My last manicure lasted almost a week! I really love "Band Geek"!!
I finally changed it tonight, keeping in mind that tomorrow is "Try It On Tuesday" on Jilltastic Designs FB Page., and picking "untried" polishes that have been malingering in my stash.
I also chose "untried" polishes with names that begin with "C", so I can participate in Lustrous Lacquer's "Alphabet Challenge" too.
So I started with Sinful Colors "Clementine"
This is a perfect shade of orange for me, because it's not too bright against my skin. But the formula was thick and streaky and it took 3 coats to even it out. If a polish needs 3 coats, it is not welcome in my collection. So I added about 4 drops of polish thinner, and I re-painted my pinkie with only 2 coats, and it went on much, much smoother, so it can stay!
But this is a pretty tame manicure for me. So I searched my polish names, and came up with Utopia's Polish "Coral Reef". Because of the thickness of the glitter, I decided on trying partial glitter coverage except for the accent nails.
Oh my glitterness, this is one serious bottle of sparkly explosion! I used only 2 coats of polish, and my accent nail is almost completely covered. I actually added some glamour base to my bottle just to dilute the glitter a bit. I absolutely love these colors!
You can visit Virginia's shop on Etsy HERE. She's very nice and makes amazing polishes! I have 2 more of her polishes that are "untried" too, so I'll have to keep them on the radar.
Hope you like this combo as much as I do!
