Above 3 coats of NYC MoMA, layered over 1 coat of an opaque silver polish. I love this colour but was very dis-appointed to find it was horribly sheer, so I layered it over an opaque silver from Claire's. Seconds after I applied TC and Minutes before my photo shoot I marred my middle nail - DANG!
first 2 nails are 2-3 coats, nail on far right is 1 coat - too sheer for me!
w/ 1 coat of silver and 3 coats of MoMA
Please disregard the difference in lighting and camera settings....and that terrible smear at the base of my middle nail.. Using an opaque silver or white helps a pretty, but sheer polish like NYC MOMA to be more opaque and can brighten the overall colour.
Claire's Clean Slate - 1 coat
Claire's Platinum - 2 thin coats
I would never have thought an opaque silver base would have that effect! Must try this.
Pretty sure you got the names on the pics of the two Claire's silvers reversed, :)
I LOVE MoMA over the silver, then again, I generally adore bright colours.
That looks really pretty layered. I'll have to try this since I own MOMA.
Looks amazing. That Claire's color is also very pretty. I never would expect that from an inexpensive brand like Claire's.
oh nice layering looks! :)
