The One With Sally Hansen Bourbon Belle, Sundown Socialite, and Sunflowers!

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing today?  It's Saturday, I'm kind of under the weather, so that means I'm going to rest up all weekend.  It really hasn't been my week.  On Wednesday I fell at work injuring my knee, so I've been living in a knee brace for the past two days.  My saving grace is that it's cooler out so I don't have to wear that thing in the brutal heat.  Finally Fall is here though.  It was such a wonderful Fall day yesterday, so I'm hoping I feel better today so I can enjoy it.

Today I have two more polishes to share with you from the Sally Hansen Sunset Splash collection from the Miracle Gel Line.  Have I mentioned how excited I am to be apart of the #SallySquad??  Bourbon Belle and Sundown Socialite are perfect summer to fall transition polishes.  As soon as I saw them, I knew what nail art I was going to do with them. 

But first, a swatch!

Above is two coats of Bourbon Belle.  A beautiful dusty peach polish.  Now I'm sure not everyone will call it dusty, but to me it's not as bright as a normal peach, therefore I think it's dusty.

I then grabbed the duochrome Sundown Socialite and dry brushed it over Bourbon Belle, and goodness was I in love.  Part of me wanted to swatch the whole thing over it, but after seeing the dry brush I was obsessed.  I need to use it though on it's own ASAP.

Nowwwww, for the nail art....SUNFLOWERS!

Every year I do a sunflower manicure.  Usually I do it over a royal blue polish, but these two polishes together were calling to me to use them for a base for some sunflowers.  At first, I wasn't too happy because the back orange petals seemed to disappear on the base, but once I added hte yellow petals, the details in the center, and added the top coat, I truly was in love.  To me, this is the perfect end of summer design.

What do you think?  Like this manicure?  Like the polishes?

Until next time, <3.
