I did today's nails really quick-like and it shows...I just wanted to get something out.
I used Fingerpaints Purple Palette as my base color. It's super sheer and I ended up doing 4 coats to get to this opacity because I chose to not use any 'underwear'. Then I did some drippy tips with Orly Halo. It looks much better in person than in the pictures but if I did it over again I'd use a creme for the drips...much easier to work with.
Don't mind my skin owie - I got too zealous with my file.
