Never Have I Ever…

… used EIGHT COATS to get a polish to look opaque on my nails!!
This is one of my new polishes from Martian Delights and it took at least 8 coats. Oh, and you can still see nail line 🙁
It’s a shame cuz it’s a really nice colour too. Hopefully it will thicken up, maybe in a year or two, haha.

Plate: BM14
Base Colour: Maybelline Express Finish – 264 Ocean Blue
Stamp Colour: NYC Glossies – 243B
Cherry On Top: Rimmel Lasting Finish – 61 Exoctica
Top Coat of NYC

  • I almost did the cupcake one. 🙂 Looks great but 8 coats???????? OUCH.

  • OMG I hate having to apply coat after coat, 2 coats is enough, 3 at the most 🙂

    I did my Models own post today, so far its a brand worth buying 🙂


  • Wow, 8 coats! Hmm, the cupcakes looks yummy 🙂

  • Susie, Thanks. I was craving cake at the time so I thought it was applicable 😀

    Marina, I know, it was so frustrating but I really wanted to see what it would look like.

    rmcandlelight, I know, all this talk of cake is making me hungry!

  • yummy..

  • No way 8 coats!!! No way!!! I wouldn't do it. LOL
    I heard if you use a nude color first then maybe do 2 coats of the color that it works out better for really sheer polishes.

    Love the cupcake 🙂

  • Hiya, me again, I had a thought, You said you need more pastels and I have a few pastels I dont use I thought I could send them to you?

    I don't expect anything sent to me in return I just thought its better someone gets some use out of them!

    And, Marina – that's soo sweet. I've emailed you.
