Ah, she always knows to sit exactly on top of what I'm trying to get at. Such a good kitten...
The look of incredulity.
("Move? But me comfy now")
Let's start at the beginning of my story. I really like green polishes and I'd been umming an ahhing over whether to get Models Own Pro polish in Olive Pearl. The other week I took the plunge and bought it. That's where the trouble started.
Here's my first attempt at wearing it. It was all streaks and bubble, humph! :(
Never mind, I'm not one to give up so easily, so I gave myself extra time one evening to apply it really slowly.
Much better this time, but it took about 45min for just 3 coats and a topcoat.
The topcoat really helped even out the appearance of the streakiness.
As much as I liked Olive Pearl in the bottle, on my hands it kind made them look dead; which is fine if you're going for a "dead hands" kind of look. ;)
To try and warm up my dead hands I added a coat of Essie Luxeffects As Gold As It Gets. I think it really helped, and I've tried to capture the golden flakes in natural...
.....and artificial lighting.
Of course I couldn't stop there so I added a crackle topcoat in KIKO Light Gold (615) on my ring and pinky and Taupe (613) on my index and middle finger.
I am so glad I added those crackle top coats. The Taupe is my new favorite (great colour and formula), but the Light Gold is gorgeous too.
I hope you enjoyed that long post. I'll try and post a more sensible Kitten Mondays post next week. :P
