The formula is somewhat sheer, so you have the option of layering, but you can easily build it up using 3 coats on it's own which is what I did here (I hardly ever do that). My tips are not wrapped because this would only give me stray glitters hanging off the edge so I avoided doing that. You really can't tell because of the color or the glitter. Each coat dried pretty quickly so it wasn't a problem doing 3 coats. It did dry with some grit to it. I used 1 coat of Gelous Gel Coat and then a coat of Seche Vite; It smoothed it out completely. I'm loving the Gelous; it makes my nails rock hard so I don't have to worry about breaks.
I wore this to a Ho Ho Hoey Rockin' Holiday Concert. It wasn't as good as last years' show because Lita Ford joined Gary onstage and they ended up mostly playing her stuff; new and old. I wouldn't have minded, except I paid for the tickets to hear Gary Hoey's Holiday Music, not Lita Ford's Release Party. I didn't even get to hear my favorite one but I posted it here for you to enjoy!
(The animated movie is not associated with the music; it was simply cut and clipped to go with the music.)
Note: OPI is owned by Coty which is a company that tests it's products on animals. OPI has pledged to continue their commitment to being a cruelty-free company. I know this is an area that gets a little gray and different people have different views. While I agree that Coty is more than likely making a profit and seeing some income from the purchase of OPI products, I also agree with PETA's belief that OPI can be an example of a company who can make the cruelty-free commitment and still be profitable (actually, they could see a higher profit due to meeting the concerns of their consumers). It's my goal in purchasing OPI products that it will create a friendly link where we can educate other companies and welcome other companies to join in the cruelty free movement. I know that there is a great deal of passion involved in the cruelty-free movement, but sometimes we end up talking down to those who do not follow our lead and it doesn't leave people with a positive message. It's about providing information and education in a positive environment so people feel they are making a positive change. Because it is just that: A positive change.
