When I first saw these "magical green flakes," I knew they had to be layered over pink. Think of it as a modern take on this festive time of year. It's a great way to incorporate a little Holiday spirit into your nails without going too over the top. We've got plenty of time for that come December!
Galax-Sea contains green hex glitter, green glitter flakes, and irridescent square glitter. I'm not usually drawn to green glitter, or really green polishes in general, but this one is definitely unique. A mix of shard and square glitter? Sold!
The base of Galax-Sea is clear, with just a smidge less glitter payoff in one coat than Unwrap Me. That being said, it builds nicely, and 2 coats was definitely enough to layer over Cream Pink for my pictures. And about those green flakes, or shards, as some like to call them... I didn't find them to have overly sharp or jagged edges. I mean, I can feel slight indentations, and you can see some in my pics, but that's pretty normal. As a precaution, I used 2 coats of clear, (rather than one) then topped with Good to Go.
I had a feeling I would really like this layering, and I'm definitely sad that it's going to come off this evening. BUT... I'm also really excited about the next mani I've got planned, and the one after that!
