Walking across town early last evening, I seemed to have ushered in the snowfall. It began as I left my boyfriend's apartment and gathered as I ventured home. Small white flakes glistened in the twilight. I knew when I was warm in my apartment I would do a manicure with Nubar Sky Sparkle.
Despite how lovely a light snowfall can be, I really wanted a more temperate version of the element water to be displayed in my manicure. I stamped the mermaid from plate M34 along with the fish, the seahorse and the dolphin designs from M27. I used Konad special polish in white and accented the underwater fantasy with blue and white pearls. For those in need of a new weather destination, I hope my manicure will transport your senses.
Such a reflective shade of azure! I thought it would be nice to see the underwater motif close up.
Sky Sparkle has effervescent blue glitter in a clear base. I would recommend layering this color over a bright blue cream. I painted four coats, though I think most people would be satisfied with three. The next time I wear Sky Sparkle, I intend to wear two coats over an opaque blue. The reason I suggest layering is the difficulty with building color on the tip of the nail. In photos, I can see some of my nail showing. This isn't a noticeable factor when my nails aren't under magnification.
I am having such a great time with this collection. I love the reflective capacity of the pure glitter. I feel like these shades are so evocative they easily lend themselves to nail art. They are quite striking on their own as well. Are any of you feeling tempted by this collection?
Sky Sparkle was sent to me for review. The Sparkles Collection is now available for purchase at bynubar.com.
Happy painting, ladies!
