To quote myself tweeting this manicure the same evening: Is it cancer? Is it herpes? Is it Lady Gaga? The Milani glitter is pretty dense, so this is one coat only - I even tried to keep it thin - over three coats of the OPI.
However, the next day my manicure started to look a little cracked, since I'm one of those who have thin and soft nails and my nails easily bend. But I just couldn't bear parting with my crazy nails yet, so what did I do? I tried layering another coat of Your Royal Shine-ness on top of it.
...And this is one thin coat on top. I love how it looks all dented, like something a grade school student would have made in crafts class. (We hammered tiny copper bowls back in the day when I was a kid.)
As far as I am concerned, this is, thus far, The Manicure Of The Year in my house. I loved this one to pieces - literally. I had to file my nails down for yet another work shift at the nursing home, and did so without removing all this glory.
Also, this is what the infamous Deborah Lippmann Marquee Moon should have looked like. (Yes, I own that one too - painfully.)
How do you like it?
Swedish word of the day:
buckla -noun dent, buckle
Oh yeah baby.
