I used a base coat of Zoya Get Even, 2 coats of polish and I decided to go without a top coat because I loved the shine that these colors produce on their own.
So this was before a manicure - can you tell? My cuticles were horrible, especially my middle finger!!! I love the base color of this blue - it reminds me a bit of Zoya Crystal - without the gold.
I'm not sure how I feel about metallics. I think they are pretty awesome but they are also awesomely shocking on the nail. I like the idea of toning it down with glitter, crackle/shatter or even some Konad.
Indoors with a flash - kinda fail on this one. But at least you can see that metallic blue ... and a bad polishing job. Hah, seriously - fail Krystal... fail.
