I'm so glad I raced out to take pics of this mani yesterday before the sun set, because there's no sun out today! But that also means my cuticles were a bit dry, and there was still some residue from the blue BYS color change polish. Eek!
For the cupcakes I used 2 coats of Warm Cocoa by Love & Beauty. The pink icing is 3 coats of Revlon Sheer Cotton, which was one of the polishes I won from Steph's giveaway. I'll review that later on in this post. For the sprinkles, I used a coat of Milani Gems. I finished off by using China Glaze Ahoy for the cherry and Milani White nail art polish for the stripes. Ah I was so careful not to smear the white stripes while putting on Seche Vite top coat, but alas Ahoy wasn't dry yet and it smeared onto the icing. I can't really tell in person though, and the cupcakes are super cute. :)
For the other nails I used 5 coats of Revlon Sheer Cotton, . Sheer Cotton is sheer but not streaky in my opinion. Which is good! I think 3 coats is fine, but 4 would be ideal for full coverage if you have long nails. Initially, I was going to do brown polka dots over Sheer Cotton on the other nails. But since I didn't have time, I used 1 coat of Milani Gems instead. Then I applied another coat of Sheer Cotton over it (this coat will be the fourth, so do only 3 in the beginning). Does it remind you of anything? Well it's not supposed to be anything like Deborah Lippman Glitter in the Air, but it was definitely inspired by that polish. I also wanted to add a little bit of sparkle on top, so I added a coat of Wet n Wild Party of Five Glitters. Next time, I think I'll use Party of Five instead of Gems, since I want the glitter to be more sparse and spread apart.
What do you think? Would you do this mani? I'm wearing it right now, and it's so cute! :3
