I liked this manicure, I did. It reminds me of the colors of my beach club. I finally picked up Essie Turquoise and Caicos. BUT, LO, IT IS UNPHOTOGRAPHABLE. Now, I know I'm no great shakes at photography, in addition to which my equipment is a little, ahem, amateur. But I've gotten a few good snaps here and there. And I must tell you, that of all the many photos I took of this gosh darn manicure, I could not get it to render in any way as it appears in life. So, I guess this is a no-go blogger manicure, but perhaps one I will revisit again at some later point for my own satisfaction.
Also, the glitter topcoat is Essie A Cut Above, which is really great, y'all. Like, you should have that one if you have any positive feelings about glitter whatsoever.
And if you don't, why are you here? (But don't go away.)
