Ellagee ~ Bad Romance



Ellagee ~ Bad Romance
Cherry red linear holo

This is the third Ellagee post in a row. I’ve shown you two Facebook Customs, and today I’m going to show you the mother of the two: The cherry red base colour all on its own.

It’s a jelly but it covers better than the two customs. I ended up with three coats but maybe I would have been able to get away with two if I had used thicker coats. Drying time is good.

Look how pretty two coats and no topcoat is taken with flash:


I love those rainbows.


Here’s a low light picture. It’s a little bit too dusty for me.


So I decided to try something new. I painted black polish on one of my stampers and white on another. I let it dry, gave it a second coat and let that dry too. Then I topcoated it, and when it was fully dry I lifted the two decals off the stamper and cut them into little triangles. I applied a layer of topcoat on my nails and lifted the little decals onto the nails with a dotting tool.

I applied a second layer of topcoat, and my work was done:



The low light picture. I like it with black and white on it!



Number of coats: 3
Drying time: Good
Finish: Jelly holo
Overall impression: Pretty rainbows, but I’d love the colour to be more red
Buy again: No
