Also known as the blingiest bling that ever blinged.
I asked DH what color I should paint my nails tonight and offered up the shades that I bought yesterday. Speaking of which, the Nina color held up remarkably well - I had some tip wear yesterday and today, there were a few chips but it could have stayed on a few more days if necessary. Anyway, as I listed off the colors, taupe, "what?", pink, red glitter.. he chose the red glitter.
I don't know what it was about this manicure, but the Essie that I used as my first coat (the red in the trio "Rose Bowl") went on so smooth! I was shocked how easy it was to apply and the first coat was near perfect! Maybe it was the Barielle that I used as the base coat? Anyway, this manicure was a few steps but I have bad experiences with glitters peeling off after only a day or so, so I tried a few thin coats rather than globbing it on so it would show.
Base Coat: Barielle Natural Nail Camouflage
First Coat: Essie Rose Bowl
And then 2 very thin coats of Essie Rubies Slipper (is it a typo? Shouldn't it be Ruby, singular, one ruby slipper? Anyway, what you really want to see are pictures, right?)
My photography skills are lacking, well it's moreso that I'm dealing with yellow-ish artificial lighting. This is much more "red" than it looks here.
