This week's letter in the Llama Nails alphabet is 'R', and I decided to show you Revelrie in Rubellite.
I recently got extremely lucky and happened to stumble on a Hare Polish restock at Llarowe. Before I'd fallen in lust with several Hare Polishes, but only was able to get my hands on one, Oceans of Alloys. Several more restocks came and went, and though I tried to get to them in time, I failed miserably. So this time when almost every one I wanted was available, and while it stretched the edges of my budget, I grabbed a couple. I figured, who knows when I'll get a chance again to grab them again, and if they're anything like Oceans of Alloys in terms of quality, they'll be worth it.
One of the ones I grabbed was Revelrie in Rubellite, a dramatic combination of wine jelly base and burnt orange glitter. In a million years I never would have thought to put these two colors together, and wow, I'm so glad that Hare Polish did. Just stunning:
|Hare Polish Revelrie in Rubellite|
|Revelrie in Rubellite full on|
|Look at how the light dances off those glitter pieces...sigh...|
The formula on the polish was a bit trickier than Oceans of Alloys, but that may be due to the fact that I'm still learning how to apply jellies most effectively (I'm way better than I was!).
To decorate this, I decided I wanted to do a reverse-wisteria look, since the glitter itself reminds me of bunches of wisteria hanging down off of something. So instead of a flower handing down from leave, I thought I'd stamp leaves hanging down from flowers. I call it 'Revelrie In Reverse', lol. I stamped using Sally Hansen Lickety-Split Lime and Bundle Monster plate BM11:
|Tell me that background doesn't look like bunches of flowers...|
|Or, upside-down (right-side up?) if you prefer...:)|
Thank you for taking a look! Please check out the other 'R' manicures linked below. :)
