Welcome back! Thanks for continually visiting my little corner of the net. Have some pinks.
First is China Glaze Awakening, a chameleon along the same lines as my one true love, Orly Fantasea. That sheer reddy-purple base mixed with that copper shimmer makes this something truly amazing. Two coats was good for this, although my white-toned ridge-filling basecoat probably helped with the opacity a bit. I’d say this is two to three coater, depending on certain factors.
Yikes, this stuff is blinding. Here I have Sally Hansen Color Foil Rose Copper, a gorgeous metallic rose gold. I followed the instructions on this and used neither a top nor basecoat, and as a result, you can see where I’d had some peeling on the tips of my two middle nails. If you’re concerned with imperfections on the nail plate, you can use a ridge-filling basecoat, and then a matte topcoat, and then the foil polish once the former two have fully dried for an even surface.
Last is Essie California Coral, an orange-toned hot pink. This was good for me in two coats. I’m not sure if this is still sold, as I’ve had my bottle for a long long time, but it’s nearly identical to Essie’s Cute As A Button which is part of the core collection.
And that’s it for now! Lots of words this time around. Oh well! Thanks for reading. ❤
