Creative musings in bright colors

Sapphire Crown

This I love. I actually love this so much I’m considering duplicating it for my wedding (but in purple. Maybe use the same grey base? I don’t know). Its just elegant but twirly and so pretty!

The base is another new-to-me Emily de Molly polish. I am buying them in DROVES. Its ridiculous. This one is Crystal Crown (hence the title of this post), and its a pretty soft grey with golden-green shimmer and a linear holo flare in direct light. The holo is not in-your-face, and neither is the shimmer, but both are visible. It is, if anything, a bit darker than I was expecting (I was going for almost-white) but it is pretty! And maybe work appropriate? I did take 3 coats for good coverage, but dried fast.

I added top coat and double stamped. The first stamp, which I am including one picture of because it was so pretty even if it was really subtle, was just a bunch of curlicues from Bundle Monster plate 607. I stamped with tone-on-tone grey, using WOW #333. You really can barely see it but it is stunning!

I added a second curly stamp using Bundle Monster 314 (probably my favorite stamp among everything I own. I’ve used it at least 5 times) and a dark blue polish Midnight Swim by Maybelline. I rotated which part of the (admittedly small) stamp area I picked up, and rotated where it went on the nail.

I was debating stamping with either a dark pink or black, and I am so glad I picked the blue. It’s such a cool look!

  2. I love this! Not usually a fan of greys but this is so soft and pretty. The tone on tone stamping is a lovely touch 😃
