Inspired by Hudson's Bay navy blue socks

Back in March I posted Hudson's Bay Company (HBC) nail art stripes with the traditional white/ivory background and primary coloured (+ green) stripes. This time around, I've got the reverse HBC nails, or the signature stripes over a navy blue background, which generally looks something like this area rug. My direct inspiration featured in the pics is this pair of women's HBC socks.


To do this mani I first painted two thin coats of white polish as a base. I did this instead of a navy blue base (which might be most intuitive given that the majority of the nail ends up being navy blue) in order to provide a light base for the red and yellow polish which wouldn't have come through nice and bright over a navy blue base.

Next I taped off horizontal stripes using medium-sized nail vinyls to paint in the four lines of navy blue across the nail. Once I removed the tape, I filled in the yellow, red, and green with a small paint brush to save time, instead of re-taping over the blue then layering on the colours. This resulted in the lines being a tad imperfect, but hey, I was starting to feel meh about this mani.






Polishes used:
- Orly 'Pointe blanche' (white base)
- Maybelline Color Show 'Fierce n' tangy' (bright yellow)
- Essie 'Forever yummy' (bright red)
- Seche 'Versatile' (green)
- Seche 'Wonderfully witty' (navy blue)

Most manufacturers use top quality packaging material in order to ensure that the lipstick does not fade away in a short time. The shape of the boxes has a lot to do with how long the boxes last. Most women prefer to use the custom shapes. These shapes are available in several colors and some of them are round, square, triangular and heart-shaped.LIPSTICK-BOXES

  10. The bottom line is this: if you want your cosmetic packaging to last, you need to take care of it before it breaks. This means that you should clean the counters regularly and refill them with extra packing materials whenever they become too full. If you buy cheap packaging materials, then the chances of them breaking are high. That's because they may not be made from good quality materials and can easily fall apart after being exposed to harsh sunlight, moisture, heat, dust, and chemicals. On the other hand, cosmetic packaging experts who know how to properly package your products in high quality counter presentation boxes stand a better chance of preventing your products from breaking down.
