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

  2. 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 :)

  4. Susie, Thanks. I was craving cake at the time so I thought it was applicable :D

    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!

  5. 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 :)

  10. Hi there,

    I found that if you leave the bottle open for hours/days depending on the consistency it thickens up quite quickly. I wrap the brush in tin foil to stop it drying out as well.
