Back in September, 2012 I did my 1st mani post for a new Indie company called Llama Lacquers. Llama Lacquers is the polish child of Crazy Nail Lady & her 1st collection was named after one of my all time fav movies, The Princess Bride. The mani I did was badly done with cheap black undies that rode up & old nailstickers that bled under tc plus my skill taking photos with my phone was sadly lacking. Hence the post name: Cool Polish, Crap Mani. Since then my nail & photography skills have improved, so I thought I give this polish another chance to be appreciated.
The line up: a Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear silver mini from one of the packs of 4 currently in stores, that don't have names on the bottles, but did on the box, that I forget to write down & Llama Lacquers The Mani In Black.
This is 2 coats of nameless SH silver. It was a lil challenging to get off my skin, but the streaking was tolerable since I was using it for undies.
I did 2 coats of MIB over the silver then added French tips in the silver topped with my usual Seche Vite FDTC. The black jelly base of this polish is fairly sheer so the silver base color looked antiqued & the glitter looked silver near the surface & as dark as gunmetal nearest the base. I know all the glitter you can see in this pic look black, so I took a daytime outdoor shot for you:
See all the shades of shiney gray? I do like this polish & am glad I gave it a fair shot to be see in a better light.
Thanks for stopping by!
