Pretty purple, isn’t it? It was a bit of a pain for me, streaky and took 3 coats to get rid of any bare spots. I don’t own many Orly so I’m not sure if this is the norm with their cremes or not. Maybe I just need to be more careful while applying.
This is my first lighting bolt layer. I knew I wanted to do a double lightning bolt like this tutorial on Nailside.
And after my last color. I am pleased with how it came out and wasn’t nearly as hard as I was expecting with the tape pieces I cut. Please excuse the tip shrinkage. We can thank Seche Vite for that(which I recently read may have something to do with it’s chemical reaction with 3-free polishes since itself still has Toluene). I am currently planning to find a better alternative that is 3-free.
Base Coat: OPI Nail Envy
First Color: Orly Charged Up
Second color: China Glaze Devotion
Last color: Finger Paints Artistic Azure
Top Coat: Seche Vite
I did wait a good amount of in between layers since I was using tape, but I specifically used the metallic color in the middle because they tend to dry faster. What do you think? Thanks for reading!
