Monday Blues: China Glaze Kinetic Candy

Hello my lovelies! Today's post is about a beautiful blue polish that is meant to make you feel better on this gloomy Monday. After yesterday's heat came the storms and it's raining outside as we speak. Nothing like a nice pastel blue to cheer us up!

Kinetic Candy is one of the Spring 2012 pastels from the Electropop collection. It's a beautiful shade of light blue, that leans slightly turquoise. It's definitely the lightest blue I have in my collection and it's such a delicate color. You could almost say it's office friendly. 

Application is a little tricky with this one. It's pigmented enough to be opaque in just two coats, but the consistency is on the thicker side so I had some streaks left after application. It dries shiny but I had to use top coat to level it out. I also wanted to stamp something over it so I chose a 60's theme with the combo of blue and brown. I stamped using Ch14 and S-he Stylezone 500. 

The taupe color didn't stamp very well so the flowers came out a little splotchy. I would love to find a brown polish that stamps well. I like the combo of blue and brown a lot. 

I hope your week will be a good one! Check out the other lovely ladies participating in the Monday Blues challenge:
