I have a cheerful solar inspired manicure to share with you today. I created this look with Nubar Mellow Yellow and 2010 to celebrate the Summer Solstice.
With Konad pastel orange special polish, I stamped the sun image from Bundle Monster plate BM01. I placed a golden rhinestone in the center of each sun. Considering the latitude and longitude lines on a globe, I striped a band with the fine brush in the 14K Nail Art Pen. I often think of my Australian friends experiencing very different weather! There are two coats of 2010 at the tips. The flakies are more visible in person than in photos. I love how 2010 makes my tips aglow.
It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance.
I wish every shade of yellow applied as well as Mellow Yellow. The yellow pigment that seems to trouble every other maker of polish has been kept appropriately to task by Nubar. I used three coats over a clear base coat with no real problems. This is the first time I have ever been able to successfully apply yellow polish without a tinted ridge filling base coat.
The formula has a pearl finish. As the polish is being applied, brush strokes are visible. These soften once the polish dries. I love the almost incandescent sheen of Mellow Yellow. It's a gorgeous summer shade.
Nubar Mellow Yellow and the 14K Nail Art Pen were sent to me for review. Mellow Yellow is part of the California Dreamin' Collection. The Bejeweled Nail Art Pen Collection contains 14K and seven other gem shades. These products can be purchased at bynubar.com.
