12 Days of Christmas Nail Art Challenge ~ Tinsel

Hello Dahlings!

We're in the home stretch now!

The line up: Orly Meet Me Under The Mistletoe & OPI Save me.
 
This is 2 coats of Meet Me Under The Mistletoe.
 
I have to admit...I'm not thrilled with how this turned out. I think the concept was good, but with out Seche Vite I was glad to take it off the next day. I used my short striper to place the bar glitter of Save Me where I wanted it & then used Orly Top 2 Bottom as top coat. I love most Orly products, but I can't recommend this one. I don't know how well it would work as a base coat, but as a top coat it sucked canal water with a BIG straw. It went on very thin & runny, plus it took forever to dry. I had 2 major dings where the polish was chunked off & my thumb looked like it had shrinkage, but it was from the polish getting pushed back. All this before bedtime! I'll test this polish to see if it works as 'glue' with embellishments like fish eggs, gliquins & flock, but I won't use it as a top coat.
 
Thanks for stopping by & please visit the other challengers!
