Happy 4th of July to all those celebrating! I wanted to create a starry manicure for the occasion. My thoughts wandered afar from patriotism to considering the movement of starlight over the ocean.
I began with Nubar Mali Blue as the base. With Konad white special polish, I stamped the star image from Bundle Monster plate BM14. I reversed the pattern to create a wave formation of stars. I layered one coat of 2010 over the turquoise glitter in Sky Sparkle. I then placed a star jewel from the Mirror Gem Wheel at the end of each trail. My tips are aglow.
Nubar Sky Sparkle
The fragrance of these lilies is exquisite.
Look who I met on the garden path! A baby bunny. She was so small I could easily have placed her in my palm. I wanted to give her kisses and put her in a teacup.
Mali Blue looked best with three coats on my long nails. The formula in all the polishes from the California Dreamin' Collection polishes is consistent. I believe two coats would be optimal for shorter nail lengths. The pearl finish showed brushstrokes during application and they softened as the color dried. I love the glow of these shades!
Nubar Mali Blue, Sky Sparkle, 2010 and the star crystals were sent to me for review. These products can be purchased at bynubar.com.
Happy painting, ladies!
