i used contrary polish - gilded oak for my base. i used cult nails get it on for my topcoat, 2 coats of color and a coat of cult nails wicked fast.
this color went on really even and cleanup was great on it. nothing wanted to stain and i didn't end up with shimmer everywhere. contrary polishes are available from llarowe.
after that all dried i sponged on spectral tiger by different dimension. love this set....i play world of warcraft...for something like 6, going on 7 years, so of course i fell in love with this collection. if anyone wants to check out my main that i've played forever, here is her armory link. spectral tiger glows in the dark, but i didn't buy it for that. i love anything with the type of shimmer this has in it.
after that dried i used gelous and a thick coat of seche vite.
