A little while ago, I posted this and left out one of the sparkly topcoats because I couldn't find a good stock picture. Well, that was the first topcoat that I tried. I started off painting my nails a light pink from one of those French manicure sets because I thought the blue flecks would look summery and cute against a light, light pink background.
Wow, was I sorely mistaken.
The glitter topcoat that I had bought was not clear with blue flecks - the topcoat itself was tinted blue. I'm assuming that unless you painted a really dark color or another shade of blue as your nail base, the blue in the topcoat will overwhelm whatever you put under it. What a bummer! Looking at this, would you have thought the topcoat itself was blue?! Here's what it looked like:
|I have no idea which color the Sally Hansen is, but the topcoat is Wet N Wild Use Protection|
I mean, really - you can't see through the blue!!! Even after one coat it looked like this, so I just went ahead and painted on two coats of the topcoat. If you're gonna use blue topcoat, may as well make sure it's a nice blue.
This is what I have on my nails right now:
