It seems like many of us have been greeted by icy winds today. I was thinking about the grey overtaking the blue sky. Ashley, my favorite cafe barista, said my manicure reminded her of the ice thawing in Spring and the flowers coming out of the earth. Perhaps my internal optimism was at work in creating this look.
I began with Color Club Soft as Cashmere for a base. From Konad plate S9, I stamped the flowers in blue pearl special polish. I chose turquoise rhinestones from Bundle Monster. These are slightly larger than the size that typically appears on my nails. I created a curved glitter French using Covered in Diamonds. I followed the shape of the stamping design along the side of the nail.

Soft as Cashmere required three coats for opacity. The color is a pretty, warm grey with beige undertones. Covered in Diamonds is a must have for those who love layering notes. Its icy sparkle is perfect for winter manicures.
If you are in Australia, feel free to share stories of your warm temperatures. It will be like wrapping around an extra scarf.
Color Club Soft as Cashmere and Covered in Diamonds were sent to me for review. These polishes are part of the Untamed Luxury Collection, available for purchase at victoriasnailsupply.com.
Happy painting, ladies!
