I’m so pleased with this colour. It’s a gorgeous royal blue, that can show up very bright or deep, depending on the light. without a topcoat it has a leather-y/matte finish. It’s in the removal, however, that you find out why it’s so cheap. Stained my cuticles blue! for like 2 days!
I had a pretty big interview so I kept it simple, but still chose a blue that makes a bit of a statement, just by being so subdued. Does that make any sense? Maybe not. Whatever, a cloudy blue, and I love it.
This morning I was set on using my Secret Peri-wink-le CG polish, and originally I had wanted to try my hand at a ruffian nail.
I started with one coat of Revlon’s Silver Dollar
and then freehanded the blue on top.. without using guides I ended up having different amounts of silver on each finger, but I was still happy with it.
The problem here is that I had to use 2-3 coats of the blue to cover the silver. and after using my Seche Vite it just wasn’t setting properly. 5 fingers were messed within 15min. And so I started again, but went for the tribal nail I just posted instead =] x
Instead of putting on one base coat of my Nail Hardener I put on 2. However two coats of that hardener and 2 coats of a polish and a top coat make long-term wear impossible, So I just add one coat of polish on the tip =]
*note* you can tell it’s a bad day by looking at the tips.. all chipped and uneven *2nd note* I’m still trying to figure out how to keep my polish from running along the french guides. I’ll work on straightening those lines!
