I did this manicure so long ago. I don't remember how many coats I used. Probably 3. I usually get 2 coats done and it looks great... Then, I remember that I need to wrap the tips of my nails with polish, so I give it a third coat.
This color was "meh" to me. Don't get me wrong. It's a gorgeous shade. I'm just not in the mood to wear blues right now. In the Fall, I prefer: reds, purples, greens, and browns/taupes. I'll wear blue in the winter though... Navy or light blue (because it reminds me of ice).
I need a new top coat! Did you see how the Seche Vite was pulling the top layer of nail polish away from my cuticles!?? Grrr!... That's all for today! TGIF!
Absolutely gorgeous; however, I wouldn't wear this color for myself but it looks great on you.
I am the same as you about certain polish colors. I actually rotate my polishes just like my clothes by the seasons. So all my lighter shades are stacked away just like my Spring/Summer clothes are packed away. All my Fall/Winters shades are visible--browns/taupes/wines/burgundies.
Can you give me pointers or do a tutorial, or something, to show me how to "wrap tips", please? I have horrible shrinkage from a couple different brands (of polish AND FDTC). I do it, but it doesn't seem to work the way I do it. This is pretty, but I agree - it's more of a Spring color.
This is a really pretty color, but I agree...kind of leaves me flat and I am not sure why. And shrinkage is the worst...it is the #1 thing I hate about top coats...but that is only because I am only mediocre at wrapping my tips.
Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to leave a comment. I appreciate each and every one of them! Also, don't forget to check out my links above. There you'll find a section about me, my complete list of OPI (including photos!), and other important information. Enjoy :)
