NOTD: SH Mesmerizing Frost

*sigh*

I wanted to start using some of my Dollar Tree haul polishes, and I thought this one would be a good way to start. I won't say I was wrong, but I'll say that I was disappointed, and my quick "fix" didn't help matters any,

Sally Hansen Mesmerizing Frost looks turquoise leaning towards blue with gold shimmer in the bottle. On the nail ... kind of just a weird gold? Hard to explain & also hard to photograph. Anyway, this is another I thought I could build, but it was very thin & sheer after several coats so I thought I'd do something on the tip to disguise the VNL a little ... and for some reason thought that it would be a good idea to reach for my dotting tool.

Unfortunately, this is almost always a bad idea. When I look back at the last 3 times I used dots, I only really like 1 of the designs. And now my record stands at 1/4 because this gets uglier every time I look at it. Nothing exactly wrong, I just don't like it. I used Color Club Black for the dots & then proceeded to cover them with another 2 coats of MF (LOL, it was a MF indeed):


There's nothing exactly wrong with it, I just don't like it. Mom had much better luck, she picked another of the Dollar Tree haul polishes for her current mani, and that Guest NOTD will be coming up a little later.

Thanks for reading.
