Now that is a mouthful of a title. When my mom asked what I was wearing, I think I had to repeat it 2 or 3 times LOL. On it's own, OPI Be a Dahlia Won't You from this summer's Nice Stems collection isn't that impressive, although it's a nice enough pink - a little bit of a blue flash & at 2 coats a little bit of VNL, if I were wearing it alone I'd do another coat:
Very nice (imagine a Borat-voice ... even though I've never seen the movie)! The only downside is that ILLY is both multi-colored & -sized glitter, but also flakies, and the flakies are NOT very smooth. I even tried to press them flat before I did a top coat, yet still ended up with some very sharp places when I was done. I ended up using the smoothest side of my buffer to smooth those down after everything was completely dry. It seems to be a common problem with flakies but I don't understand why - Hidden Treasure always applies completely smooth for me, so if Sally Hansen can do it, why can't you OPI?
Have a look at this lovely in motion:
Almost, almost used to the not-really-nubbins =) I'm going to see how I do with maintenance filing, and attempt to stay at around 5mm of free edge until ALL my patches are grown out. I usually suck at maintenance filing, so we'll see how that goes LOL.
Thanks for reading.
