Gemini: BB Couture Nike

Hello ladies,

With the sun in Gemini, I was thinking about twin symbols. I decided to create a mirror image look with a motif of reflective elements. 

Using Konad pastel blue special polish, I stamped the French floral design from Bundle Monster plate BM 212. I alternated the jewel placement every other nail with a shifting of fuschia and blue. I painted a thin line French with an Art Club striper in turquoise glitter. The finished manicure reminds me of Art Nouveau. 









A gorgeous purple foil, Nike has winning shimmer. Two coats will bring opacity, but three displays a true richness of color. Nike is a must have for those who love purple!  

I hope you enjoyed my bejeweled, mirror image floral. 

Nike was sent to me for review. This shade is part of the A Touch of Greece Collection/Ladies, available for purchase at overallbeauty.com.

Happy painting, ladies!
