Today I am wearing Dress Rehearsal from the BB Couture for Men Formal Collection. This shade is sage green with a lovely pearl finish. The color seems vintage to me. It reminds me of antique buttons and the leaves on floral party dresses. In menswear, it makes me think of microfiber dress shirts with the subtle sheen to the fabric.
I stamped flowers from Bundle Monster plate BM02 with Konad yellow special polish. Initially, I was imagining dandelions, but thoughts of dahlias and chrysanthemums bloomed in my mind as well. I positioned the stamp to the side on two nails and alternated with centering the design. There are so many ways this image could be placed. I couldn't resist the sunny, golden rhinestones.
The owl ring returns!
I am wearing three coats of Dress Rehearsal, but I think two would suffice for shorter nail lengths. Dress Rehearsal applies fairly easily. You'll want to take some care with application to work with the pearl finish. Brushstrokes aren't too visible once the polish has dried. It is far easier than painting with a frost or a fussy metallic. It's worth the minor additional effort as the finish has a beautiful sheen. This is one of my top picks from the Formal Collection.
