Where in the World - Day 5 Poland

Horray! A country I have been to and a place I visited - Szczecin! It's a lovely city on the Oder River and is close to the Baltic Sea. I welcomed 2004 NY there while visiting family friends. That evening we went to listen to a classical music concert, so I thought I would recreate the new  Philharmonic building:

Doesn't it remind you of an iceberg or maybe an icicle, or a crystal?
I started off with a coat of GOSH Holographic Hero (an awesome polish! sent to me in a swap by @gracilee on Instagram); then I sectioned off the outline of the building using striping tape. Next step colour in the building and the sky parts (using a basic white and blue by Jezy - a cheapie brand with a great range). To finish the look I used a sliver striper to go over the outline again and make it "pop", then topped the whole design with a bit of Essie Perlification, and of course Seche Vite!





I love how this turned out - better than I planned it in my head! It's a great feeling when that happens)))
