I have two great polishes for you. No glitter or sparkles today. Instead, I have two soft neutrals that are versatile and appropriate for all occasions. One is a cream, the other is a sheer pearlescent.
The first polish I want to show you today is one that I bought just because of the name. It's a beautiful soft blush cream called Rue. Usually the color draws you to a polish, followed by other attributes, but I never considered the color of this polish until I got to the counter and really looked at it. I thought, "Hmm, this might be cute". And it is. The name attracted me because of the Hunger Games character, Rue. I'm a Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Divergent fan (Yes, I admit to enjoying a few YA books) and anything that relates to my favorite book/movie series is a definite no-brainer for me.
For this design I used Born Pretty stamping plate BP-13 and Your Touch by China Glaze.
Jolie is a sheer pearlescent ivory polish. I used three or four coats to achieve this look and you can still see a hint of a smile line peeking through. To avoid having a visible smile line, you can use a white base coat. However, it works perfectly as a sheer top coat to tone down an otherwise overpowering polish. I used a gold stamping polish (probably Konad Gold) for the design. Tomorrow we'll look at a couple more neutrals. Ciao for now.
