Last night, I had my first experience with thundersnow. It was strange hearing the sky boom and crackle while the snow descended. I think the air made me crave a soft glitter topcoat and silver roses. This look would make a pretty Valentine, no matter what the weather.
From Born Pretty plate M11, I stamped the roses with a franken I made from Konad silver special polish and China Glaze Millennium. I detailed the leaves and stems with the striper from the Nubar two way nail art pen in Emeralds.
Pekin is a dark cherry red. This morning I slipped my hand into a bag of cherries and my nails were instantly camouflaged. I am wearing three coats of Pekin. The formula, somewhere between a jelly and a creme, has a quick dry time. This vampy red is tremendously glossy.
I added a layer of Pixie Dust to create a soft sparkle. Pixie Dust is one of those layering notes that can instantly beautify just about any manicure.
I hope you enjoyed the rose bouquet for snowy weather.
Nubar Pekin and Pixie Dust were sent to me for review. Pekin is part of the Finest Silks Collection while Pixie Dust can be found in the Holiday Jewel Basket. Both shades are available for purchase at bynubar.com.
