We have on our hands, everyone, a manicure that looks great from a distance and took me a great deal of time, but make me want to cry when looking at the macro-lensed pictures. Let's take a look at the result of most of No Country for Old Men.
To start, I added two coats of Revlon Dreamer, a nice sky blue creme. Coverage was good on this one, and the colour is pretty too. Then, using my usual technique, I added all my glitter in. The diamonds were the hardest to work with as you have to cut the ends off to make sure you get full coverage at the cuticles and tips, and you'll still get a piece or two that stick up. Then, for the first time ever, my top coat smeared my glitter on the most intricate nails, as well as pooling in the cuticles. If I'd just taken a bit more time, been a bit more careful :(
The Verdict: This was a good idea but something about the base colour I used, coupled with the top coat issues just makes me said. It is sparkly though and ok when I hold my hand at arms length and squint a bit!
