… a.k.a. The Glittery Hoof
Today the challenge demands something inspired by a colour. I wasn’t quite sure what to make of that. Should I use the colour of an object I love or one that symbolises something special?
In the end I came to the conclusion that the details are up to me and that I should work with my favourite colour. Green. Wait, teal. Gah! Layering to the rescue!
Here’s what I used today:
- essie rock solid
- essence btgn base sealer
- China Glaze Watermelon Rind
- China Glaze Atlantis
- China Glaze Sour Apple
- a little star-shaped rhinestone
- Seche Vite
First I applied one coat of rock solid, one of base sealer and five of Watermelon Rind. And just to be on the safe side in regards to drying the whole thing through I added a layer of Seche Vite after the third and fifth coat of Watermelon Rind.
I already swatched Watermelon Rind a couple of years ago, but this swatch is much nicer. Please follow this link to the review. While I still feel that this polish is wearable in three coats, perfectionists and haters of VNL will need more.
Here’s Watermelon Rind in two coats without top coat (eeek, wavy nail line):
And this is Watermelon Rind in five coats with Seche Vite:
Then I added a coat of Atlantis…
…and a coat of Sour Apple.
A dinky star rhinestone and plenty of Seche Vite finished of the teal-green glitterbomb.
Love. There’s the tealy-green base with the green and bright blue sparkles, some holo and chunky green particles. The only thing I don’t love is how clunky my nails are. o.O
