Rub-on stickers and Fimo Flowers!

Hi Kids!
For those of you who are still looking for a very pretty, soft but sassy shade of melon/coral/apricot  for summer, I encourage you to locate and purchase Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Sunrise Sunset.
Being a build-able color, this is nothing short of awesome. First coat is semi sheer melon, softly glowing with apricot, and sprinkled with a slight green shimmer. Each coat after enhances opaqueness, but still retains an overall softness. Aptly named, this polish glows like Sunrise and Sunset, but in a very subtle and delicate way. Soooo pretty- and I love it bunches.

I wore 2 coats of Sunrise Sunset as my NOTD yesterday, and added some craft rub-on stickers last night. I had less than desirable results with the rub-ons, due to the stiffness of the plastic backing, so I added whole and cut up (w/cuticle scissors) fimo flowers to help save my mani. To keep the fimo slices from looking too chalky, I gave them a coat of CND Crimson and Jade Sparkle, and topped it all off with 1 thick coat of Seche.

Macro setting on my camera picked up the demarcation edge of the rub-ons- irl these edges are not noticeable at all. All pic are clickable.


















































Pretty color all by itself...

That's a beautiful shade of polish.  I'm so excited because I actually have this polish.  Found at the Dollar Store last year.  Now all I need is your talent to make a beautiful manicure.  A beautiful garden on your fingertips.  Makes my day.

You truly make it seem so simple with your presentation but I find this topic to be truly something which I believe I would never understand. It seems too complicated and really broad for me. I'm searching forward for your next publish, I will try to obtain the hang of it!

Very beautiful, as always.
Where did you get the fimo flowers from? All the fimos I have seen are really thick, these look pretty thin (which I like).

Hi Nessa! These fimo flowers came in a multi wheel from Sally's. The thickness of these slices were really inconsistent. The green pieces on my index nail are from the same green flower that's on my middle nail.
