pa A86 and a question. . .
Eeeek, this color is hard to capture, but I think I got it down right! This is a minty, seafoam green FROST (aaaaaagh) that applied pretty well, actually. I took a look at the bottle and figured it would just about never 1) be opaque and 2) look good, so I slathered it all over my hands and hoped for the best.
pa applied in four coats (I'd been right about the sheerness), but it dried quickly and left very few brushstroke marks. I also, surprisingly, found the tiny brush easy to manipulate! No cleanup, no nothin'. It is just as it is.
And a picture in shade--ignore the bubbling in that corner; it breaks my heart.
Oh, I have a question for you readers out there--I have, so far, gone through three bottles of Poshe and one of SV, as well as one bottle of CND Speedey. I've recently finished the SV bottle and am now duking it out with an old-school, slow-drying topcoat. It's great (no shrinkage!) and glossy, but I'm really tired of sitting really still and moving really slowly for a very long time. I'm looking for a quick-dry topcoat that I haven't tried before: Poshe and SV are nice and I like them, but part of the fun is continuing to look around, right?
If you guys have any quick-dry topcoat suggestions, please leave them! There's an ORLY In a Snap and that one brand's Out the Door around here, somewhere, that I'd like to try...
