More Birthday Nubar

Today I am wearing Nubar Purple Rain as I felt that this particular Sunday would not be complete without Prince's Purple Rain going through my head for hours and hours and hours.

Photos are all in natural light on an overcast, grey day.

Nubar Purple Rain is a gorgeous polish with a deep purple base and pink, purple and mutli-coloured glitter. Application was smooth and trouble-free and three coats were required to get a proper opaque finish. Lovely.

A Konading of flowers was next. Plate of the day was GCOCL G16 / K04, and the polishes used Stargazer Chrome 234 (pink) mixed with a spot of the white GCOCL polish (available from eBay). This worked out quite well - I'd had issues with the GCOCL polishes being a bit sheer, rubbery and hard to work with but they appear to work nicely when combined with other polishes.

For some reason my nails reminded me of hairdressers driving silver convertible Mercedes with tennis racquets scattered about the back seat and I went over it a couple of coats of ELF Matte Finisher. Also tried out a new finger pose, which was exciting.
