I am still perfecting getting my linear images straight on my nails, but id did get a couple straight.
This started with the lovely Hare Polish Ancient Affairs. There is just something about the odd shades that I love. Greens...olives...browns...and greys. This is just the kind of shade and finish that I like, something that looks "normal"...or as normal as a grey can look...until you look closer. This grey is filled with a multitude of baby blue micro glitters. So purdy!
The only problem I have with this polish is the formula. The base is thin and filled with so many glitters that it just didn't like being overworked. Being the perfectionist that I am, I have a tendency to use the brush a bit too much with most polishes. This one does not self level and dries surprisingly quickly, which made it a bit lumpy at the end. Of course, I'm probably the only one that would notice.
I reached full opacity in two coats, but added a third trying to fix the texture. This blue beauty definetely requires a good thick top coat (or multiple layers of a thin one) as it is a bit gritty and the glitters need that special "pop" that top coat causes.
Despite the difficulty I had in application, I still LOVE this polish. It is unique in the polish world, which makes it a winner in my book. You can find Hare Polish HERE and also at Llarowe HERE for those outside of the US.
Next I taped off 3/4 of the nail and painted with one (yes ONE coat) of Finger Paints Black Expressionism.
Finally I stamped with MJ XVII and, appropriately enough, Revlon Chroma Chameleon Aquamarine.
Thanks for looking!
