Candied flowers: BB Couture Plums and Sugar

Hello ladies,

I have a simple and sweet manicure for you today. The drifts of snow made me long for the white petals of Spring. The blossoms and pearls look sugared on my nails, like candied flowers.

With Konad white special polish, I stamped the delicate flowers from design plate H28. I alternated the design placement. I added pale blue, lavender and cream pearls to the flowers centers. The pearls remind me of candy buttons.

Don't let your monitor engage in any trickery. BB Couture Plums and Sugar is purple!

Above are pictures of my niece Shannon in her tutu before her performance in the Nutcracker. As part of a local ballet troupe, she performed with the international touring Donetsk Ballet Co. from Russia. Shannon just turned 15. Isn't she beautiful?

Plums and Sugar is completely opaque in two coats. The application of this polish is salon perfect. The color is amazing as well. Red micro glitter along with blue and silver shimmer mingle in a purple base. Plums and Sugar is one of my favorite purples from any brand. Truly gorgeous and worth seeking out!

I hope this manicure and the ballerina added some sweetness to your day.

  7. Wow, that's so gorgeous! It's so beautiful, the flowers remind me of floaty, ethereal things (lol, I'm very vague) and I love how it's stamped on a darker base, not a light one. I need to copy your mani ;)
