On Holiday: BB Couture Hemera

Hello ladies,

Shading myself with an ivory lace parasol, I journeyed across town wearing an orange sun dress and a silk scarf draped over my shoulders. I ran into a friend walking his greyhound and he remarked that I looked like a "Victorian British woman on holiday in India".  I had to create a manicure for such a sentiment!

Using Konad white special polish, I repurposed a French tip design from Bundle Monster plate 220. I placed a white button pearl from Art Club in the center of each stylized chrysanthemum. The sparkly line was formed with an Art Club striper in Gold Glitter. I arranged the following ornaments along the diagonal: orange jewel, peach pearl, yellow jewel, golden pearl. 

A tiny bee visited rested on the rose.

Look at the gorgeous shimmer in the bottle!

A flower ring and an owl ring. 

Hemera is a gorgeous, warm coral shimmer. The silvery, white sparkle appears icy like a frozen treat. The color reminds me of gourmet gelato. I am showing four coats here, but I wore this shade for a day with only two. I think three would bring opacity for those with active length nails. Hemera is semi-sheer and easy to apply.

This manicure makes me want to ride on the back of a fancy, well cared for elephant.  How about you?

The Art Club materials and BB Couture polish were sent to me for review. Hemera is part of the
A Touch of Greece Collection/Ladies available for purchase at

Happy painting, ladies!


  1. I like this manicure a lot! The coral and the gold go so good together ^__^

  2. Biba: Thanks so much, sweetie!

    Zara: Thank you! So glad you like the look! :)

    Akuma Kanji: Thanks! I love the warm, sunny tones together.

  3. You should show your special outfits. I can just imagine how lovely you look. This is a very different look. I like the stripe on the diagonal. Beautiful polish shade. Fits in well with the hot weather in India.

  4. Haha, that's amusing. Lovely rings!
