Before & After: Cloudy Grapes

Hello!!

With this post I'm going a little bit out of my comfort zone again, with a milky glitter. These aren't my favorite type of glitters, but this one just called to me. This is The Polish Bar Cloudy Skies, a soft lilac creme base with purple and white glitters ranging from eensy-beensy to medium-large:

Back when my cuticles were really bad, please just focus on the polish...>.<



I wanted to embrace the play of the white mixed into this polish, so I decided to go for an image normally associated with purple, but stamped with white; so I used images from Bundle Monster BM05 and Red Angel RA115, with Konad White polish:





I love that this stamping lets the base polish shine through, despite being a bold set of images. I should also say that I loved this polish because it applied so beautifully, it was like it didn't even have glitter in it. :)

Thanks for taking a look; tomorrow I'll be bringing you a design straight from the 1970s...:)

Hugs and love,
M.
