Dazzled up Pink

This isn't my most favorite look, but it was pretty for all of the one day that it lasted, after that, I was tired of it and it came off.
 I used Orly Artificial Sweetener, Trans Design Mystic Haze nail foil, Orly Twilight, China Glaze Techno.
I used two coats of Artificial Sweetener, it was rather sheer and left a visible nail line, but I was too lazy to add a third coat.  This is from Orly's Cool Romance collection and it's a pretty dusty rose with a very subtle shimmer. 

From there, I used Robin Moses' technique for foils (I've been really into foils since watching her video) where you paint the tips with the adhesive then "tap" the foil on. Then, rather than use glitter to fill in the gaps, I used China Glaze Techno to add some extra bling to the area.

A coat of Orly Mystic Haze then went over the remaining nails followed by Seche Vite over the whole lot of them.  Unfortunately, the top coats caused the holo effect of the Mystic Haze to warp so it looks more like a plain silver foil but I like the look none the less.   I didn't balance them correctly,  I was going for an accent tip then an accent nail  but it didn't quite come out right.  Ah well, live and learn right?

Thanks so much to you all for stopping by, I appreciate you taking the time to read and comment  Until next time, take care.
