vintage sparkle

let me start this post out by saying that i'm not sure i liked this mani. i didn't hate it either, just. . . .  meh.

i started out with this:

can you see the tiny gold shimmer?

i wanted a soft, off-white look, so i started with 1 coat of cq vintage (an off-white amazing creme that's in my top 10) to make it mostly opaque, then added a coat of wet 'n wild megalast hush hush (a white jelly), and a coat of revlon colorstay calla lily (a white sheer with beautiful tiny gold shimmer). i didn't want to see any VNL, but i also wanted it to look soft. 

but THEN i had to add yet another layer (orly shining star):

i guess it's pretty, but i don't know. . . . all of the layers ended up too thick for my liking. oh well. i wore it to a friend's wedding, so i guess this is appropriate for events like that. not too crazy.

here all all of the polishes i used:

cq vintage, wet 'n wild megalast hush hush, revlon colorstay calla lily, orly shining star

at least shining star is really pretty. am i the only one who has that earth, wind, & fire song in my head now?
