After a day though, I felt like jazzing it up a bit. I'd been dreaming about arrows and spears (don't ask! I blame too much Hunger Games reading at bedtime!) and did this with my new best friend, sticky labels. Not that they're really arrows or spears, but that was what I was thinking about at the time.
First I did a gold spear using Barry M Gold Foil on my thumbs and ring fingers. I added topcoat and waited an hour for it to be really really dry. Then I added an extra spear using Rimmel Black Out, and then more topcoat.
And just to prove that I do have a right hand!
I liked this a lot. It only lasted a day though - my ring fingers and thumbs peeled this afternoon - but then there were two layers of orange, 1 topcoat, then gold, more topcoat, then black, then topcoat again, so a total of 7 coats of varnish!
