Here’s a simple and striking manicure that’s evocative of the colours in a warm summer sunset, kind of like the ones I am fortunate enough to frequently enjoy from one of my two balconies. Tonight’s sun has very nearly set, but here’s a pretty picture from a couple of weeks ago. My city enjoys some of North America’s best sunsets; it’s an added bonus that I can just glance out my kitchen window and see this:
For these nails, I layered ILNP’s The Road to Awe, a green-to-gold-to-fuchsia-to-purple chromatic flakie topper, over KB Shimmer’s Soul Deep, a deep, blue-black creme.

Beautiful polish! Did you mention in an earlier post that you live in Ottawa or am I mixing it up? That view sure looks lile you could be there 🙂
No, I did mention that – probably a bunch, actually! But yes, that’s an Ottawa sunset all right. Are you Ottawa-ish as well?
Yup, that’s where I am!
Neat! It’s always cool finding another Canuck, let alone an Ottawan (is that what we’re called?) I’ve lived here my whole life – you?
I’ve only been living here a couple of years 🙂
Stunning! Wow, the layering effect really looks like a sunset. I’ll have to try some layering to see what I can come up with! (I still need to do a ILNP haul)
Yes, do it! They’re so lovely – one of those collections I’d just give an unequivocal yes to. 🙂
Love the inspiration picture and the polish, so good!!!
