Three coats. I had a bit of a troublesome application, as the case usually is with bright or neon yellow toned lacquers, but after the three coats and a generous slobbing of topcoat it came out okay. Acquired only recently although it's from last year's summer collection, as I tend to get very bored with new China Glaze collections after seeing them pretty much all over the internetZ. But now was the time, and I love it!
Great thing: You can use this manicure as a flashlight when attempting to find the outhouse in the middle of the (not very dark) Swedish night. This shit glooows.
Now time for a manicure that did end up on camera, but rendered in nonqualitative photos. Though, since you're visiting this blog, I'm sure you'd like to see it - it's olive green! This is Fashionista from Kleancolor.
Two coats. Great opacity here, decent drying time, and helluva color. I can't get enough of these. (Comparison wheel coming up soon - promise.)
The top photo was shot at the time of day - night - when the northern Swedish summer is at its darkest, just before midnight. In the midst of summer, it never gets darker than a rainy day. (Further north, the sun doesn't set at all.) Not the best time to shoot, that's why it's so terribly grainy, but the bottom photo was shot the next day. Also, this one wore pretty well, accordingly to my few experiences with Kleancolor, so you will be seeing it again shortly. [Insert intriguing thriller like music.]
Swedish word of the day:
midnattssol -noun midnight sun
Some day, I'll be watching it!
