Creative musings in bright colors

Flowers and Pink

While wandering randomly through ULTA, I found a whole section of polish on 75% off sale. To be fair, all the polishes were in itsy bitsy bottles, but they were also under a dollar. Honestly, many of them were either very thick (from having never been closed properly I presume) or the pigment had separated spectacularly. One of them caught my eye though…a pink glass fleck glitter. So, voila!

The base is Passionate by PIXEL…a brand I have never heard of. The bottle is tiny (smaller than anything I have other than China Glaze minis) but the color is actually nice! This is two thin coats of Passionate. It reminds me of a lighter pink version of Allegra by Zoya (which is actually why I bought it).

The design was inspired by Dressed up Digits, who took a Born Pretty Store stamp that I happen to own and colored in the flowers! I ran with the idea and did pink and purple holo flowers using a whole bunch of Nabi polishes. I will say that the stamp works great! This is my second of three purple flower manis, the last will be next week. I told you I was doing a flower thing!

So, glittery pink and flowers! And I’m happy to add another glittery polish to my collection. Although the PIXEL bottle is tiiiiiiny, it does mean that I have another polish I can travel with easily.

    Did you color the flowers in once they were stamped on the nail?

    • Yup! The nabi holo polishes I used are somewhat sheer, so I just decided to quasi-leadlight. It meant some of the black lines got a tad bit wonky, but it was much faster than trying to make decals!
