And I think I've found my Holy Grail of Pink Manicures, at least for now.
Behold: Dreamy Pink Heaven
For this, I used a layer of Butter London's Horse Power Nail Fertilizer, then a bottom coat of Deborah Lippmann's Rock Hard.
Next, I did 3 coats of DL's Makin' Whoopee. I could have probably let it go at 2 but I could still see VNL. It went on easily. All the DL polishes dried super quick too--usually this many layers I have to be extra careful for awhile, but no problem this time!
On my Ring fingers, I used DL's Stairway to Heaven--it's a sheer base with opalescent glitter. But after putting it on my nail, it ACTS like a flakie! I am SO in love with this polish! It was easy to get the glitter evenly across the nail very quickly.
On the rest of my fingers, I used DL's Dream a Little Dream of Me--a pink pearlescent base with tiny blue/green shimmer. The pictures just don't do it justice. Still working on trying to get good macros. One coat of this, and again, dried easily.
I ended with one coat of DL's Rock Hard. SO all those layers, they dried quickly and it doesn't feel thick. I'd say that's a WIN! And I'm head over heels in love with this manicure, I think it's my favorite one so far, one I'm sure to do again in the future.

So, not your average manicure for November, but pinks AND Deborah Lippmann? *Happy Sigh*
