LA Colors - Nuclear Energy

APPLICATION: Smooth
COATS: 3 (and it was worth it!)
TOPCOAT?: After flakies added
SOURCE: Dollar Tree ($1)
COMMENTS: After my last mani fail, I wanted to try something that wouldn't disappoint - since green and purple are my favorite colors, I settled on this purple hoping it would be as fabulous as the blue, Static Electricity, from the same brand was. I almost was disappointed again - after two coats, it was still see-through and somewhat uneven. I decided to add one more coat and was so happy with the result, I actually stopped to take photos mid-way. Juicy squishy purple - another score  for LA Colors!
Accent nails done with Golden Rose Scale Effects 01 and 14 on the left and right hands respectively.


Look at the difference between two and three coats!




Oops, didn't moisturize after cleanup on the right hand! :)

  2. This is certainly a success. So good when the 3rd coat pulls it all together.

  13. You make that LA Colors look so good--I've had trouble with them. The Golden Rose 14 is especially lovely--I would have been tempted to put it on all my nails. :)
