Originally, I was planning on an orange mani for #31DC2017 (Inspired by a Color). But the greatest number of untried polishes I have seems to be in the pink/red family so I picked Colores de Carol’s “Cupid’s Vacation” for my inspiration. It’s this gorgeous pink holographic polish with a few metallic blue flecks. The flecks inspired me to do my stamping in blue. Then I took #NailsUnitedSeptChallenge prompt of Bee and this gorgeous image of a bee lady with a little bucket flying over the flowers from 2Joy’s stamping plate and that was my mani planned out for me. I found some loosely matching flowers on my Ejiubas plate and got to work.
- Base Polishes:
Colores de Carol’s “Cupid’s Vacation” and prototype (blue)
- Stamping Polishes:
KleanColor’s “Metallic Blue” (stained my stampers and bled on the decal! Boo!)
- Advanced Stamping Polishes:
KleanColor’s “Metallic Aqua” and Sinful Colors’ Neon Collection “Bright to the Point”
- Stamping Plates:
2Joy 028 (bee lady and flowers on middle and ring finger), Ejiubas + Sarah R1 (lilies on index and pinkie fingers)
This really is such a lovely color. I’d say I can’t believe how long it’s taken me to use it, but then I know how much nail polish I have. 😉 You might wonder which pictures are truer to the shade. I’d say the cooler more magenta-leaning nails are what this polish looks like in artificial light and the macro shots that look warmer resemble the polish in daylight.
