31DC2012 DAY 9: rainbow nails

this was the easiest way i could think of to achieve rainbow nails. easy in the sense that it's just one polish, but also incredibly tedious. i'll tell you why in just a sec. BUT FIRST, pictures~!

3 coats* layla mercury twilight


direct sunlight (and my cute polkadot skirt!)

with flash

dim lighting

*3 coats with a caveat, because i had to use a sandwich technique to prolong the wear time. here's what i did-

1 coat orly bonder
1 coat layla mercury twilight
1 coat orly bonder
1 coat layla mercury twilight
1 coat orly bonder
1 coat layla mercury twilight 
1 coat sally hansen insta-dri clearly quick 

phew, that was a lot of work. but worth it. at the time i'm writing this, i've been wearing it for 48 hours with no tip wear! pretty good, huh? all 3 coats were absolutely necessary, though, because mercury twilight is very sheer. makes me wonder if it would be a good holo top coat. . . . hmmmm.


not much to look at in the bottle, but it's amazing on the nail :).
