Darling Diva: Rebecca

Darling Diva: Rebecca
Denim blue scattered holo

I am not sure how old today's polish is, but it has definitely been sitting in the box of untrieds for years.

The formula is on the sheer side and I used three coats to achieve full opacity. I am pretty sure that I would have been able to get away with two coats if I had been more careful with application. The drying time is good.

I made a white and a neon pink stripe on each nail, and then dapped a bit of blue and white glitter and hexes by the base of each nail. The glitter is Sally Hansen's "Crochet".

Here's the end result photographed with flash.

Pink with glass fleck

The formula of Gabriella Salvete #133 is good. I used two easy coats for full opacity and the drying time is good.

I applied a star and a flower sticker onto my nails and dapped a bit of blue/white glitter onto each nail. The glitter is Gabrini Carnaval "C08".

Here's the final result, including a layer of topcoat.
