Hot Pink Flower manicure

Hi everyone!


Neon and hot pink... way out of my comfort zone! But being the sweet wife that I am (when it's convenient ;) I added Glam Polish Unforgettable Dream to my shopping basket when my husband said he liked 'that pink one' and this is what happened after it arrived:

indoors, no flash
Unforgettable Dream has to be one of the brightest polishes I have in my stash, hot pink and packed with blue shimmery bits. It made people look at my nails everywhere I came and even the butcher commented on them! It is sold exclusively at Hypnotic Polish and if you are interested, don't wait too long to buy it since it's a limited edition and once it's gone, it's gone forever...

Unforgettable Dream was certainly a dream to apply. It has a jelly base to allow the flecks to shine through and it was completely opaque in three thin, fast drying coats. It didn't dry to a glossy finish, but a ever so slightly textured matte that you can see in the picture below... gorgeous!

indoors, no flash - no top coat
I added a coat Seche Vite to help me correct any oopsies while stamping. I really should have taken a picture of the top coated polish as it darkened a little bit and the shimmer popped beautifully... but I immediately went on to stamp flowers with Illamasqua Scorn and Born Pretty plate BP-20. I finished with another coat of Seche Vite to make sure those flowers are still on my nails tomorrow morning. It's not as bright anymore but this way I can wear it to work tomorrow without getting frowned upon ;)

Here are the contributors to my nails:

Would you wear a bright color like this, even though it's winter and cold and gloomy and basically anything but nice outside?



Since this is as close to a neon as I'll ever come, I figured it would be good for challenge 18 (Neon) of the SBB Nail Challenge and number 12 (Flowers) as well, so here's the updated list:



And I think it will do for the N.A.I.L. Linkup challenge as well, as it was Hot Pink :)

Glam Polish Unforgettable Dream was bought from Hypnotic Polish.

  1. Lovely design and the color looks great on you, in case that tempts you to step out of your comfort zone more often! I would absolutely wear hot pink. My big challenge would be choosing which one from my collection!! :)
