Orly Be Brave

went to the Monterey Aquarium today... all the animals are so cute! it was especially cool because wild sea lions and otters were outside in the Bay and you could see them from some of the balconies :) i was shocked by how small the penguins are... i thought they were much bigger. and by the way... puffins are SO CUTE!

today we are checking out Orly Be Brave from the Flash Glam FX collection. it's a holographic pink bar glitter and i love it! it reminds me of a polish i had when i was little... i wish i still had it, i think it was called Baby Sparks? that also had other types of glitter in it, but the pink bar glitter is a great start. my issue with the application is that the bars all want to clump together... so i went over the same places multiple times and got some really bad air bubble action on a couple nails! i used two coats on my swatching hand, then used the technique of holding the bottle upside down before starting my left hand. loads more glitter came out, but it did want to clump... comment below if you have better techniques, please!! :)

one coat Orly Nailtrition, two coats Maybelline Sapphire Siren, one coat Seche Vite, two thin coats Be Brave, one coat Seche Vite.

i love the combo of the deep blue and the pink together, i'm glad i decided against going with basic black which was my first instinct! Ria :)
