Philadelphia has been beset by much needed rain. I spent the majority of the afternoon indoors. Something about being at home made me consider fine china place settings. Taupe and white form a modern palette. When I created this look, I imagined tiny flowers on porcelain.
From design plate H39, I stamped the flowers using Konad white pearl special polish. I added Marquis rhinestones to ornament the closed buds. I alternated positioning of pearls and rainbow crystals. When repeating a stamping design over ten nails, a slight change in gem placement can add movement.
A strand of amethyst over a violet purple scarf creates the backdrop.
I adore the retro label!
Two coats of Posh Polish brought opacity. Application was tricky. The formula seemed a little thicker than I would have liked. I am always hesitant to add thinner to a new bottle of polish, especially my first time working with a brand. I used Nubar Diamont topcoat, which smoothed beautifully over the taupe creme, adding a glassy finish.
I am pleased with the final manicure. Posh Polish is a skin flattering taupe. There is a hint of purple in the base color. I was stopped by a woman who loved the shade and wanted to know the name of the polish. It was fun to say!
Posh Polish was sent to me for review. This shade can be purchased at eyeko.com.
