Okay, I have serious issues trying to take a picture that's not only color accurate, but also epic and beautiful and cause angels to dance around your vision.
Why? Mostly because I have a huge gigantic fling with Vampy Varnish (the polish, not the blog, although the blog is quite awesome too). It's beautiful. Let me just show you, since I don't really have words:
Um, what?Oh, it's a black jelly with an emerald green and gold microglitter interspersed into it, and it's awesome. It looks like the cosmos implanted itself on my fingernails. It took three thin coats, but I'd assume most people would get away with two. It's also very very very shiny, but apparently there is no sun from where I usually take pictures (when I walked out today, though, BAM. the stars came to life. One big glittering, shimmery, shiny black-and-green awesome). Dried gritty, but one coat of seche vite will do! (Except it shrank from the edge of my tips for the first time; what the hell?)
Also also, I experienced no problem with glooping or thick polish at the beginning of my manicure, but by the time I hit the second hand, application was a nightmare. I'm surprised at that; one would think that it wouldn't dry out so quickly--either way, thinner solves the problem. :)
I should probably work on my paper, but how much do you want to bet I'll just sit there staring at my nails half the time? I wouldn't.
