Hello beautiful readers! I'm sorry for the lack of posts this week. I wanted to post this last night, but I ended up going out and didn't have the time. Hope you won't be too mad at me if I show you this beautiful combo. It's a manicure that started as a big failure, but ended up to be awesome. Here's what I'm talking about.
The base color for this is H&M Moody Model. This polish has been in my collection since last summer, but I just couldn't bring myself to wear it until now. It's a teal creme that leans very green and is pretty dark. It actually looks almost black in low light. Now I don't know if this is the regular formula of the polish or it's because it was older, but this was extremely thick. What I don't like about the H&M bottles is the fact that they don't close properly. It might have dried because it came in contact with the air, I don't really know. All I know is that it was impossible to apply and it bubbled like crazy when it dried. Here's a photo of it alone.
This photo required massive editing to hide the bubbles. After it dried so bubbly, I was unable to wear this mani on its own. I considered removing it, but then I finally decided to do a common trick used to hide imperfections: layering. So I picked up my trusty bottle of INM Northern Lights hologram top coat in silver and added just one coat. The final effect was amazing, smooth and perfect. Plus this top coats has a very shiny finish, just like glass.
These are light box pictures and they don't really show the holo effect. You can see the silver glitter on the teal base.
A little blurriness shows some of the holo effect. I ended up loving this manicure. Been wearing it for two days and I only have tiny, unnoticeable tip wear. I'm not ready to remove it just yet. I must get some thinner soon because I already have a bunch of polishes that need it desperately. So what do you think about this mani? How do you solve the problem of thick polishes?
