I created a healing manicure for my sister, Claire. Yesterday, she was released from the hospital after a very delicate and rarely performed spinal surgery. The recovery will be long, necessitating many months of physical therapy. I am really thankful she has the opportunity to regain her health after so many trials and so much uncertainty. The image of the phoenix is in harmony with her experience. I worked with a blue palette, her favorite color.
From T02, I stamped the phoenix in blue Konad special polish. I placed a blue disc from Bundle Monster, a pale blue pearl and royal blue jewel to adorn the tail. Since my sister loves to watch the Moon rising over the creek near her home, I accentuated the curve of the design with a blue Moon rhinestone . If you are having trouble seeing the phoenix, note its head is turned with its beak pointing towards its wing.
Such a pretty shade! Blue Hydrangea is a sweet pastel with a glossy, pearl shimmer. I painted three coats for opacity, but those with more active length nails would find two suitable. For lovers of blue, this color is worth adding to your collection.
I hope you enjoyed my blue phoenix manicure. For my sister and those who are sisters of my heart, I am sure you will understand its significance.
Blue Hydrangea was sent to me for review. This polish can be found within the Spring Garden Collection, available for purchase at bynubar.com.
