Ruby Kisses - Teal Envy and some marble fun

APPLICATION: Smooth, this polish is nice and thick, just the way I like it.
COATS: 1 thick coat
TOPCOAT?: Yes
SOURCE: Local beauty supply for 99c each.
COMMENTS: I love it! All the polishes are from the same brand.Teal Envy for the base. Swirled over it - the glitter is Baby Blue, the green is Tropical Green, and the blue is called Caribbean. I wore it shiny one day, and put a matte topcoat on it the next.

    Wow! That is a truly amazing manicure!!! Maybe a short tutorial? I was wondering how you did it? I'm assumingn that you put on the base color, then added drops of each of the other three colors in a row, and then dragged a dotting tool through the drops. Did you let the base coat dry first? Did you have any problems with the drops of nail polish setting up before you did the drag line? Thank you for your blog!!!

  13. Thanks for the comments, everyone! I love this mani too and am on my third day with it on.

    @finished10dnails: The way you described the process is exactly right. Base coat then added drops and dragged through with a toothpick. I don't wait for the base color to dry, and try to use polish that is:
    1. Thick enough to cover and be fully opaque in one coat without pooling
    2. Not too quick-drying.

    I'll definitely try to do a step-by-step photo tutorial, but Colette at mysimplelittlepleasures.blogspot.com has a great video tutorial in this post.

  16. The beauty supply stores near me are slack because they never have awesome polish colors like this. Grr. The blue being used a the base color is gorgeous. And I LOVE it with the matte topcoat. I wish a brand made a matte color like that.

  21. Oh I love this. I don't think my nails are long enough for the full version, but I might try something with these colours and a smaller version. ♥
