This post is part of a series of manicures inspired by the holiday windows in NYC! I hope you enjoy!
The mannequins in the Saks Fifth Ave holiday windows are hard at work making bubbles in a sparkly underground cave! Each window is alive with various pulleys and spinning wheels. One couture bubblemaker even rides through the windows on a Victorian high wheel bicycle.
I chose the deep blue in the sparkly caves and the bubbles as inspiration for this manicure.
Totally wearable, right? Essie "Dive Bar" is the perfect deep, shimmery blue. I then added a layer of Inglot's blue flaky 204 and dotted Essie "Shine of the Times" to create an iridescent effect (like bubbles!). Finally, I scattered my "bubbles" - small iridescent seed beads. Globs of Seche top coat did the trick, as it is thick and sticky enough to grab onto the seed beads.
The best part of Saks holiday celebration is viewed across the street from Rockefeller Center! Every 15 minutes or so, giant bubbles and snowflakes are projected onto the side of Saks in a 3D light spectacular. It's unlike anything else in the city!
