Starting with two coats of RADiant:
It's not horrid, but I never would have gotten this if it hadn't been paired with the pastels and black. I mean, I could still see the silver shimmer under RADiant! I guess it would make for a neat effect, but still. It's red.
Sort of red. lol It looks more red in real life.
Up next is two coats of Hazed:
Over silver this reminds me of China Glaze Flying Dragon without the glitters. Without the silver... well... this is the mani I borked and couldn't show earlier.
So, yeah... there's those. Some people will love them. I'm just not one of those people. Maybe they'll work for some layered stamping since that keeps eluding me...
In an effort to conserve cotton balls I decided to go ahead and try Fierce Fiesta over these:
A fun (FIESTA!) mix of red, pink, yellow and blue glitters. There is some bar glitter in there (which I know some people abhor), but they're pretty sparse and I only had to re-arrange two that ended up hanging off the edge.
I love those massive glitters mixed in there. Also, I don't think I topcoated this. Conservation since it didn't really need it.
I think that's it. Up next I'll have a gorgeous essence that I've put off for far too long followed by a sort-of-early empties post. Hope everyone is having a great start to their week and good luck to everybody starting school! (^_^)"/"
