Elegant Blue Manicure

People always associate spring with pastel colors, but this beautiful blue really appealed to me, especially because it has been raining quite a bit over the last few days.  I drew my inspiration from my color palette for this manicure.

Mood in blue. From left to right: Fathom by Formula X for Sephora, #19 from Ya Qin An, and Evolve by Divergent.

I started by painting all my nails with Fathom.

I added an iridescent sheen to the base color with a coat of Evolve.

I stamped on a pretty filigree border vertically on my index and ring fingers using a design from plate BP-35 from Born Pretty Store.

I used the topmost design in the lower left hand quadrant of this plate.

A very easy and simple manicure by itself, and yes, I intentionally did not stamp the border in the same place on both nails.

I finished by gluing a few pearl rhinestones haphazardly to my other fingers with Kiss Nail Art Glue.

I think the look is very pretty and understated for the season.  I do hope we start getting warmer temperatures again soon, though!

Happy polishing!
