Painted Polish ~ Counting Candles

Painted Polish ~ Counting Candles
Lavender linear holo with silver glitter

If you are a regular reader, you know I recently turned my blog posts around so I show the final mani first and then the base polish(es) at the end of the post. Today I’m going to turn it around again and show you the base colour first. Why?, you might ask. Because my final mani didn’t end up pretty at all. I only post it because this is a web log after all, and I also show my nail fails.

So anyway. I used two easy coats of Counting Candles for my mani. The polish was easy to work with and the drying time was good.

Here’s what two coats and no topcoat look like in the sunshine.

I absolutely love the rainbows in this one. It’s described as a super holo, which it definitely is in the sun. It’s not impressive out of the sun though – or at least it’s not my colour. Here’s two coats in the shade, still no topcoat.

Are you ready for the nail fail? Okay, here it comes. I added big purple stones to it. I thought it was going to look pretty but the stones are way too big for my nails. Here it is:

I didn’t like it at all so I took it all off right away. I promise I’ll do better tomorrow so please bear with me.

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Linear holo with glitter
Overall impression: Okay polish, impressive rainbows in the sun. A bit bland out of the sun
Buy again: No
