Sally Hansen 'Blue Me Away' below with 'Claire's Magic' and Nailene Black French Tip Pen
At the end of March and the beginning of April - I had a string of bad mani's; I had a serious problem with bubblez, alot of smearing of polish, wacky nail art and alot of other things were going wrong. This polish, along with 3 others I wore I had to actually start over and re-apply after I completed my manicure.... I guess I had a bit of a bad polish streak, so when things did not look as good as I knew they could, I removed my entire manicure and started over.
I did a terrible job with the french Tip pen, I did not press down my nail tip guides as firmly as I should have, and I do not believe I snipped the protruding nail tip guides that were sticking off my nails which resulted in a alot of seepage. I planned to add the Claire's 'Magic' on top of this anyhow- but still..... I am glad that the vibrancy of the S.H. Polish 'Blue Me Away' showed up. Claire's "Magic' is much more sheer than I thought and I recommend layering Claire's 'Magic' over another color.
From now on, anytime I use Nail Tip Guides = either for polish or these Nailene French Tip Pens I will be applying a coat of Top Coat over the newly painted area. I have done this with my last 4 manicures which included using nail tip guides and they always turn out perfect. You can see that in my most recent diagonal mani HERE I am pretty sure I saw this tip on Kronicals of a Konader = so thank you very much♥
Stuff I used - Nailene Black French Tip Pen, Sally Hansen 'Blue me Away' and Claire's 'Magic' ( layer this! it's awesome!)
Thumb @ 2 coats of Claire's 'Magic'
Viola! The blue still looks vibrant after two coats of Claire's magic - which was a real surprise. I always imagined Claire's Magic to be a lot more opaque than this......hmmmmm
