I redone my gel nails yesterday, as I do with Depends Gellack.
White, white, white has been my melody, except for one of the times when I have had pink. Think that white is so fresh and nice, while it suits everything.
But this time I wanted something different, and tested a purple glitter varnish!
However, it did not turn out as well as expected, which resulted in a number of extra layers and it turned out as nice as usual (but it suffices).
The problem was that I thought the purple lacquer was as opaque as the others I tested, but when I painted on the first coat, I realize that it is transparent with a purple tone, and silver glitter in it.
I did not dare to add a lot of layers to see if the result was better, it is not super easy to remove and especially not when they are newly made.
So I thought I might have primed with white, so I painted white over it (2 layers to get a good covering result) and then the purple again on top. But I did not like the varnish at all, I must admit, it sparkled nicely but the purple made the nails quite grayish, it was not a nice purple shade in my opinion.
It might have been good if you had the pink underneath instead, or another purple, or more layers of the purple glittery… But it would have been crazy too many layers to try to save it that way, so I just painted over with white again and let it be so.
Not the most fun post in the world, but then you know at least how the glitter varnish works if you are hungry for it!
Have any of you used the glitter in a way that got better? :)
