nubar Chocolate Truffles collection is available at bynubar.com.
To adhere the pearls, I began by making three dots using the Migi Nail Art pen in violet. I then placed the pearl in the center of the dots. I followed with one coat of Nubar Diamont. My friend Lisa practiced with the green pen by drawing a wavy line near the top of her nail. She definitely gave me some inspiration for funky french designs! Migi Nail Art provided the violet and green pens for review purposes. Migi Nail Art pens are available for purchase at miginailart.com.
Happy painting, ladies!
