So much to do! The past week seems to have fluttered by. The hints of spring in the weather have me wishing for the company of butterflies.
I stamped the butterflies from plate H6 using Konad pastel blue special polish. Varying the placement, I let them flutter on my nails. Choosing turquoise pearls to embellish the upper wings, I then added a blue bead to form the face of the butterfly. Rainbow blue diamonds sparkle as the lower wings. These diamonds are challenging to apply. I used a tiny dab of Konad special topcoat over dry polish to adhere the diamonds. Then I sealed them with two layers of topcoat.
H&M Mambo is purple. If the shade looks blue, your monitor is being a trickster!
Mambo is a rich purple cream. The formula was a bit pesky, but workable. The thin consistency required three coats for opacity. I initially tried two coats with a touch up on several of my nails. I noticed cuticle pull when I added topcoat only on the nails showing two coats. You can achieve a lovely manicure with three coats. I hope my experiments help you get the best of Mambo.
The sun was so lovely today. I am looking forward to the emergence of flowers and the presence of colorful, winged creatures.
H&M Mambo was a gift from the beautiful Nathalie at jellynat.blogspot.com. Many thanks!
