Here's a couple different images. This is four coats the four coats of NYS Hot Sky Blue by itself. It dries kinda matte.
Then added a coat of QD to give a bit of shine.
Two coats of Revlon Galaxy. I really only wanted a little glitter as I planned on stamping it afterwards but didn't get any hex glitter on some nails the first time so had to do a second coat. I'm pretty sure this is when my nails got really thick. Look there-its like I got acrylics!! I had to laugh at myself. Added one last coat of QD and then off to bed.
Thats some serious layerage! LOL!!
This morning, I stamped before heading out the door. I was amazed how much shrinkage I had, given I used the red bottle of SH QD and didn't use SV at all! I've been using SH QD for a few manis now and haven't had any shrinkage so was really surpirsed. Still kinda disappointing when you see this when you wake up. Anyway, quickly did a stamp on accent finger with Nicole by OPI Postive Energy using IP XL F.
I really liked the NYS polish with the jelly finish but would use underwears for sure as I'm not too fond of VNL plus don't have time for four coats of polish for a mani. But all in all, I don't mind the look of it-really like the tealish blue of the polish with the glitter-just wish there wasn't so much shrinkage. Oh well, just an excuse to redo my nails tonight!
Thx for looking!
