Today's manicure was created between naps. I managed to contract a second bout of the flu. With the help of a homeopathic, I am healing quickly. What I really needed for wellness was to entertain myself. This manicure was designed to bring a feeling of summer to a cold, rainy weekend and mix in a bit of kitsch and whimsy. For the majestic pink water birds and their tacky representation as lawn art, this manicure pays tribute.
From image plate T02, I stamped the flamingos using Konad black special polish. I chose an Art Club striper in turquoise glitter to highlight the pool of water in the design. A pink marquis rhinestone adds ornamentation to the wing.
To make this look even more eye catching, use your imagination to brighten up the color. Nubar Honeysuckle is a hot pink neon. Digital cameras can't capture the vibrancy of neon polishes.
My experience with Nubar's neon formula was delightful. I painted three coats of Honeysuckle for perfect opacity. This is the first time in recent memory I have been able to wear a neon without layering it over a whitening base coat. The Nubar formula is more opaque and easier to apply than those from other brands. I would love to try more of their neon shades.
I hope my pink flamingos brought you happiness. I have been wearing this look outside my apartment and amusing other city dwellers in the course of my day.
Honeysuckle was sent to me for review. This polish is part of the upcoming Spring Garden Collection, soon to be available at bynubar.com.
