I really like the polish in these sets(sold in sets of 7 different colors usually at Ross and Burlington Coat factory for about $6), and since I have so many unworn, I decided to use just the blue ones from some of them for a manicure.

One coat - not very impressive:
**  Una capa de pintura - no es muy impresionante:




Two coats - much better:
**  Dos capas - mucho mejor:


With topcoat:
**  Con capa final:



With stamping and a bit of Nyx Girls - Turks and Caicos.
I was trying to make this look like fish scales, but some people thought it looked more like snakeskin...

Yo estaba tratando de hacer este parecen escamas de pez, pero algunas personas pensaban que se parecía más a piel de serpiente...

  1. I've never seen these Simple Pleasures--no Ross her and I don't think to look at Burlington Coat Factory for polish--might have to change that. :) I like the stamping and glitter highlights you did!

    @KarenD: Definitely check it out! They have polish in the same section as lotions and bath wash, etc. They also carry Simply Sweet brand of polish.
