I used a base of Seche Natural, 2 coats of Phat Santa, and a top of Seche Vite. Squishy red coming up!
In the sun you can see my smile line (the white part of my nail) on my middle finger and pinkie. My pinkie had a trama so I had a little bit of blood seeped under my smile line, which you can see here. You can eliminate VNL by using a nude base color for your nails, or for a bright pop, a coat of white underneath.
SQUISH! In the shade, this color isn't as jelly like but still very smooth. I did not receive Ruby Deer to review, but will be purchasing one, but apparently Phat Santa is a shade darker. -squishy- Heh.
