NOTD: Rose Bush

4 years ago

This is the manicure I wore over the weekend. I wanted, originally, to create a blue on blue manicure. I wanted the background to be a soft blue and then have deeper or brighter blue roses all over the top. As I was grabbing the polishes, however, I spotted a purple that I thought would be pretty mixed in. The purple did something I have seen VERY few polishes do... it kind of sunk into the base the longer it sat. When I first put it on it was just as vibrant and defined as the blue. After a few minutes I noticed it was almost reacting like water colors: becoming lighter and blurred at the edges. I can`t be entirely sure why the purple reacted like that. It is the same brand and finish as the blue. The blue is still crisp and clean. Now I know, though, that the purple is not one that I`ll be using as the stamping polish. :-(
WHAT I`M WEARING: -1 coat of Sally Hansen Hard as Nails -2 coats of Essie Bikini So Teeny -Bundle Monster plate BM 323 with Pure Ice Silver Mercedes for the lace -Mash plate Mash 36 with Sinful Colors Midnight Blue, Let`s Talk, and Last Chance for the roses -1 coat of Seche Vite We had a family get together over the weekend (a belated fourth of july get together) and I got several compliments on the manicure and one family member curious about how I went about doing my nails. It is always an interesting conversation trying to explain to someone who likes doing their nails but has never heard of nail stamping. She seemed to catch on a lot quicker than some others I have discussed it with, though. Over all, I like this manicure. I wish the purple flowers didn`t do their strange fading effect as it sat, but lesson learned; I won`t use that polish to stamp my images in the future.
