I started this mani with Orly White Tips which is the only white I have. It's not great but I know whites are tricky and I'm cheap so I want to use it before just buying another bottle of white polish. Anywho... then I put on one coat of Gelous to hopefully prevent the white from streaking into the dots when it came time to put on topcoat. I was going for a dot gradient look using Orly Royal Navy, OPI Flashbulb Fuchsia, China Glaze Paper Chasing, and Ulta Ultra Violet Femme. After I finished my dots I let them dry for over an hour! I was sure that I had given myself plenty of time and was confident that I wouldn't have any of the streaking problems like I did here or here... Alas! It was not meant to be :( I started with one coat of INM Northern Lights followed by one coat of SV but as soon as I put the INM on I could tell that some of the colors were streaking. The purple in particular kind of looks like it just melted, as all the dots have a bit of a haze around the edge. So then I was mad and looked like this:
It's still a pretty fun mani though if I do say so myself. Enjoy the pics!
