I had a really beautiful dream about my grandmother. I dreamt that I opened a door to a room filled with a mix of her belongings and toys from my childhood. It was really fascinating to revisit the memories of her bedroom, to open mahogany drawers filled with her linens, to see the flowers she embroidered on doilies and table runners. There was a shelf with my dolls and stuffed animals as fresh and new as the day they were given to me as a child.
Keeping the memory of the dream with me throughout the day, I wanted to create a look with an antique feel. I started with Nubar Chiffon. I stamped the flowers from plate M31 in Konad white special polish. I placed a pearl in the center of each flower, and a mirror rhinestone and white rainbow heart at the top of the design.

Nubar Chiffon was perfectly opaque in two coats. The application was wonderful. Chiffon is an on trend taupe for fall. It has a purple undertone that would make it work with a variety of palettes. It's a classic, neutral shade worth owning.
I hope you enjoyed my dreamlike manicure.
