Jessica - Victorian Crush

APPLICATION: Smooth, though I did have to thin the polish between the first and second coats.
COATS: 2
TOPCOAT?: In some photos - see photos for details.
SOURCE: Nail supply store in LA - I think it was $3.50
COMMENTS: I've loved this color since I first saw it. When rmcandlelight wore it in this post on her blog I knew I had to get it and finally did late last year. It reminds me of Kleancolor - Fashionista, but my countertop is a mess, so I haven't been able to pull that one out to compare it to Victorian Crush.


Both rub-ons and temporary tattoos were used on this manicure (Look Jenni, no florals!).
Final look - with topcoat:

2 coats of Jessica - Victorian Crush, no topcoat:

Rub-ons and temporary tattoos - I used the small dots on the left and cut the star-like ones on the right in half:

After applying them - tattoos with water on the backing, dots rubbed on, no topcoat:

After topcoat:

  8. I too am green. With ENVY. I love that colour. I have been lemming this for a good while now. And the embellishment is fabulous.

    With some bloggers I suspect they photoshop their pix to get them so perfect but you just have perfect nails and hands. There goes that ENVY again...Grrr.
