I decided to let my nails reflect the weather. Tomorrow the sun will return, but for today, I will work with the palette I see in the sky. There can be beauty on grey days. It's a wonderful opportunity to remain indoors, be thoughtful and drink tea from an owl teapot.
Nubar Palisade from the Fortress Collection forms the base for the design. I stamped the curve of dots and flowers from Konad plate M80. I chose blue pearl princess polish. The turquoise rhinestones provided shimmering blooms. This is my first occasion using a French tip design. I am pleased with it overall.
Nubar Palisade was truly delightful to apply. It was opaque in one coat. I painted two in disbelief. This grey creme is a cooler tone and would be pretty with pink, blue or purple embellishment. It's also lovely on it's own.
My apologies for the tiny bubbles. My stamping topcoat is at the very end. It looked to standard as I applied it and became pesky as it dried. I will blame it on the weather!
Nubar Palisade was sent to me for review. This shade is available for purchase along with the rest of the Fortress Collection at bynubar.com.
Konad plate M80 was provided for my consideration. Konad stamping products are available at ocnailart.com. For a chance to win the eight new image plates, including M80, please stop by the contest post to enter.
Happy painting, ladies!
