Jewel Tone Jubilee

Hi everyone!  Today I wanted to go with something really jewel toned and fun that pops!


I started off with two coats of Deborah Lippmann Dream a Little Dream of Me, a really pretty sheer pink with s shimmer that shifts from blue-green to purple.


Next, I taped off the half moon sections at the top and applied one coat of Sensique Jewel of the Orient, a beautiful "blurple" with a nice pink to purple shimmer.  I adore this color, but it still didn't have that pop effect I was going for.


With my striping brush, I applied some vertical stripes of Hard Candy Frenzy, a really fun bright teal creme.


For a final bit of color, I went for one of my ultimate jewel tones, and, with my small dotting tool, I lined dots of Zoya Carly along the half moon.


I finished it all off with one coat of SV.


I really enjoyed creating this one!  All of my favorite elements were there!  I hope you all enjoy it too!!!

Happy Painting!
