1 coat of base polish
Polished For Days Solar Flare (April 2018 Polish Pickup Pack), 2 coats plus 2 coats top coat. This is a blackened base polish that shifts from orange to green, with orange to green flakies and with scattered holographic effect. I did need two coats of top coat for a smooth finish. It wasn’t exactly rough after 1 coat, but it wasn’t super shiny smooth.
Moonflower Polish Dip in the Pool, 2 coats, a bright green-blue with blue shimmer. This could have been a One-Coat Wonder. I was worried about nail staining so I doubled up on base coat on my right hand. When I removed it, I did not have any staining.
1 coat of quick-dry top coat
I was thinking about how how people perceive me versus how I perceive myself. Especially as a mom (who drives a minivan), especially now that I’m 40. I know that when I was younger, I saw all moms who drove minivans as hopelessly out-of-touch, lame, with their “mom” haircuts and “mom” jeans. But conversely, if they looked too hip, then they were “trying too hard”. Man, can I go back in time and slap some sense into myself? >.<

Polished for Days Secret Garden, 2 coats plus top coat. It had good consistency.
Morning everyone! If you’ve celebrated Thanksgiving, I hope you didn’t go too overboard and aren’t uncomfortably full still. 😛 Today’s polish is Polished for Days Deephaven, let’s take a look.
Deephaven is a deep blue teal base polish with teal and blue flakes, and shimmer that shifts from blue to purple. Formula was a little thin but it self-leveled well. This is 2 coats plus top coat.
Let me know what you think of this polish!
