I don’t need money, honey

Hi everyone! That title is such link bait! LOL. It is actually the name of a polish I’ll be showing you today 🙂 It was my bestie’s baby shower over the weekend and I wanted to do a mani for her. Not for the baby, but for her.  It wasn’t hard to pick out a colour since she is a blue fanatic and I had a gorgeous blue foil polish in my untried pile. Let me show you what I came up with:

I started with my usual Tip Top Base coat to protect my natural nails. I painted 2 coats of essence I don’t need money, honey onto all of my nails. I don’t need money, honey is a stunning blue foil that is perfect in just 2 coats. The formula was a bit tricky for me. The polish seems to dry quite quickly, so you need to apply it carefully in order not to create bald spots. Also try not to overload your brush with polish. Rather paint thinner coats as too much polish will flood your cuticles and leave brush strokes. There is by no means anything wrong with the formula and I don’t hate it, but these tips should help you get a gorgeous finish. I also had some staining on my skin, but nothing a quick scrub with a nail brush couldn’t sort out. Once my nails were dry I used essence black stampy polish and the right hand image on PUEEN 44 to stamp onto all my nails except my ring nails. I chose this image because she loves anything damask 😉 On my ring nail I placed a 3 mm rhinestone from a wheel I reviewed here (Press Sample). I sealed everything in with a coat of Seche Vite.

I absolutely adored these. I’ve figured I actually really love a full foil finish mani. The brushed chrome effect really appeals to me. What do you think of this mani? Do you like foil polishes too?
