Too much purple... NEVER!

So purple is a fave polish color of mine, so why not do a multi-purple mani!! I have a few new tape ideas, that I can't wait to try, but since i'm STILL freaking feeling sick, creativity was not on my list. Oh and once again my comcast emal is down and hasn't been functionally correctly for a few days, but don't fret, as of next Friday I will be a Verizon customer, and have a new email, that I will be sure to post. Okay anyways, here is the mani I did.
I started with 1 coat of Finger Paints Aren't You Glad-iolous? and then 1 coat of SV
Then taping off my nails, I added Color Club Pucci-licious, and another coat of SV
then again taping my nails off I added Zoya Savita and left it matte. This time I didn't do a coat of SV since the matte dries so fast.
last of all, I taped them off, and added L'Oreal Luminescence, AMAZING dark purple. It's hard to see here, but it's so rich and deep, with lighter purple shimmer. You can kind of see it in the 2nd pic in the bottle. Then added my final coat of SV :)

  22. Pretty! I love the way all those purples work together. But I do have a question. How do you get the manicure to hold up with so many coats of SV in between each layer? I've found that the more layers of polish/TC I have on, the quicker the manicure tends to just peel off my nail in one sheet. Or do you not worry about it since you change your polish so often?

  25. Me again! I don't know if you can do this or would even want to, but would you ever consider doing a video ( either on your blog or you tube ) showing exactly how you go about doing one of your manis in "real time"? It would be so helpful for all of us beginners. I, for one, would be VERY grateful!

  29. Thanks you guys so much, you're all so sweet! I'm so tired of being sick *sigh*

    Judy, thanks! for a mani like this, about an hour. Since I use SV after each color, I only wait about 10 minutes to tape off for the next color :) As for a video, I know, I really need to, I just don't have the right equipment right now, but hopefully in the future :)

    Megan, Hey thanks!!! and welcome, thansk for following!!!!

    Lauren, haha, yeah I haven't really ever tried to make it last long, lol. I do know that if you wrap your tips with each layer, that would help make it last :)

    GothamPolish, aww, I don't have that one yet, sorry :(

  35. Love this awful! I featured it on my blog. (You are honestly a fingernail goddess.)

  36. So fun. Purple is my favorite color, so I just had to check this out :-)

    Can I ask, how in the world do you get your nails so thick and strong? Mine seem to break if I wear polish for a couple of weeks in a row (though I wonder if it's the polish remover and not the nail polish itself that wrecks them)
