Today I was planning on doing a new nail look that would be appropriate for Halloween..."was." I got frustrated. My plan was to use an Orly Mysterious Curse, and then use a stencil made out of painters' tape and put a little white ghost on...
However, I had major frustration. After 2 coats on all my nails over my usual base coat, I had major bubbling on every single nail. Color me unhappy. I decided to plug on and try my little ghost idea. That so did not work at all. I had a hard time getting the tape to stick so I ended up with streaky white blobs. That stayed on my nails for, oh, all of 1 minute - about enough time to close up the polishes, throw the tape away and open the bottle of remover.
After I took Mysterious Curse (and my blobs) off, I put on Orly's Buried Alive but with no base coat. I don't have any bubbles, so I'm pretty sure Orly doesn't like my favorite base. I hesitate to try this with Mysterious Curse since it is so dark and I really don't want to deal with stained nails (if that happens with that polish?).
So, my question is this: If you use Orly polishes, what base coat do you use?
