Here's a mani from a few months ago.... I wasn't totally happy with the darker purple colour that I chose, but because blogger isn't working for me and I cannot upload all the photos I want to I'll post this instead. I started with a base of Billie Cosmetics in Turquois ( lol ) - I let it dry then affixed thin tape to my nails and added 2 coats of Billie Cosmetics Mauve ( lol ). I should have done a better job and added more coats of Mauve, or at least filled in some of the bare spots. When everything felt dry I removed the tape and added 1 coat of top coat......
Next time I will use a more opaque polish and more than one coat of TC.
Stuff I used - Billie Cosmetics Turquois and Billie Cosmetics Mauve ( lol at those names )
