I love the brilliant skies in January. The blue is such a contrast to the snow, that has settled in drifts and patches throughout center city. Putting on my grey boots today, I was thinking about embroidered peasant skirts: the bright gauzy cotton sewn with flowers, beads and small mirror circles. I love wearing skirts like this in the summer, to walk about the dahlias and blend among their colors. I decided to create the look of folk art flowers in a winter palette of blue and white.
With Konad white special polish, I stamped the flowers from Born Pretty plate M64. I used an Art Club striper in turquoise glitter to highlight the floral design. A large blue gem was placed in the center of each flower. White mirror circles from Art Club and blue pearls add further interest.
This glowing blue has a neon base stirred with tiny shimmer particles. It's Electrifying awakens with topcoat. I wasn't prepared for the beauty of this polish! I am showing three coats for perfect opacity. The neon formula is fast drying. I love that It's Electrifying can be worn without a whitening base coat and no worry of having a visible nail line. I would like Diamond Cosmetics to create more shimmering neons including a pin up red and a medium purple hue.
I hope you enjoyed my bright winter manicure!
