Pure Ice - Magic, and some glitter

APPLICATION: Smooth
COATS: 2
TOPCOAT?: Yes
SOURCE: Walmart (Pure Ice) and nail supply in LA (glitter)
COMMENTS: Sorry, no photos of this one on its own. I had planned to wear something else, but decided to "play" after taking off my previous manicure and ended up with this. I like it, but need to streamline the way I apply glitter. This was my mani for the LA (MakeupAlley) Nailboard meetup - which was fun! It was so nice to spend time in the company of people who feel the same way about nail polish!

  3. Thanks for the comments!

    @Nail Designs xox: I don't wear my manis for more than 3 days usually, so I can't really say. For the most part though, a good base and top coat go a long way to making a manicure last longer.

  7. So baroque! I like it. It really suits your tan. It's not for pale hands.

  12. @Stickers: I actually think this color might look BETTER next to pale skin as there would be higher contrast.

    @The Nail Buff: I dipped a thick brush in the glitter and dabbed it on the tips. Then I tapped it over the rest of the nail to get a get a less dense amount of glitter on the rest of the nail.
