31 Day Challenge: Day 8, Metallic Nails

Metallics! Yes! I can use one of my favorite polishes! This is Chrome by Nail Savvy. I have had this polish the longest out of all my polishes, about 8 years. I love it. It was one of the first polishes  I could really use and not make a mess. But it stinks to high heaven! :) I used two coats, one would be fine, but I wanted to get rid of the brush lines.

What's this? Another shatter after yesterday's blunder? I decided to try another brand today. This is Fuchsia Shock by Sally Hansen. It went on much more smoothly than the OPI one. So smooth I didn't think it was going to work. But it did. And it didn't do too horribly. I think if I did all my nails with this pink shatter then it would be way too much. But it did nicely for the accent nail.

I also added a layer of Prisma Gloss Silver by Orly over the shatter. It was too dull, it needed sparkle!
