A Bumbling Bee

The awesome Rebecca from Hard Candy sent me two of the Just Nails polishes for me to try out!

It is actually kind of amusing - I was just talking to someone about how hard it is to find a really pretty yellow polish!  And now, thanks to Hard Candy, I have one!  Splendid is just that!  It is such a pretty and soft yellow!!  I absolutely adore it!  It isn't too thin, which is a common problem I have with yellows.

The End is a fantastic black that has a great patent like finish - super shiny!

I have some other Hard Candy polishes in my arsenal, so I thought I would use Sky with these two as well!  Sky is my favorite baby blue!  It's a beautiful color, with a light ice blue shimmer.

I used a detailing brush to paint the little bumble bee on my ring finger with Splendid.  Next, I used a striping brush with The End to create the bumble bee stripes, stinger, and antenna.  Then I used my dotting tool to create the polka dot pattern on my other nails.  I decided to use a blue glitter detail polish from Claire's to create the bee wings.  Finally, I finished it off with a coat of SV.

I absolutely love these two polishes, and will most definitely be using them a lot from now on!  Happy Painting!!!

Colors: Hard Candy Splendid, Hard Candy The End, Hard Candy Sky, Claire's Blue Glitter
