Monday Layering

Hello ladies!

Finally I'm in the mood to do my nails today, I guess I need to pinch myself every time I feel lazy doing it lol. So lately I've been busy with giveaways! Yeah you heard me giveaways baby. I'm addicted to it, in fact I won for the first time a giveaway by The Painted Pony, if you haven't followed her better check her blog out. I won a full size Lush Lacquer Polish of my choice and I chose "Snow Globe".

So I cannot wait for it to arrive. Well moving on, my mani for today is all about layering. Since I have this glitter polish that I only used one time and I kind of have a mixed feeling about it, I was not quite impressed when I wore it for the first time, and I'm talking about OPI Save Me from Nicki Minaj collection and now I realize why. I will tell you about it as I go along.

I used:

Base Color - Fly by OPI
1st Layer - Paying With Platinum by Spoiled
2nd Layer - Save Me by OPI
Top Coat - Seche Vite

1 thick coat of Fly by OPI no top coat
Fly layered with 1 coat of Paying With Platinum no top coat
final layer 1 thick coat of Save Me

with flash

Save Me is a beautiful glitter polish with a clear base composed of silver micro-glitters, teal and holo bars/strings glitter. At first I didn't liked it at all, but now I know why, this is one of those glitter polish out there that you need to have a specific base color in order for you to appreciate its beauty or better yet wear it alone. So now I'm loving it, just need to have a perfect base for it. So that's it for me today guys, til next time.
