Today I created a refreshing manicure with a purple and pink jelly polish from Diamond Cosmetics. Twilight Violet reminds me so much of berry sorbet. I had a mix of inspiration for this look. I was initially thinking about rainbow sprinkles over ice cream. I also was considering the name of the polish. I visualized flowers in half light and the emergence of stars. The temperature cools at twilight. If you add a cup full of berry sorbet, it becomes cooler still.
The flowers look a bit like decals, but each jewel and pearl was applied individually. I started with the flower image from Bundle Monster plate BM03. I chose Konad blue pearl special polish for stamping. A colored pearl was added to the center of each flower. I then alternated colors of the petal shaped rhinestones. Twilight Violet reflects blue and pink shimmer. I selected gems to complement the sparkle.
The majority of the photos were taken in full sun. I added a few pictures with diffuse light so you could see the soft glow of Twilight Violet.
Giant hibiscus flower! A bush full of these blooms is an amazing sight! The flowers are about the size of dinner plates.
Just walking by...I saw this little bunny in so many places all over the garden. I think he was following me.
I painted three coats of Twilight Violet for perfect opacity. Shorter nails may only need two coats. The color applied beautifully. I am especially fond of the formula of Diamond Cosmetics jelly finishes and shimmers. The ones I have tried are practically flawless.
I know there a quite a few of you who are Twilight series fans. Are any of you interested in purchasing this polish for the name alone? Or does the similarity to berry sorbet compel your interest?
