#31DC2015 008 // Metallic Nails

Like I mentioned yesterday, I'm working to get back on track posting-wise with the 31 Day Challenge. In addition to this post, I've got another one coming up that will make everything current again. Yay! METALLIC polishes are kind of a thing this Fall. With my recent purchase of Wet n Wild's Here's to the Wild Ones Collection, I had a couple of shades to choose from. In the end, I went with the bright blue of the bunch for my METALLIC nails...

Metallic Layering

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler
3 Coats Wet n Wild Pop-Up Bluetique
Wet n Wild Thrift Shopaholic
1 Coat Pure Ice Oh, Baby
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

Pop-Up Bluetique gives brand new meaning to the word bright! The metallic finish on this one makes for a searing blue that just glows! It also takes me back to those first days of not-pink polish, and Wet n Wild was the only brand that was easy to find and within the means of my teenage allowance!

After three easy coats of Pop-Up Bluetique, I dabbed Thrift Shopaholic on top and dabbed that with a wad of saran wrap. Then, I added a coat of Pure Ice Oh, Baby for a touch of shimmer that flashes blue to purple. Then I finished the layering off in typical fashion, SinfulColors Clear Coat and a coat of Seche Vite.

I was surprised by how much I liked Pop-Up Bluetique. Metallic finishes can really be hit or miss, depending on the formula. I've fallen in love with so many gorgeous metallics, only to have them streak badly during application. Thankfully, this one applied flawlessly. It's a gorgeous shade, and I think it would be an amazing base for a Galaxy mani! There's already that little bit of built-in sparkle, and trust me, you can't go wrong with sparkle!!!
