A Couple of Recent Manicures

I have several recent manicures that I liked to show that I have done recently.

This is the first:

This was 2 coats of Hard Candy in Frenzy.  Very pretty teal blue.  However, Since I was in a huge hurry, I did not use a base coat with this, which was a gigantic mistake.  When I took it off, I had stained nails and spent about 15 minutes buffing the worst of the stains off.  Needless to say, I had to put something on to cover up what I could not buff off so....

This was 2 coats of Revlon polish in Catty from the Edgy Elegance Fall 2011 collection.  Catty is (I suppose this is the correct term) a foil polish in a aged gold color.  This time, I made sure to use my favorite base coat, Pro FX Ridge filler.

Next up:

This was 4 (or 5) coats of Wet n Wild's Ocean Grotto from the Mermaid's Cove Collection from Spring 2011.  Nice and sparkley.

 This was one (somewhat thick) coat of Borghese in La Strada Rose, layered on top of the Ocean Grotto.  This color has a pretty rusty-rosey shimmer to it.  I was in a hurry this time, which is why I just put the new color on top.  I was quite impressed with La Strada Rose since the last time that I used a Borghese polish, I had to put about half a dozen coats to get it to look opaque.
