Today's post, for my second Swatch'n Saturday is China Glaze's Blue Bells Ring. This polish is hands down my favourite Blue polish and I have quite the collection. Being from Vancouver I am constantly on the hunt for the perfect Canucks blue, so over the years I have accumulated quite a few. I had a mix emotion of pride and guilt the other day when I used my new China Glaze app to colour match my jersey, I actually owned all 18 suggestions.
The reason why I chose this beautiful metallic cobalt blue is because tonight was Earth Hour and I thought the colour would make the perfect base for a earth themed mani. My Earth Hour was pretty uneventful, after a busy day at the salon and a dark apartment I was out for the count, I fell asleep by 8:35.
This design is super simple and the combo of metallic polishes looks great together. I started with my Blue Bells Ring Base, then using my small dotting tool and my darker green polish I added in random earth like shapes over the nails. Then with a softer golden green I added some minor detail to the center of the green I previously painted. The two shades I used are from China Glaze's Bohemian Collection. The darker colour is Unpredictable and the other is Rare and Radient both stunning shades. To finish off the design I used my Black instant Artist paint ant outlined the cuticle area, this created a more rounded earth like shape on the nail.
I love this design, it is a combo of two of things I'm most passionate about, which are preserving our earth and nail art. I hope you like them as much as I do!
