Chandelier Aglow

Hello ladies,

I have another stunning polish from the Nubar California Dreamin' Collection to share with you: Hollywood Pink. Inspired by the name of this polish, I wanted to create an elegant and modern nail look.

From Bundle Monster plate BM08, I stamped the chandelier image using Konad white special polish. I added a jewel from the Nubar Mirror Gem Wheel. I couldn't resist tipping my nails with silver with the striper brush in the Platinum Nail Art Pen. The photos were taken in a variety of natural light settings. Hollywood Pink glows in every one.

Hollywood Pink was opaque in two coats. There was an odd occurrence when I applied this polish. After adding a coat of Diamont, the finish temporarily changed to matte. This happened at the very tips and lasted only briefly. Once Hollywood Pink was completely dry, the high gloss one expects with Diamont returned. I honestly don't know if this is a particular application issue with this polish or if it was related to the very high humidity in Philadelphia at the time I was doing my manicure.

Hollywood Pink has the gorgeous pearl finish that is characteristic of the California Dreamin' Collection. I'm really impressed with the beauty of these shades. Each and every color is vibrant and glowing.

Nubar Hollywood Pink, the Platinum Nail Art Pen and the nail jewels were sent to me for review. Hollywood Pink is part of the California Dreamin' Collection. The Platinum Nail Art Pen can be found in the Bejeweled Collection. The crystals are sold in the Mirror Gem Wheel. All of these products can be found at

Stop by the contest post for a chance to win all six polishes in the California Dreamin' Collection plus a summer fun gift pack.
