Sally Hansen Pink-Grapefruit Layering

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
4 Coats Spoiled Show Me Some Skin
3 Coats Sally Hansen Pink-Grapefruit
1 Coat Seche Vite

So, I've bypassed brights and pastels for the day and gone neutral. I can't say that I'm the biggest fan of neutral polishes. Don't get me wrong, I think they always look great on other people. It's just... on me...? They feel kind of bland. After painting just one coat of Show Me Some Skin last night... I knew my manicure needed some sparkly assistance.

In the photos above... the bottle of Show Me Some Skin looks like it should match my skintone perfectly. Only, it's got more of a rose-toned vibe going on. So, in an attempt to get it a bit more pink that most people would probably wear it, I layered on 4 coats. Then, I added 1 coat of Pink-Grapefruit and liked it so much, I went back and added another 2 coats of shimmer.

As I replaced the cap on my bottle of Seche Vite, I wasn't too sure about this layering. Like I said, me and neutrals are just not a thing. I like wearing polish that's bold or completely contrasts my outfit... so, this one took a little getting used to. The more I look at it, the more I like it. Weirdly, I also feel an incredible sense of deja vu when I look at it. I don't think I've done a similar layering here, but I'm thinking there's gotta be another blog that did something like this... or maybe a similar all-in-one shade? I can't say... and I'm also not too sure if this layering will make it to Saturday morning! You know me!!! :)
