Don’t blame the polish – it’s my fault. I am totally incompetent when it comes to apply light or white nail polishes. I apply the polish too thickly, and it pools in the creases of my nails, which is exacerbated by adding a top coat. When I pick off the ragged edges of the top coat, it leaves ragged edges instead of a smooth line. Ugh, I need to start cleaning up with acetone or something…
But regardless of how ugly my paint job was, this polish is GORGEOUS in person. Pictures do not do it justice – you cannot even see the teal shimmer under neath this pink pearl polish. This is Orly “Beautifully Bizarre”, a $2.38 steal from Ulta.
The first coat was a bit streaky, but two coats was just right. I started with Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat and topped with Glisten & Glow Top Coat. I had to see it mattified, so I used Glisten & Glow Matte Top Coat on my ring finger. It was nice I guess, but muted the teal shimmer too much for my liking.
More pearlescent polishes!
