Orly Glitz and Glamour is a pretty orangey gold textured foil, but I can’t get it to apply just right on my nails. I find it takes 3-4 coats to be opaque, and I still have some bald spots. This makes it a prime candidate for a franken!
So I mixed the Orly in with some Bordeaux Glitter pigment from Coastal Scents, and got a very nice festive color. I put in one pea-sized scoop of pigment to a puddle of polish about the size of a peach pit (oh, that’s hard to say!)
It yielded a nice, dense warm orange foil. This is two coats with one coat of Seche Vite, it might have been better with two for perfect smoothness.
Of course, you guys know I can never leave nails alone, so…
Some stars and swirls from a Fauxnad plate. The finished manicure reminds me of holiday wrapping paper!
