Visions of Sugar Plums!

The lovely Rachel, at Creative Nail Design, is an absolute doll for sending me the new Plum Truffle Collection to try out!  It's a set of two separate colors, one beautiful creme plum base color, and a really pretty light pinkish plum sparkle effect color.

Here is the Plum Truffle color on it's own:



Even without the Plum Truffle Effect, it's a gorgeous color - especially for the holidays!  Here is the Plum Truffle Effect:



I really like the way that this pair works together.  The sparkle effect was really nice and eye catching, and it complimented the deep plum, without over powering it.

After applying, I had to rush out the door to take my eight year old to his Cub Scout meeting, when tragedy struck ... my car door handle attacked me:


Perhaps you caught it on the evening news: Crazed Atlanta woman goes on ramage while screaming about finger nail assassination conspiracy plot.

So, after I mentally took a sledge hammer to my car, I cut my nails down.  *sob*  Then I decided to have a little more fun with the Plum Truffle Collection.  I applied two coats of the Effect polish, and used the base color polish with Red Angel plate RA-107.  After stamping, I applied one more coat of the Effect, and then one coat of SV.


To be honest, I really like this collection.  It's the best kind of color combo: one that works together, and one that can stand alone.  I'm really looking forward to seeing what else I can come up with using these!!  

Happy Painting!!!
