Stripes and dots on light blue

Nail polish of the day for me is a pastel blue creme Sugar Rush by Sinful Colors. It’s a perfect background color, so instead of swatching it I decided to built a manicure around it:

Sinful Colors Sugar Rush

The color comes from the Sugar Rush collection for Spring 2013. In the pictures I am wearing two coats of Sugar Rush, the collection’s namesake, over ORLY Nail Defense clear base. I also needed a top coat to smooth the surface because of the design.

The stripes, stitches and dots are hand painted. Here’s the list of nail polishes that I needed for the design:

  • Sinful Colors Sugar Rush – a light blue background
  • Max Factor Cobalt Blue – dark blue stripes
  • OPI Alpine Snow – white stitches and dots
  • Golden Rose Rich Color #05 – beige stripes
  • Sinful Colors Sweet Nothing – teal stripes
  • Sally Hansen Coral Reef – coral stripes

Thank you for looking! I hope you liked the design :)

PS: I’d love to say a huge thank you to sweet Anutka who sent me this polish, as well as some other truely amazing shades by ULTA and Sinful Colors (unfortunately both brands are not available here)! Lots of smiles and hugs to you dear ♥

      Thank you Maria :)

  3. This is such a cute look. The colors are perfect together and I love how you chose to only do stripes on part of the nail so you could still see the background color. Amazing!

      :)) This light blue is really amazing, I tried to leave it visible between the stripes :)
