China Glaze White Cap

    Good morning, Dear Reader!

    I started a Valentines Day themed manicure today, which I was going to Konad the heck out of, but the layered base turned out so nicely that I thought I'd show you that and skip the Konad.

    I wanted to use China Glaze White Cap from Anchors Away, but I knew it was sheerer than I wanted and I'd need to layer it.  The choice of polish to layer over was where I went wrong - I chose Revlon Powder Puff, the shimmer white matte one.  I needed three coats, so I waited several minutes between each, then finally added a coat of White Cap and one of top coat.  It looked great, but I'd heard of drying issues with Powder Puff (which is why I went to the trouble of drying time for each coat), and I'll be danged if they didn't get me.  I messed up one nail flossing my teeth before bed a full hour and a half after I finished applying polish.  I almost redid it this morning, but then figured it was a good illustration of the drying problems with Powder Puff.  I woke up without sheet prints on my nails, so if I'd managed to avoid the dings from the floss, I would have been good.

    See the two big dents in my index nail?  That's where the floss dug right in.  Otherwise, I love it.  I'll have to find another soft white to use as a base for White Cap because it's really gorgeous.

    That's the scoop for today, Dear Reader.  Until tomorrow, love and nail polish to you!
