Throw some glitter, make it rain...

5:34 PM

I normally put some kind of pretty nail art on my fingers before I leave the house!  I've spent hours thinking about new designs to do and Lord knows I have PLENTY of tools and colors to use to create them.  But recently, there's been some colors that I just don't want to put art over.  This was one of them.  butterLONDON Lady Muck.  It was on my wish list for a long time and my husband finally gave into my whinging and bought it for me. :)  I added some glitter to the top and then topped it with Seche Vite.  Unfortunately, the Seche Vite doesn't get along well with the Deborah Lippmann glitters so I had some pretty major tip pull.  I'm still experimenting with new top coats.  I know people rave about Poshe and Out the Door but neither gave me the same effect as the Seche Vite.  So the hunt continues (or I'll just deal with the tip pull!)  Suggestions are always welcome! Enjoy and thanks for following!

Base color is: butterLONDON Lady Muck.  Topped that with two coats of Deborah Lippmann Today Was a Fairytale.  Two coats of Seche Vite and voila!

  1. I've heard that if you wait about 5 minutes before you apply SV it isn't as bad. I love SV so much :[ why does it have to do this?! lol.

  2. I've tried several top coats cuz I'm tired of Seche shrinkage. The best and closest I've found to Seche is Revlon quick dry top coat. I saw it recommended on another blog but didn't have high hopes. I was sooo wrong. It's amazing! No shrinkage with my Zoyas or any other brand.

  3. Have you tried Sally Hansen Mega Shine? It's glossy and dries fairly quick.

  4. Haven't tried the Sally Hansen or the Revlon. I have tried, Out The Door, Posche, NYC Color, W&W, and Rimmel. My main issue is that I use my hands a lot at work and I get chipping SO easily. Seche is the first brand I tried which dried with a gorgeous shine (and quickly!) and also kept my mani from chipping for at least several days. I'll check out the ones you guys recommended. I'm also thinking of trying the Seche UV.
