This was also my first time using the magical peel-off glue basecoat for this mani! My experience with it was so-so; I kept messing up my middle two fingers (they were thick and I kept dinging them on stuff) so it took me maybe an hour for the glue base to be ready. I didn't find the experience to be really time saving at all, but it was definitely fun to peel glitter off knowing I wasn't totally screwing up my nail plate! Plus there is a certain amount of satisfaction knowing that when you're done with glitter it'll be a breeze to take off instead of the dreaded waiting, foiling, scrubbing, foiling, shaking your fists in the air, etc.
From pointer to pinkie:
- 3 coats of bL Shambolic - whoa, super pretty blue sparkles in the base I had no idea about!
- 1 coat of Hits Pink Pop over 2 coats Zoya Gloria
- 2 coats of Seche Vite Collage over 2 coats of Orly Rose Gold
- 2 coats of OPI Crown Me Already over 1 coat of SH Celeb city - dumb move because it just made it look bumpy instead of blingy :-/
Have you tried the glue basecoat yet?! I do look forward to trying it again soon, maybe a little bit thinned out the second time around!
