My original idea for this manicure, was to use the black polish (Nail in my Coffin), and using the red sparkle polish (Once Upon A Time) as blood dripping down from the tips of my nails (Halloween inspired obviously – I am not that morbid normally :-).
Well, the black went on beautiful – two coats and done. Completely opaque and shiny. The red sparkle on the other hand, wasn’t what I expected when I started using it. The base that the sparkles are suspended in, is a clear black, and just didn’t apply as blood red (sparkly as it may have been lol) as I was hoping. Just like I did a bad job with mt top coat.
So I made Once Upon A Time, a two layer top coat over Nail in my Coffin. It actually looks pretty awesome. But I am not looking forward to trying to remove all of these sparkles! I didn`t bother to put a special base on to help when removing sparkles. (see Base for glitter polish post) Oh well 🙂
Thanks for looking ! Have great day 🙂
