NOTD: Sonic Bloom
These nails are actually from over a week ago but I'm just now getting around to posting this. I sort of forgot until I saw the photos on my computer. Better late than never, though! I started off with a base coat of Sally Hansen Insta Dri and then went on to this lovely polish. It's a bright red but it's sort of a coral red, if that makes any sense at all. It's very vibrant and lovely. I was stupid though and used two coats (old habits die hard) when one would most certainly have been opaque enough if only I had been more careful. After that I finished off with a top coat of NYC Grand Central Station and all that polish was just too much.
This manicure only lasted about 24 hours because it started chipping within a few hours. I'm really not pleased with my NYC Grand Central Station top coat. I feel like ever since I started using it I can never get a manicure to last even a full day. Also, you can't really tell in the photos but in real life, you could see tiny bubbles in the polish. I can't say for sure that it's the top coat, since I know I used way too much polish with the two coats. But it's something I'll be keeping an eye out for when I paint my nails again.
