The consistency was quite a lot thicker than Garnet Lapis or Blush Diamond - again, I'm not sure whether that's age, or just how the formula was anyway. It wasn't gloopy or impossibly thick, just noticeably thicker. Two coats was looking good, and I applied my Seche Vite in the usual way. And then I waited for it to harden. And I waited. And about an hour later, I wasn't thinking, and scratched my foot, and this happened:
I decided to take photos anyway, because I did want to show you the colour!
While the nails felt dry on the surface, when I checked, they were still really soft and mushy, and all the polish just wiped off with a tissue! And this was at least an hour after I'd finished painting them, perhaps more!
The colour is a gorgeous pinky-gold duochrome. It moves between a really bronzey-gold to a deep pink colour. I think it's really pretty - it's just the kind of colours that I like most. I will need to do some work though to make it dry next time! I'm wondering whether I can use something like Seche Restore to make it work a bit better... If anyone has any ideas, please let me know! It's not so much that it needs a thinner, as it's not particularly gloopy, but obviously something has evaporated over the years.
