Today I tried out a couple of new Dare to Wear polishes that I recently purchased. They are a bright yellow called Yellow Twist, and a bright blue called Pillow Talk.
I started with three coats of Yellow Twist to get a nice solid yellow base. Normally I would only apply two coats, but I just didn’t get the coverage that I wanted with two. I also applied one coat of China Glaze top coat.
After letting this dry for several minutes, I applied a French manicure tip guide to each of my fingers (purchased at this ebay store). Since the stickers can sometimes be extra sticky and peel off your base coat, I first stuck it to my hand a few times to get rid of some of the stickiness before applying it to my nail. I also like to clip off the ends of the sticker after I apply it… not really necessary, but I do it anyway. Then I applied Pillow Talk to the tips, and then carefully removed the stickers. After letting them dry for several minutes, I applied another layer of top coat.
