Personally, I can barely swipe on a singular shade of polish without getting it everywhere my cuticles, including free-hand any quite nail-art design. And that’s an enormous bummer once you get an enormous a kick out of getting elaborate nails like I do.
I wanted a sunsetty nail design, so I picked white for my base, then light pink and coral to blend together. That’s ugly. I’m doing a terrible job. This nail polish is not my favorite. I’m blaming it on the nail polish and the nail and the camera setup. Merp. I’m just gonna do a single coat. I’m not gonna do a double coat because I just want it to dry fast and this is the base. The white isn’t even gonna show. I painted the 2 colors onto the sponge, then dabbed that on my nail. I had to feature more of the sunshine pink to actually get a good blend.
