I believe this was three coats due to the need to even it out - sometimes these lighter, bright colors requires that. The color is slightly washed out on my photos, something that seemed to happen to many shades released for last summer, since super saturated brights were da thang. Overall, thisone made me happy to wear.
Then I got an idea. I received a cute Essence in a package from the ever helpful Alli McBally, namely Glisten Up! from the Colour & Go line. It's a sheer turquoise blue with sparse blue shimmer, and equally sparse holographic glitter and blue flakies. My nails turned into a sunkissed swimming pool, full of chlorine!
I believe I applied two coats of Glisten Up! on top of the Viva La Diva. My photos stink, but I assure you that this was an awesome manicure!
Some of you have noticed by now that I have redesigned the blog entirely. I kept all right column widgets, but changed the template since my old Minima one was so messed up that many features I wanted to use didn't work. I went further into the land of simplicity, and made it all alizarine red while I was at it. I know this will sadden my dear friend Teresa, but I hope most of you will appreciate the fact that you can now actually tell the author of a certain post - this seems to have been a bit confusing to some of you, even though I can clearly tell mine and Cammi's nails apart. ;) I have posted a poll at the top of the right column, so if you read via an RSS reader, please take a moment to tell us how you like the new design. So far, 3/4 of you preferred the old one.
Swedish word of the day:
simbassäng -noun swimming pool
I prefer my own bath tub...
