NotD – Mod Or Not?

At last! Finally I own a bottle of China Glaze For Audrey and it’s awesome. So much so that I couldn’t bear to cover it up with a big flashy design.

This is what I used today:

  • NailTek Intensive Therapy II – I just got this, we’ll see how my nails do with it
  • China Glaze For Audrey
  • Seche Vite
  • China Glaze Flyin’ High
  • Orly Gumdrop
  • Sally Hansen Diamond Shine

I changed my base application today. New base coat, new regimen. I applied only one coat of Nailtek (let’s hope I don’t find horrific staining after removing this manicure) under three of For Audrey and one of Seche Vite.

For Audrey is to die for, a lightish blue creme polish on the verge of teal and turquoise, depending on which spectrum you view it under. It’s opaque in two coats, but I had a couple uneven spots, so I added a third coat.
The application was good, but I’ve had better from China Glaze, the first coat was very streaky. For Audrey has the China Glaze's usual decent round brush. Overall I love this polish, the colour is truly amazing. Apparently it’s supposed to look like Tiffany’s packaging, but I wouldn’t know about that. ;-)

Let’s take a look at For Audrey in two coats without top coat. Looks like I messed up my index finger, that corner grows downward at a strange angle and if I’m not careful it’s easy to miss:

And this is For Audrey in three coats and sealed with Seche Vite:

After I spent some time gazing at my nails I broke out my new brushes and dotting tools and added some lines and dots with Flyin’ High and Gumdrop and sealed the manicure with Diamond Shine (and managed to embed a fibre, I’m having a clumsy day).

I was pleasantly surprised at how nicely these three polishes work together. And Dudes, the cute teensy lip glosses that came with Gumdrop and Lemonade smell yummy.
