Sonoma Nail Art presents Sonoma Sunset

I am so excited to show off one of the polishes in my upcoming line of Sonoma County themed nail polishes: Sonoma Sunset! This is a lavender, pink, blue, and purple glittery lacquer that reminds me of the dusty purple sunsets in Sonoma County.

I am really happy with how this polish turned out! There is a bit of a blue/purple shimmer in the base of the polish besides being packed with lots of beautiful glitter.

I started with a base of OPI Dutch Ya Just Love OPI? Pardon the messiness of this pic, I wanted to top it with my glitter polish before cleaning everything up.

I topped the OPI shade with one coat of Sonoma Sunset, and then sealed everything with two coats of Seche Vite. 

Here's a shot of my nails outdoors. The colors really blend together to create an interesting overall lavender hue. And it is really packed with glitter, so you just need one coat for great coverage.

Closeup of my thumbnail. You can see the shimmery blue/purple base which ties all of the colors of glitter together. 

And here is a shot of the bottle. I will be selling this as part of my Sonoma Nail Art polish collection. I will start selling at a local shop in Healdsburg (I'll tell you exactly where soon), and also sell them online on etsy. I plan on opening my etsy shop in May or June. In the meantime, keep an eye out for previews of the other polishes in the Sonoma Nail Art collection. I will probably do a big giveaway to celebrate the opening of my etsy store, yay! I'd love to hear what you think of this polish.

    1. Thank you Marsha! I really wanted it to be a one coater and look good over another polish without having to deal with multiple coats.

  2. The only thing I think I'd enjoy more than this Sonoma Sunset polish you created is to be with you looking at the beautiful Sonoma Sunset while wearing the polish and having some wine! Or maybe even eating one of your cute bento box creations!
