Another thing to be aware of is that this is not a quick manicure. It takes a long time to dry and it really needs to set a bit before you put on the next layer, so with a base coat, 2–3 coats of polish, a coat of Gealous to smooth it out, and another of Seche Vite to speed up the drying time and we're talking quite a time commitment here. I spent about an hour just doing four nails, but I also wanted them to be picture perfect, so there's that to consider as well. Even at that, I smudged my pinkie as I was taking the photos, so I would definitely give it at least a couple of hours before reaching into a purse or pocket.
Because of that, this is not a manicure I'd be likely to do very often, but it really is so pretty and different it would be a shame not to do it at least two or three times over the course of a summer.
Thanks, Sunny! It was a privilege trying one of your lovely polishes!
