Today I have a sparkle plenty manicure to show you. I applied two coats of China Glaze Liquid Leather, a shiny, shiny black crelly and topped it with two coats of Revlon Galaxy. Galaxy is a clear blue base with multicoloured fine glitter and lots of hex sequins. The base can apply a bit unevenly and dries ever so slightly dull. For those reasons, even tho Galaxy is described as a top coat, I applied a coat of Seche Vite.
This manicure is a bit thick, and is drying and curing pretty slowly. And, thanks to the Seche, I have some pretty incredible shrinkage at my tips, dagnabbit! I wish I could find a fast dry topcoat that dries and cures and gives that glorious, glossy shine that Seche does without all the stinking shrinking. I would jump on it.
Revlon Galaxy is very pretty. I was a little disappointed that the sequins are so sparse and required a second coat to get some on my nails. The base can be a bit uneven upon application and it does dry a tad dull but topcoat takes care of that very nicely. All in all, I like this sparkler; it is a keeper and I will definitely use it, again. :D
Photo dump time!
