These are two coats of Ellen Gold Agua Marinha over Essence XXL Nail Thickener. On its own it has a rather gritty finish but one generous coat of top coat suffices to smooth things out. I finished the look with Ciate Speed Coat. Side note on Ciate Speed Coat: this is really a fast drying top coat that hardens the mani nearly as quickly as Essie Good to Go. However I am not overly pleased with its wearability and while it does not chip or dent it turns sort of dull after one day of wear. So if you change your mani daily this certainly does not matter but if it has to go a couple of miles I always go for either Essie Good to Go or Butter London Hardwear.
Isn't this a lovely shade of blue? I think this is as appropriate in winter as in any other Season - your thoughts?
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
