Fingerpaints - Vintage Velvet

COATS:
2 (but good with just 1)
SOURCE:
Sally Beauty Supply
COMMENTS:
I've had this one unworn for so long - this collection came out way back in 2011. Actually that shouldn't surprise me, I know I have many from before that still unworn. Anyway, this beauty was opaque at 1 coat, but I added a second to make it look smoother. Love the bright contrast stamping.

Fingerpaints - Putty In My Hands

COATS:
2
SOURCE:
Sally Beauty Supply
COMMENTS:
A "safe" neutral jazzed up with some stamping.  The stamping made this more wearable to me, otherwise I would have found it too boring, lol.

Holographic pigment over gel polish

COATS:
2
SOURCE:
Aliexpress
COMMENTS:
I had wanted to try this for a while and decided I was finally ready to be "blinded by the holo". Started with two coats of Le Chat gel in Obsession, topped with no-wipe topcoat, then buffed in the holo powder and topped with another layer of gel topcoat.  I could barely keep my eyes off of my nails!

A textured polish that ooked much better after it dried completely as the sparkles showed then. It wasn't completely dry in this photo.

Abop Franken - taupe with flakies

COATS:
2
SOURCE:
Abop franken = Barielle Buddha-ful + ?? (I don't remember what else I mixed this with)
COMMENTS:
As much as I like the flakies in this, I don't think the base color is flattering on me. Good thing it's a mini-bottle.

Revlon - Persuade (again)

COATS:
2
SOURCE:
Big Lots / Dollar Tree
COMMENTS:
I told you this one was a favorite - here I am wearing it again, lol! It's just so complete on its own at two coats, no need for nail art. I'll have to try it with nail art if I end up posting it again.

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Slick Slate

COATS:
2
SOURCE:
Don't recall - one of the following: Rite Aid / CVS / Walgreens / Walmart
COMMENTS:
I didn't particularly like this color on me, so I felt like I had to stamp over it to keep it on. That definitely made it more wearable.

I don't usually wear colors like this as a full mani, but this one looked so sweet on me that I didn't mind having to put on the 3rd coat.
