Hi everyone, and welcome to my new followers! :)
After my experiments with Revlon Apple-tini Fizz, I decided to do a full mani with it over ulta3 Black Satin (black creme). Unfortunately my pre-polish filing got a little out of hand and I ended up with nubbins. It looks pretty punk rock though! The green is gorgeous and flaky and glowy. This was three coats - it's so shiny it looks almost like a foil in some lights. One coat is pretty and scattered, and I think I prefer that look.
And did I mention that it smells delicious? Like toffee apples (or as you Americans call them, candy apples)! The smell lasted three days and was super strong on the first day. I kept shoving my hands in people's faces and making them smell my nails though... got some pretty weird looks!
I'm not too happy with the tape mani - I cut the strips a bit too wide so not enough of the top colour (CG Midtown Magic) showed up, although I think the balance is pretty good on the thumb. It was easier than I expected, and I love the crisp lines... so you're going to be seeing quite a few tape manis in the next few weeks I'm afraid!
I was a bit annoyed when I got Midtown Magic in the mail because it looks an awful lot like Wagon Wheel in the bottle, but with microglitter instead of shimmer - luckily when you take the brush out it's obviously different. MM is purpley-brown, while WW is most definitely olive green.
P.S. Don't forget to enter my giveaway, where Apple-tini Fizz is one of the prizes! And I promise you - nail science tomorrow ;)
