Ok, so red, white & blue together is so not my thing,
but when I saw a polish that met several of my fancies
and would work for a 4th of July mani, I decide to do it.
I am diggin' this mani!
I started with white undies,
then added 2 coats of The Lady Varnishes Stay Puft
with marshmallow scent
& micro bits that show up well over a darker base color.
See why I needed this polish?
Normally I don't like scented polish,
but TLV's scents aren't overwhelming,
yet they linger for a few days
even after adding more polish & top coat.
I did these on Wednesday & I can still catch that sweet fragrance
if I put may nails right under my nose.
Da Comparison Line Up ~ LynB Designs Frosty Snot,
All nails got one coat of holo topper.
Pinky ~ Frosty Snot
This has been my go to holo top coat for night on 2 years
cuz it adds rainbows without silvering the base color.
Methinks it may have met it's match!
Ring ~ Magik
HOLY FREAKIN GUACOMOLE PEOPLE!!!
this is my new go to holo topper!
It gave me great rainbows over WHITE.
Middle ~ Dinglehopper
Not a bad topper, it just works better over darker colors,
plus it has REAL silver flakes in it that give it that extra POP.
Index ~ Halo TC
This one would be better over darker colors too.
Thumb ~ Holo Top Coat
This one leans more towards a scatter holo,
but it does get light linear rainbows.
Again, better over dark colors.
To give all of da contenders their due,
none of them silvered da white base color & that's a plus.
However, only Magik showed a strong rainbow.
Actually, Magik does have an edge over da others
as Mildred formulated it to go over her
but it also works beautifully over darker colors.
I'll be posting a mani using it over a darker base soon!
Da Final Line Up ~ Cotton Granny Panties franken,
TLV Stay Puft, Anonymous Lacquer Magik,
plus my beloved Creative Shop Stamper
stamping polishes & CSS from Beautometry
I used da starts & stripes full nail image
from this Bunnynails plate HD-A
Alas, Dulce had a family emergency last January
that caused her to close the shop & she hasn't reopened yet.
I do hope all is well with her, even if she isn't up to selling yet.
Yeah, I'm patriotic in da dark too!
This was the main reason I needed to add Stay Puft to my stash.
Me likes da new patio chairs, Meowmy.
Dey REALLY comfy!
Day-yam it's hot!
Thanks for stopping by
& please have a SAFE
4th of July!
