In honor of the Perseid shooting stars which I didn’t get to see here in Japan, here’s a celestial manicure. I only wore this for a bit because the little acrylic stars were just begging to be picked off.
I did a basecoat with Nubar Wildlife, from the recent Nubar collection. It’s a duochrome, medium warm green flashing warmish orange with a touch of copper. This was my first bottle of Nubar, and I was very impressed. No streaks, looked good in two solid coats, and very duochromey.
I had a bottle of Pa nail polish with confetti moons, stars and hearts, but it just did not want to cooperate with me. My plan was to just use that as a topcoat, but I couldn’t get an even application of the confetti with the brush alone. Usually, I’d get a toothpick and fish out the confetti, but it’s late here and I’m tired. Too much work! So I stuck on some plastic rhinestone stars and some yellow round confetti baubles.
Here’s a typically teeny bottle of Pa nail polish:
I painted the tips with a silver glitter (China Glaze Tinsel?) and voila! My own shooting stars!
Did anyone see the real thing?
