On my nails today is Who Are You Wearing? from the Color Club Rebel Debutante collection. It's an usual shade of whitened lavender. Who Are You Wearing? could easily be categorized as work appropriate. It's a couple shades lighter than a typical pastel lavender and has far more visual interest than a basic white. This polish is a good representation of the theme of the collection. Who Are You Wearing? falls into the neutral range, but it has a little edge.
Inspired by the name, I decided to do some Konad stamping. I chose the high heeled shoe and the belt from M9, the purse from M16 and the girl from M71. I used gold black princess polish to stamp the images with a bit of shimmer. Originally, I planned to add some rhinestones to this look. Once I finished stamping, I was so reminded of old fashioned silhouettes and vintage advertising, I didn't think it needed further adornment.
Who Are You Wearing? applied well for a pastel creme. I didn't need to use a ridge filling base coat the way I normally would with a light color. I applied three coats for near perfect opacity. Pale creams can be tricky to apply, but Color Club's formula certainly made the process easier.
I am having some trouble with the Konad princess topcoat. I had bubbling only in the clear topcoat. Who Are You Wearing? applied smoothly and without issues. I am going to be trying every topcoat in my collection to see if there is a suitable alternative for use with Konad. I will certainly let you ladies know my findings.
Who Are You Wearing? was sent to me for review. The Color Club Rebel Debutante Collection will be available soon from Victoria Nail Supply. I will update you when I have an exact release date. Please check out the Be A Rebel Debutante Contest for a chance to win this collection.
Happy painting, ladies.
