Fly, Hot Air Balloon

I’ve been trying to find the right design to use for this gorgeous orange holographic polish (Shinespark Polish’s Poppy Topaz) and somehow it kept not happening for me. I thought for sure I’d get to it in October, but it didn’t fit any of the Halloween designs I wanted most to paint. Then I thought I’d manage it in November, but I hardly posted any nail art that month.

So I’m using it now, in April, even though it’s such a rich shade I would not have thought to use it for spring. Turns out that, while I feel like I should apologize to the nail art community for my lack of season-appropriate colors, I’m just in love with having it on my nails.

I apparently really like to pair orange with things flying in the sky as proven by last year’s kite nail art.

Products Used

Base Polishes:
Shinespark Polish’s Poppy Topaz and Sinful Colors’ “Rorange
Stamping Polishes:
Born Pretty’s “Orange Autumn” (press sample), Color Club’s “Cosmic Fate“, and Mundu de Unas’ “Geranium
Stamping Plates:
Born Pretty BP-L042 (hot air balloon) and BP-L055 (“Fly” and birds)

I’m calling the hot air balloon a double stamping, but in reality it’s a triple stamp. I tried using the “Poppy Topaz” as a stamping polish, but it wasn’t opaque enough so I ended up having to go back with an orange Color Club polish, “Cosmic Fate“, instead. I really should use more of my Color Club holos for delicious holographic stamping.
