Let's start with the good and we will work our way to the bad :(
I felt that artificial light captured the holo the best, but here it is in the sun.
This isn't the bad, but you see my cuticles in the above pic? Well I use lotion constantly, focusing on my cuticles and the dry cuticle skin still returns! I have used Nailtek lotion (which renews everytime it touches water), OPI exfoliating exfoliating cuticle lotion, many different cuticle oils, and I recently started using CND Rejuvenate and Renew (I think that's what they're called); none of these get me anywhere! If anyone has any suggestions please let me know in the comments.
Now onto the bad...
This is taken with sunlight behind my nails, and you can clearly see the dragging effect.
I used Nail Tek II basecoat and 3 coats with a coat of Seche quick dry. Then I did one more coat of #63, which helped cover up the visible dragging and another Seche topcoat.
I felt that I could feel the grittness of the polish as a applied it. Did anyone else feel that or was it just me?
This is my second day of wearing this and I opened a closed full banker boxes all day (and those are very hard to open and close) and I haven't had any chipping!
For the work that I had to do to apply it, I just can't stop looking at my nails!
How do y'all like my new layout?
