Polish off the Look with Cheery Blossoms

Polish off the look: Cheery BlossomsWe’re thrilled to have Product Development Design Assistant Van on the blog today with a bright, Cheery Blossoms-inspired tutorial to transform your manicure from mundane to merry.

Polish off the look: Cheery Blossoms

Van’s advice:

SUPPLIES.
You can use the thin brush provided with nail art-specific polishes or a small paintbrush.

SPARKLE SITUATION.
Let’s talk glitter. Make sure when picking a polish you select an option with both small and large glitter so you get depth. If your glitter polish is too runny, just add top coat into the bottle and shake it to thicken.

PREPARE.
Before you apply your base coat, buffer your nails and then clean with alcohol or water (not soap).

BE ON TOP OF IT.
After the base coat, apply top coat so the surface is smooth and easy to add artwork to. Let that dry for about 5-10 minutes before trying the rest of the steps.

Pumpkin Patterns

Vera Bradley Pumpkin StencilsTransform your squash from orange to outstanding just in time for trick-or-treating. Print these Laser-Cut inspired patterns and add a hint of Vera Bradley to your Halloween fun.

Stencil us in

1. Paint. Use a larger paintbrush to cover your entire pumpkin in a base color, if desired. Once your first coat is dry, cut the pattern out of the paper. Adhere the paper to your pumpkin and trace the design in pencil. Paint the pattern for a finished colorblock treat.

2. Carve. Cut around the top of your pumpkin and remove all pulp and seeds. Tape the print out to your pumpkin and use the dark pattern as a guide to carve out the design. (A pumpkin carving kit would be helpful.)

A Closer Look: Cheery Blossoms

Cheery Blossoms‘Tis the season for good cheer and, of course, color, and this newcomer arrives bearing both. Inspired by graphic blooms, Cheery Blossoms’ glittering floral centers resemble faceted stones, dressed in shades of garnet and ruby, and soft and bright pink. A graphite gray ground helps highlight the black and white. Styles in this print pair perfectly with new Tango Red and Classic Black Vera Vera, and bring a bright accent to holiday wear.
