Blue Slush

Did my nails over the weekend using the following 2 colours:

Photobucket

- Del Sol nail polish in Electrick as the base, 2-3 coats
- Claire glitter polish in Glam for the gradient glitter tips

The Del Sol polish is supposed to change colour in the sun to a green shade, but it didn't work for me and I'm not sure why :( I wonder if either the sun was not intense enough this weekend, or the top coat I used (Seche Vite) was intefering with the process.

In any case I haven't been too impressed with the wear on the Del Sol polishes. I noticed that the polish dents and chips easily. The formula on Electrick also shows up streaky easily due to the metallic finish. I found I had to be careful with application to prevent the brush strokes from being too obvious. Still not convinced I'll repurchase these polishes!

Aww, it sucks that Electrik didn't work. Maybe try again without the top coat (but I hate waiting for it to dry without the fast dry top coat). The glitter tips are fun though
